Reform, February 2020. Review by Jenny Mills

Journeying through Lent is the work of five writers: Stephen Cottrell, the incoming Archbishop of York; Helen Julian, a Franciscan sister; Tony Horsfall, a spiritual retreat leader and trainer; the late Rachel Boulding, who was Deputy Editor of Church Times; and the late Brother Ramon, who was a Franciscan friar. The themes of these writers’ contributions are, according to Sally Welch, the book’s editor, ‘some of the most important elements of our faith’: feasting and fasting, the Beatitudes, the wisdom of Christ, the love poem of 1 Corinthians 13 and Holy Week. The book is a small one, with the text and reflection taking up no more than two pages each day. At the end of each week’s reflections there is a page of questions for group study.

Church Times 17.01.20. Philip Welsh's Lent book round up 2020

Journeying through Lent provides reflections by five ‘old friends of the Bible Reading Fellowship’ on short Bible passages under the themes: feasting and fasting, the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus’s wisdom in Luke, 1 Corinthians 13, and Holy Week.

The disparity of themes and the fact that two of the contributors have died — one of them two decades ago — suggest that we have here an ingenious repurposing of material that has been used elsewhere, which might explain occasional overlaps: the late Rachel Boulding and Stephen Cottrell both write on the Lord’s Prayer and on the lilies of the field, albeit in different versions. But the result is an attractive and straightforward popular resource, which also includes good questions on one of each week’s readings for those who are meeting for group study.
