The 2021 Lent Book takes the Lord’s Prayer as a basis for Lenten reflection. At a time of change, uncertainty and widespread anxiety, we need to discover again the freshness of our most familiar spiritual resources. Stephen Cherry’s Lent Book does exactly this by inviting the reader to immerse themselves in the most central, important and iconic of Christian prayers – the Lord’s Prayer, the Our Father. Mining the tradition for wisdom and insight, and finding inspiration in the theologians of the past such as St Paul, Gregory of Nyssa, John Calvin, but also more contemporary voices such as Evelyn Underhill, Simone Weil, and Michelle Obama, Thy Will Be Done presents the comforts and challenges of the prayer in 36 short chapters. This most accessible Lent Book, rich in anecdote as well as analysis, is daily bread for the spiritually hungry.
This is a book that accomplishes its aim with an understated wisdom. * Church Times *
