    The Journey: With Jesus to Jerusalem and the Cross

    After an unforgettable three years, the charismatic teacher who called you and your brother James to follow him says, ‘Right, lets go to Jerusalem.’ It’s thrilling to be setting out on the next stage of the adventure. But life in the company of Jesus is not for the faint-hearted. Certainly there’s fun as you mess about with the other young disciples. But it’s pretty edgey too, not knowing who is going to turn up next and what might be expected of you. And as the days pass by, the huge demands on Jesus as he heals and teaches invoke both a strange tenderness and a growing dread of why exactly you are journeying to the holy city... Looking through the eyes of the disciple John, The Journey follows Luke’s chronology from Luke 9:51, as Jesus ‘set his face to go to Jerusalem’. Absorbing, exuberant and affective, it offers daily (weekday) readings for Lent, from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday, with a poem for each Saturday. It is suitable for use by individuals or groups.

    God is on the Cross: Reflections on Lent and Easter

    ‘This is my second Passiontide here. When people suggest in their letters ... that I’m “suffering” here, I reject the thought. It seems to me a profanation. These things musn’t be dramatized. I doubt very much whether I’m “suffering” any more than you, or most people, are suffering today. Of course, a great deal here is horrible, but where isn’t ? ... No, suffering must be something quite different, and have quite a different dimension, from what I’ve so far experienced. FROM A LETTER TO EBERHARD BETHGE FROM TEGEL PRISON, 9 MARCH 1944 These stirring words are among forty-seven devotions that will guide and inspire readers as they move thematically through the weeks of Lent and Easter, encountering themes of prayerful  reflection, self-denial, temptation, suffering, and the meaning of the cross. Passages from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s letters and sermons provide special encouragement as readers prepare themselves spiritually for Holy Week and Easter Sunday. Supplemented by an informative introduction to Bonhoeffer’s life and a Scripture passage for each day of the season, these daily devotions are moving reminders of the true gift of Christ on the cross.

    Barefoot Prayers: A Meditation a Day for Lent and Easter

    "Barefoot Prayers comes from someone with his feet firmly on the ground yet exposed to mystery and to God. These prayers are earthy, with a vulnerability and openness: vibrant with the humus of the earth and the breath of the Spirit." David Adam 'These are prayers with the all-too-rare quality of being freshly minted and imagined in a different register. They're evocative, playful and searching, and they demand a return visit.' John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford. 'In this book humility and grace come together to take us on a journey through Lent that will lead us closer to God. This is no easy journey, it is rooted in reality and honesty...There are moments of wonder and joy, times of challenge and struggle, and at the end a simple Amen.' Ruth Gee, President of the Methodist Conference.

    Welcoming the Way of the Cross: A Journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day

    In today's high-pressure, fast-paced culture, people crave space for rest and renewal, for restoration of both body and soul. Welcoming the Way of the Cross explores how creating this space can be part of a Lenten discipline and understood as 'hospitality' in its broadest sense - making space to be open to God, to ourselves, and to each other.   Selecting daily readings from across the Bible, as well as drawing on her own extensive experience as a retreat leader and tutor in Christian spirituality, Barbara Mosse shows both the blessings and the challenges that will inevitably emerge as we embark on this kind of journey.
