Book Review. Absolutely Brilliant!
The book 40 Days. 40 Words. Easter Readings to Touch Your Heart by Ken Petersen and Randy Petersen helps readers find a deeper meaning behind the 40 days of fasting before Easter. It does this by bringing 40 keywords into the readers view…and heart.
Reading “40 Days. 40 Words. Easter Readings to Touch Your Heart” by Ken Petersen and Randy Petersen takes the 40 day focus off self, and places it back on Jesus. The authors explain, “In abstaining from a vice, we improve ourselves. But this understanding of abstaining at Lent has it all backward. In fact, as with many aspects of the Easter season, it’s not about us. It’s about Him. Jesus.”
Meditate on one focus word per day from the book “40 Days. 40 Words. Easter Readings to Touch Your Heart” by Ken Petersen and Randy Petersen. Learn and think about words such as ashes, temptation, penance, self-control, deny, conversion, maundy, and more. Each focus word includes a relevant Bible verse. These can also be helpful for Bible journaling. Or use the daily word for dinner conversations with your family each night. Pass the traditions into the next generation with a daily reading, then a family conversation at the evening table.
The devotional book 40 Days. 40 Words. Easter Readings to Touch Your Heart by Ken Petersen and Randy Petersen can be read anytime, but is specifically anchored to Easter with a Christian application. Highly recommend for new Believers, or anyone who wants a deeper understanding on the connection between the Bible and the traditional holiday celebration.
I can see myself buying 40 copies of this book! One for each of my ministry leaders. A Great gift for church volunteers. Once I started reading the book, I did not want to put it down. Its fantastic!
