Thinking about Lent? Join the diocesan Lenten book study.
We'll be looking at Bishop Michael Marshall's, Lent with the Beloved Disciple.
About the book: As the only disciple to have stayed close to Jesus at every stage from the Last Supper to the Crucifixion at Calvary, this eagle-eyed eyewitness intentionally records certain subtle details and signs which, when perceived with the eyes of faith, indicate a deeper and far lasting significance.
Michael Marshall explores what these signs are and how, with prayerful reflection, they draw us ever more deeply into the personal, eternal and cosmic significance and awareness of all that Christ accomplished by his death and resurrection – the Paschal Mystery.
About the author: Bishop Michael Marshall has authored many books from his earliest days as Vicar of All Saints Margaret Street, London and subsequently when he was appointed Bishop of Woolwich at the age of 39. In 1984, he moved to the USA as the Founding Director of the Anglican Institute. In 1992, he was appointed as one of the Advisors to the Archbishops of York and Canterbury for the Decade of Evangelism.
