Lent is a great time to slow down and take time to think again about the events of the first Easter. This book helps us to do just that. After a typically clear and thoughtful introduction by Tim Chester, each day there is a treasure from a great Christian writer of the past. Each of these prayers, poems and mediations makes us slow down and take time as we get to grips with the richness of the language and the depth of thought, and allow these writers of old to bring us fresh insights into the wonders of the gospel.

We live in an age of superficiality and ‘chronological snobbery’, which tends to treat the past with disdain. This series of Lent readings is a wonderful antidote to the spirit of our age. From Gregory of Nazianzus to Catherine Parr and from George Herbert to Charles Spurgeon, we meet a galaxy of men and women whose lives were moulded by Scripture and lived out in fervent devotion to Christ. As you listen to these voices, your heart will blaze as each witness shows you Jesus. This book is highly recommended.

Author; Speaker

This collection of prayers from the past is a gift that stands out in a world of quick and casual words. Tim Chester has provided a profoundly beautiful way to help lead the church in prayer during the Lenten season. The prayers of these men and women are not only saturated with biblical truth; they are also shaped with imagination that awakens us and love for Jesus that pierces our hearts.

"Drew my heart to the heart of Christ"

Jesvin Jose, January 5th 2021

This book by Tim Chester is no ordinary book of prayers - it'll warm our hearts to Christ's love for us, but it'll also teach us how to pray! Yes, it is a collection of prayers mostly from the Puritans and other saints in the past, but every prayer will draw our hearts closer to Jesus. My heart was drawn to the heart of Christ as I meditated on these Christ-centered prayers.... continue reading

 

"great for every Christian"

James Schroeder, January 4th 2020

I found the perspective Christian saints throughout the church’s 2000 years of existence helpful in my own walk with Christ. With quotes from Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, John Owen, Ambrose, and more, it is bound to stir your affections. Every generation has its own emphasis and blind spots.... continue reading

 

"a focus on Christ’s sacrifice is always relevant"

Bethany Davidson, January 24th 2021

I would definitely encourage readers to not limit this book’s use to Easter. Even though Chester designed it for the season of Lent, this collection of daily readings can encourage and help a Christian at any time for the year.... continue reading

“Different perspectives from the past”

I've loved reading each day's devotional this Lent, hearing voices from the past most of whom are new to me, though I first started reading George Herbert's poetry many years ago as a teenager. The different perspectives on Christ's sacrifice have been really helpful, and the language is beautiful.
