This excellent Lent book both provides material for prayer and thought each day of Lent, but also provides spiritual advice in matters such as how to pray, finding direction and how to use the books in groups or alone. A rewarding book and very affordable too.

This is one of my all time favourite spiritual journeys.My edition(1993) is subtitled "A journey through Lent for bruised pilgrims". I have recently re-visited it for the first time in 4 or 5 years & have been reminded of exactly how good this is. My first copy fell apart, it was so used.
The first 59 pages are an introduction with the following chapter headings:
Ways of using this book, Why Lent?, Where is our destination?-the meaning of penance, On some ways of praying, On finding direction through prayer.
Although an introduction, I find this at least as important as the main part of the book.
There is a study for each day of Lent(although it could be read at any time of the year) which is done in such a way that you can take 2 minutes, 15 minutes, or considerably longer over it.
Gerard Hughes style is both gentle and challenging, all seasoned with a gentle humour ("Having reached the Promised Land, in spite of all their grumbles & rebellion, the Jewish people realized that life, even with lots of milk and honey, and no doubt an abundance of leeks cucumbers and garlic,too, could still be nasty, brutish and short, and that their deliverance from Egypt was only part of God`s promise, not its fulfilment").
He takes us on a journey from our own personal slavery to our own personal promised land, preparing us for the continuing journey towards fulfilment by letting God be God to us and through us. An excellent book.

Beautifully written, and helpful to all who are seeking a prayer life and so not know how to start. It caters for the minimum time one feels that one can spend in prayer, and builds up gently and never is one felt that it cannot be done. I bought several to give to friends.

Wanted a book to read during Lent (although it can be used any time). Was helpful in answering those questions you want to ask the vicar but too shy!! It contains a thought provoking passage and prayer for every day. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend.
