4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 3 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lent is for Loving (Paperback)
The only reason that I have not given this book 5 stars is that it is too short! We are not yet halfway through Lent and I have finished it. Actually that's not accurate - I have returned to the beginning to read it again.
The other negative for me was that it is not set out with a daily plan to help the reader through Lent in an ordered manner - but this says less about the book than my own preferences.
Shela Cassidy is no theologian. But she writes from a lifetime of experience from hospital, the hospice, the torture chambers of Chile, the convent (for a short while) and now from retirement in Plymouth. Her writing is pithy, down to earth, refreshing and practical. Add in that it is challenging and you have a great read for Lent (or any other time).
One word of caution. The author confesses right at the beginning that she does not "Keep Lent" in a traditional way and so the book is quite different from some others I have used. To me this was very refreshing - indeed I'd say that this is the most helpful book for Lent that I have used.
