Lent is an ideal time to pray and reflect on the gift of life God offers to us through Jesus Christ. Traditionally, it is a time of repentance, fasting, and preparation for the coming of Easter. In God’s Gift of Life
, Larry Beman invites us to create a holy space for Bible study and to open our hearts and minds through self-examination and reflection so that we might grow in our faith. He brings a relaxed and invitational tone to the study of the Scriptures and includes personal stories that help us to apply them to our daily lives.
Through the study of the Revised Common Lectionary
texts for Year A, Larry Beman helps readers experience the blessings of the life given to us through the ministry, suffering, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
A Leader Guide by Nan Duerling, with Bible background and suggestions for group activities, is included in this book.
