Forty Days in the Wilderness

Forty Days in the Wilderness
This book will take you on a journey of discovery—about Jesus and about you.

There are probably dozens of Lent books that take Jesus in the wilderness as their starting point, but this one doesn’t preach or seek to tell people what to think or believe. Rather, the reader is cleverly drawn into the story—feeling Jesus’ emotions, pain, hunger and thirst, self-doubts and moments of clear vision. The result is a new understanding of Jesus in the desert and of the reader’s own wilderness moments. It offers readers personal questions to ponder on their own Lenten journey.

"I like the warmth and creativity and simplicity of this. It seems to me as if many writers try to do complex things with the 6 weeks of Lent—a week about this, a section about that. This, in contrast, takes us and leads us on a journey through the desert—that really works for me.” — Rev Joss Walker, Anglican priest, Maidstone, England

“While the structure is simple, I appreciate that the author is actually doing something very complex here. Using the method of imagining Jesus' thoughts and experience, he uses a familiar story to edge us into an unfamiliar consideration of the many inner struggles and experiences which shape the way we view and respond to life. It deceives us into surprisingly deep reflection. I also think the quotations are outstanding, and sum up beautifully the heart of each day's challenge. It is innovative & thought-provoking; creative and excellent.” — Rev Dr John Walker, diocese of Canterbury, UK

This accessible short Lent book changes our perceptions of Jesus’ ministry. We go from seeing Jesus through our own eyes to seeing our selves through Jesus eyes. It leaves us wanting to know and learn so much more.” — Penny Glover, Christian bookseller, Manchester UK
