9780857214973: The Wilderness Within You: A Lenten Journey With Jesus, Deep In Conversation

Jesus said that his burden was light, but it doesn't always feel that way. For example, what does it mean to 'take up your cross'? How figurative is the language Jesus is using? Or, 'Those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples,' What does Jesus mean? Or, 'I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.' Does this mean unless I follow Jesus, I am cut adrift in this world, lost and without hope? But I cannot follow Jesus without being crucified ...Following Jesus does not seem as simple as preachers sometimes suggest. So Pen sets out into the wilderness to look for him. 'I have one big question that almost hurts in my heart,' she says, 'because I care about the answer so much. I want to ask him, "Jesus, what do you think of me?"'

Review:

"Imaginative, original, fresh and fast-paced: these are not words often associated with devotional books, least of all in the season of Lent. But they can all be applied to Pen Wilcock. She approaches the spiritual journey like a jungle explorer, and documents it with the sparkling prose of a good travel writer. Wilcock trades doctrine for delight and religion for relationship in a narrative peppered with the kinds of insights that only come when the imagination is engaged." -- Gerard Kelly 'This would be a good book for conversation starters for small group work as it does tackle some current issues.' -- Katie Smith Reflections "If you are looking for something different for Lent, this could be the book for you." The Reader
