A superb book for Lent,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gospel in the Willows - Forty Meditations for the Days of Lent (Kindle Edition)
What a superb book for Lent! This beats most of the other tired old stuff hands down! Forget about revered clerics and Archbishop's selections which I never find satisfy and nourish our faith. This little book is a treasure and has great depth. I've got the Kindle edition and read a section a day commuting on the train.... delightful. Each section has a short extract from Mole and Raty's exploits, followed by a "parallel" extract from the Gospels. Then a Meditation section in which the author- oh so thoughtfully- relates the Wind in the Willows to the Gospel - and then relates both to the reader (or in my case Reader).
Absoloutely first class- by far and away the best Lent read I've had ... well ever!
