This book aims to help us reflect on God, Jesus and Christian discipleship during Lent, Holy Week and Easter. In what way is Jesus good news to each of us, personally? What gives real meaning to the well-worn words 'good news'? Straight-talking short reflections and prayers based on Mark's "Gospel" lead you though 48 days of Lent to Easter on a journey of real discovery. The author's pugnacious, pithy and vulnerably honest view of the key themes in Mark's "Gospel" will reveal the familiar through refreshed eyes. Nick Baines aims to release us from shallow readings of scripture and looks at why Jesus mixes 'good news' with something that sounds as miserable as 'repentance'. He opens up new and liberating perspectives on the love of God. This book also includes: 48 daily reflections from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day; 48 daily prayers; and 7 weekly sections on personal reflection and group discussion.
