Dust & Glory

Daily Bible Readings From Ash Wednesday to Easter Day

by David Rubcorn


Price: £7.99
Publisher:BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship)
Published:November 2015

Dust & Glory takes a wide ranging journey through the bible in these 40 Lenten contemplations, and on that journey we really look at a wide range of questions that life puts before us and yet sometimes we don't stop to ponder on.

The format of the book starts with a lovely short bible passage (short enough to be used as a lectio divina even for a busy person) and then a contemplation I'd call it rather than a commentary on the passage that looks at its context in our lives as much as its meaning then, and rounds out with either a one line prayer, a  for reflection , or both! My favourite 'for reflection' consisted of... 'Yes!'

There is enough thought in these daily readings to last a day, but they can take only a couple of minutes to read if your life is very pressing on the time front... A very handy lent book.
