Travel through a time of reflection, discipline, and encouragement with daily opportunities for discovering where modern Christians fit within the Lenten story.
This is excellent Lenten reading. Helen Julian gives you an insight into the lives of seven spiritual people, some of whom I knew a little about and some who were completely unknown to me. She links their thoughts with the progress of Lent and I found it so engrossing that I read two chapters a day instead of the one to take me through Lent. At the end of each section she gives a chapter on “Performance” with helpful hints to put into practice some of the ideas that we have read about in the life of the “companion”. I will definitely be dipping into some of the further reading on some of the companions.
