The Long Road To Heaven

A Lent Course based on the film 'The Way'

by Tim Heaton


Price: £7.99
Publisher:Circle Books imprint of John Hunt Publishing Ltd
Published:November 2013
Another Lent course based around a film - and that's no bad thing at all - in fact in these days of media attraction it's a positive boon in encouraging some to attend. This time the film is one directed by Emilio Estevez, that stars Martin Sheen and is about a journey through bereavement and along the pilgrimage route of the Way of St James. It is a brilliant and emotional film and this book makes a good, well considered use of it to open up discussion on the issue of salvation. In many ways the book, though brilliantly set up and appropriate for Lent, would work at any time for an in-depth group study.

The course is set out with real weight to it, the sessions well timed, and containing intelligent discussion questions along with good endings in a series of reflections and contemplations that gently round off each one.

A very welcome addition to the Lent courses out there.
