This seasonal extract from the first new annual edition is designed to give new readers a taster of the high standard of spiritual and theological writing that has made Reflections so popular. It also provides attractively priced quality daily Bible reading notes for every day of the most holy season of the Christian year. Favourite contributors from the team of writers who made Reflections so popular offer inspiration for every day (excluding Sundays) of Lent and Holy Week. For each day there are full references and a quotation from the day's set of Scripture readings, challenging commentary on the readings and a collect.
