Format: Paperback
Martin Smith is a clear and thoughtful writer, and a wonderful guide for Christians looking for help in getting right with God. This book is a series of short essays. Each is accompanied by a a text for meditation, almost always from scripture. If you use this book seriously during Lent, you will be rewarded with a richer and deeper prayer life. Smith is an Episcopal monk, but his work is equally accessible to all Christians.

I have used this book for my Lenten devotions over a number of years. I discover something fresh and wonderful every time I read it. Fr. Smith's journey in and with the Holy Spirit is not an exercise in escaping from the world around us, but an invitation to become more aware of how the Reign of God is active here and now. Although geared towards Lent, the readings are well worth perusing any time of the year.

Format: Paperback
This is the second year I have used Martin Smith's book at Lent His profound insights into the psyche of persons and his practical applications to Christian living continue to deepen my own ability to "walk the walk" with Christ. His extraordinary spiritual insights, especially his explanation of the self as a group - the "selves of the self" - likening each of us to the demoniac that Jesus heals. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the self/selves that God loves. A book for all seasons.

This book helped my Lent to be very powerful and profound. I felt that it had been written just to answer my questions and to challenge me to grow in my spiritual life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a prayerful Lent.

This little book, with daily readings for Lent, is a spirit-booster! It sits by my bedside and gives each day a good beginning! Even though it was intended for Lent, I didn't hear about it until the Lenten season itself, and was delighted to discover that each day's readings would be a companion no matter what the season! It arrived promptly (thank you, Amazon) and in excellent condition.

This is one of the best spiritual books I have ever had the pleasure of reading.
This book was ordered to give to a friend as a gift.
I received my copy in 2001 and have had the wonderful experience of reading it, during Lent, every year since.
It is outstanding!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has been my constant companion in this season of Lent and I plan to read it every year from now on. Smith challenges the reader to contemplate a deeper level of acceptance of God and our connection to the Spirit in a way I have not read elsewhere. Smith's most striking point, which he makes again and again, is that each of us is not just part of the universe--we each contain the whole of the universe within us. And as such, God is constantly reaching out to us fully and in love because we all are, individually, the whole of his creation. But, no matter how spiritual you think you may be, many of us resist that love on a daily basis either out of ego or shame or general feelings of unworthiness. Smith's book takes us on a 40-day journey to seek out those pockets of resistance and break them down so we can fully receive what God has to offer us. This book is certainly a journey worth taking, and Smith is the right and gentle, compassionate one to guide us.
