Celebrate Eastertide with Paula,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Risen Existence: The Spirit of Easter (Paperback)
That's my recommendation......
Others have pointed out the focus of the Church on Lent and the neglect of the 50 days of Eastertide; the elevation of the Cross with the resultant minimisation of the importance of the Resurrection, Ascension and Giving of the Spirit.
Having previously used "traditional" books through Lent I used Lent this year to look more closely at the meaning of Easter and was not disappointed to have Paula Gooder as a guide.
If Christianity is true it is about so much more than how we get to heaven - this book focuses the mind on to being changed and living life in all it's fullness; I suspect most of us, most of the time fall well short of that - Paula Gooder helps the reader have a larger vision of what is possible for ordinary people in the light of the extraordinary events of the first Easter.
The book is so good that I will be going back to page one and re-reading it over the next 50 days.
