Item description for Small Surrenders: A Lenten Journey by Emilie Griffin...

A guide to Lent that invites spiritual observance and a willingness to be transformed by grace. Lent is a time of year when Christians of all backgrounds open themselves to a deeper relationship with God through prayer, fasting, spiritual reading, and other disciplines. Small Surrenders provides a perfect daily guide to this holy season, with forty-seven meditations for Lenten weekdays, Sundays and Easter Sunday. Emilie Griffin uses brief, provocative quotations from ancient and modern sources as starting-points for her warm, conversational meditations, which focus on deepening the spiritual life. Readers will gain new insights on various aspects of Lent - the "small surrenders" we make throughout the season - including the attitudes we should bring to Lent, our relationship to Jesus Christ during these days, the disciplines we may adopt, and how to maintain commitment over such an extended time. Major sources for reflection are Jesus' time in the wilderness, as well as the final week of Lent when we observe his passion, death, and resurrection. Griffin also provides a brief history of Lent and considers the value of Lenten practice in contemporary life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Small Surrenders: A Lenten Journey?

Stellar - like all of Griffin's writings  Oct 22, 2008
I read this as my Lenten spiritual reading this year, and it was brilliant. One day when the reading was particularly on point for my experience, I came to my keyboard and typed out a response to Emilie Griffin herself - found her email address online. The act of writing out my response was beautiful in itself, and I always consider something that stimulates my thought enough to have to write about it to be a good read! But the bonus was that I got an email response from Emilie who, despite her thick resume, is a wonderful, personable woman. This book took me full circle from reading, to meditating on scripture, to response, to community. It doesn't get any better than that!
