New Books for the Lenten Season

February 1, 2017

Two new resources for Lent are now available from Westminster John Knox Press. A Way other than Our Own by Walter Brueggemann and The Sign and the Sacrifice by Rowan Williams provide a fresh perspective for the season, allowing you to reflect and connect in a new way.

Despite our culture of self-indulgence, we are called to walk an alternative path-one of humility, justice, and peace. In A Way other than Our Own, Walter Brueggemann's thought-provoking reflections for the season of Lent invite us to consider the challenging, beautiful life that comes with walking the way of grace.

Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury, presents the Gospel accounts of Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection as viewed through the eyes of those who witnessed them. The Sign and the Sacrifice explores the meaning of the cross and the significance of Christ's resurrection, discussing what these events meant to Jesus' followers in the early years and what they can say to us today.

A Way other than Our Own and The Sign and the Sacrifice are available for purchase through Westminster John Knox Press and other major retailers.
