The Gospel writers of the New Testament show Jesus spending 40 days in the wilderness, fasting, and being tempted by Satan. Following this pattern, Christians from many church traditions have marked the occasion of Jesus’ death and resurrection by a similar period of fasting known as Lent. The traditional calendar for Lent goes from Ash Wednesday to Easter, with exceptions for Sundays (typically a feast day). 40 Days to the Cross follows that format—40 devotionals spanning 46 days.
The season of Lent is one of anticipation; unlike Advent’s glorious culmination in the birth of Christ, Lent carries an element of mourning. Before we celebrate Easter and the joy of the Resurrection, the church commemorates the events leading to the suffering and death of Jesus Christ.
With 40 Days to the Cross, you’ll journey through the last days of Jesus’ ministry with readings from Mark’s Gospel. Accompanying each reading is a reflection from great Christian thinkers throughout the centuries—from Augustine and John Chrysostom to Dwight L. Moody and Charles H. Spurgeon. As an ebook available in the Logos and Vyrso formats, 40 Days to the Cross also allows you to journal at the end of each devotional entry.
40 Days to the Cross contains:
- Daily confessions from the Psalms
- Daily readings from the Gospel of Mark
- Curated writings from church fathers and theologians like Iranaeus, John Chrysostom, and John Newton
- Devotional reflection questions
- Space for journaling responses
Use this daily devotional to jump-start your personal devotions during the Lenten season.
