Reviews - What do customers think about A Season for the Spirit: Readings for the Days of Lent?
Profoundly spiritual and practical Christianity Mar 13, 2002
This is the second year I have used Martin Smith's book at Lent His profound insights into the psyche of persons and his practical applications to Christian living continue to deepen my own ability to "walk the walk" with Christ. His extraordinary spiritual insights, especially his explanation of the self as a group - the "selves of the self" - likening each of us to the demoniac that Jesus heals. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the self/selves that God loves. A book for all seasons.
Martin L. Smith is a blessing! Oct 19, 2001
This book helped my Lent to be very powerful and profound. I felt that it had been written just to answer my questions and to challenge me to grow in my spiritual life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a prayerful Lent.
Deeply spiritual yet completely oriented to real life Mar 18, 1999
I have used this book for my Lenten devotions over a number of years. I discover something fresh and wonderful every time I read it. Fr. Smith's journey in and with the Holy Spirit is not an exercise in escaping from the world around us, but an invitation to become more aware of how the Reign of God is active here and now. Although geared towards Lent, the readings are well worth perusing any time of the year.
Meditations for Lent that will deepen your prayer life Mar 4, 1999

Each is accompanied by a a text for meditation, almost always from scripture. If you use this book seriously during Lent, you will be rewarded with a richer and deeper prayer life.
