Walking through Lent with Tom Wright

Posted by Les Ellison  ·  Be the first to comment

There are plenty of Lent courses, but few keep your group or private Lent devotions in line with what happens in church on Sunday. Tom Wright’s ‘Lent for Everyone: Luke’ lets you keep pace with the Sunday Lectionary readings and teaching for Year C (Advent 2012 – Advent 2013).

Born out of ‘The Big Bible Project’ - a Durham initiative to get more people reading and talking about the Bible together, the little paperback contains 53 real and relevant reflections of no more than 2 or 3 pages. From Ash Wednesday to the Sunday after the Easter holiday, each reflection includes the whole of the relevant Bible text from Tom Wright’s own easy-to-read translation of Luke’s Gospel.

Naturally, the whole study echoes Tom Wright’s recurring theme of the Kingdom of God being both here, but not yet here; so in that respect, it’s got no surprises. But in his clever yet never uncomfortable style he does refresh you with the things you already know… or think you know… or ought to know. Which is a good thing; especially in the lead up to Easter.

If you’re looking to do your own version of ‘The Big Bible Project’, Luke is a sound introduction to the story and meaning of Easter. And with Tom Wright as a guide, it’s sure to get both Christians and non-Christians reviewing what they believe about Easter and what the Bible says about it.
