...Christian believers claim that the cross is God's action to set right what has gone wrong in human life--to heal the estrangement in our relationships with God and with one another, and to restore wholeness to this sin-damaged creation. My prayer is that as we make our way toward the cross during the days of Lent, exploring the questions and answers together, we will discover God's power to transform our lives.--adapted from the introduction
This seven-session study, appropriate for both group and individual use, provides one lesson for each week in Lent and one for Easter. A brief reading for Good Friday is also included. Each lesson includes a Scripture reference, a brief reflection, questions for study or discussion, and a brief prayer.
Sessions focus around the answers to the question, "Why Did Jesus Die on the Cross?" Abingdon Press
