40 Days of Decrease- Book Review

We ache deep within to meaningfully honor Christ's resurrection. Yet, in practice, this focal point in the liturgical calendar is often a celebration of a public holiday more than it is of humanity's hope.

40 Days of Decrease invites readers to walk with Jesus through holy decrease of less and loss that led Him cross-ward and beyond. Each day offers meaningful consideration of Jesus' journey through reading and reflection and then issues a challenging daily fast.

Written by Alicia Britt Chole this book has deepened my experience with Jesus and opened my eyes to the TRUE meaning of Passover, Easter, and beyond. This book should be saved in your memory to purchase before Easter next year. You will be transformed and will draw closer to the Lord during the journey towards the Cross.

I can't express to you how wonderful this Easter (LENT) devotional is. As a person who has never practiced lent but was in search to make Easter more about Jesus and less about food, bunnies, and candy this book did that for me.

It also showed me views from the disciples point and even the accusers. Each day is a perfect length.  It opens up with a snippet leading to the cross starting at the journey to Jerusalem all the way to the tomb. There is a challenge, and a encouragement of daily fasting (not in the way you think either), and scripture reading. It also shares snippets about what lent means, how it was started, is it something required, and the myths of it as well.

This by far has been a top book that I have read so far this year.
