Some years we approach our Lenten disciplines with a sense of enthusiasm; we're ready for the challenge of the desert; we know we will emerge stronger for our time spent thirsting, climbing, and stepping forward in faith. In other years, we may look at Lent with wary eyes, all too familiar with the weight of our faults, and daunted by the bright empty heat into which we must carry them, until we find Jesus, to whom they may be surrendered. Whether you are anticipating Lent as an adventure to be embraced or as a scorching sojourn made in heat and light, Not by Bread Alone is the perfectly balanced Lenten companion for your daily contemplation.
