From Sacrifice to Celebration uses contemporary examples to bring alive the journey from Lent to Easter. Each chapter is based on a Gospel text about a biblical character's journey from boredom to bonding. You'll meet Nicodemus, the Samaritan woman, a blind man, and the prodigal son, all who find freedom and renewal by forming the same spiritual bond with Christ that He had formed with God. A prayer and questions for reflection and study are found at the end of each chapter. Renew your relationship with God during this Lenten season as you explore the issues of power, discipline, temptation, and the "ego trap."
