Two of the most widely read and respected spiritual writers of the 20th century, Henri Nouwen and C.S. Lewis, are brought together in this Lenten daily devotional booklet. Nouwen and Lewis offer their deeply personal insights, understanding and pastoral sensitivity in this booklet that is an ideal accompaniment for a spiritually enriching Lenten season.
In the clearest of language and the simplest of prose, Nouwen and Lewis uncomplicate Christianity and God’s love for us in a way few other authors could ever do. These reflections are a most appropriate way to enter into the spirit of Lent.
Each day includes a brief line of Scripture, a reflection drawn from one of the many classic books by Nouwen and Lewis, and a short prayer. This booklet will help make your Lenten journey one to remember.
