Item description for Into The Desert: Reflections For Lent by George Lacey...
Overview A series of reflections based largely on the gospel for each of the days of Lent, useful for homilies or personal devotion.
Publishers Description Lent is a time when Christians go into the desert with Jesus. As a place, the desert is silent and empty--and strangely appealing. But it is also arid, with little to offer in the way of nourishment. To survive there spiritually we must know who we are and come to rely on our foundational relationship with God. We must trust that God will sustain us. According to George Lacey, the desert is a place where we can get some things (such as temptations) out of the way, and deepen our prayer, so that we will better be able to follow the path out of the desert to the place where it takes us. This book is a series of reflections the days of lent, based on the daily scripture readings. Homilists may find it useful. Ordinary Christians will certainly welcome it as a way to go into the desert of lent deliberately and be strengthened by the experience. These quiet meditations lead us step-by-step through the days and weeks, the desiccated landscape of lent, to a place of water and light. Along with prayer, it is nourishment enough.

Reviews - What do customers think about Into The Desert: Reflections For Lent?
Useful Tool during Lent Jul 22, 2008
I purchased this book near the beginning of Lent this year. I found it to be very useful as I did my daily readings. From what I remember though, the book is written for a certain year of the readings, possibly A. So if you are reading from the liturgical years B or C, the readings might not make as much sense. Overall though, it was a nice addition to my personal Lenten resources.
