Meditations on Lent, from one of the church s greatest English writers
From the Grave is a collection of 40 daily readings from the beloved 20th-century pastor and writer A. W. Tozer (1887 1963). Gleaned from his transcribed sermons, editorials, and published books, each moving reflection has been carefully selected for the season of Lent.
The purpose of Lent is to prepare us for commemorating Jesus s self-sacrifice, and to help us experience concretely the journey from death to new life. In that spirit, From the Grave was compiled to aid your conformity to Christ by addressing themes like:
- Christ s passion, death, and resurrection
- Mortification of the flesh
- Self-denial and cross-bearing
- New life in Christ
- Christian obedience and resurrection hope
Each day features a brief reading and one or more passages of Scripture for meditation. As you move through each day, may your heart and your will journey from the garden to the grave to thelight of day. Reflecting on the self-sacrificial work of Christ, may you offer your own life as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable, worshipful and pleasing, and with reverence and gratitude in your heart to God.
