eBook-Lasting Hope: Devotions for Lent 2019

This beautiful, full-color Lenten devotional explores the Psalms texts for Lent in year C of the Revised Common Lectionary with 46 entries, one for each day in Lent. Each reading is accompanied by a photo, a quote to ponder, a reflection, and a prayer. This accessible and colorful format makes it easy to incorporate a simple Christian observance into your Lenten journey.

The book of Psalms gives us a realistic look at the journey of faith for individuals and a community. From crying for help to singing songs of praise and thanksgiving—and everything in between—the psalms show faith with all its ups and downs, twists and turns.

More importantly, the book of Psalms points us to God. During times of celebration as well as suffering, loss, and lament, the psalm writers turn to God and remember God's promises—promises kept and promises still unfolding. God's faithfulness to these promises creates a durable, lasting hope in the psalmists and in the community of God's people. Lasting Hope explores psalms assigned to Ash Wednesday, Sundays in Lent, and to Holy Week in this liturgical year (year C of the Revised Common Lectionary).
