Review: Walk with Jesus: A Journey to the Cross and Beyond

6048939 Walk with Jesus: A Journey to the Cross and Beyond by Charles R. Swindoll
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"Walk with Jesus" leads churchgoers through the forty days of Lent with daily entries to prepare their hearts for Easter. (Must order in bundles of twenty-five)

It all began with the long awaited coming of Messiah, the person who would preside over the Jewish nation and bring peace and freedom to a people in need. But the Easter story, the Gospel story in the making, ends with a much larger conclusion: the possibility of eternal freedom for all who would believe.

In "Walk with Jesus," a forty day Lent devotional From Charles R. Swindoll, readers go on a compelling journey through the life and ministry of Jesus. This powerful booklet gives insights only a learned teacher could give while engaging the heart and mind only as a pastor can. Anyone wishing to be transformed and find a fresh encounter with God will find it daily through the pages of "Walk with Jesus."

Short, and brutally honest. A great wake up call, and reminder that as Christian's Christ's life and death should be more than just another story to us. Leading up to the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, this 40 day devotional takes a deeper look at scripture, and brings it to life by moving though it a few verses at a time, and emphasizing who Jesus really was, and what He calls us to be as His followers.
