Overview
Why must we endure times of waiting? In the night, we wait for the morning. In loneliness, toil, or sickness, we wait for relief. Jesus's forty-day fast was a time of waiting, and in that time, He became vulnerable and needy just like we are. 40 Days with Jesus takes us on a daily imaginative journey through our fasting wilderness of Lent and leads us back home to resurrection life and is perfect for individual meditations or group discussions. The reflection questions that follow each daily devotional help to link spiritual mysteries to ordinary living.
Description
Why must we endure times of waiting? In the night, we wait for the morning. In loneliness, toil, or sickness, we wait for relief. Jesus's forty-day fast was a time of waiting, and in that time, He became vulnerable and needy just like we are. God became a person for a reason, so we can imitate and learn to be like Him – not as clones, but as beloved daughters and sons. As we fast during Lent, 40 Days with Jesus takes us on a daily imaginative journey through our fasting wilderness of Lent and leads us back home to resurrection life. 40 Days with Jesus is perfect for individual meditations or group discussions. The reflection questions that follow each daily devotional help to link spiritual mysteries to ordinary living. 40 Days with Jesus is the perfect companion for the Lenten fast, for any Christian tradition, and helps a reader better understand personal suffering and the many theodicies in life. After experiencing the 40 Days with Jesus, a reader will find strength and grow in appreciation for the rewards that follow a season of waiting on God.
About the author
William Urban has a passion for retelling biblical stories from a bystander's point of view. "I like to imagine what the people and characters on the sidelines experienced when the events that inspired Scripture happened. It helps me understand God in a new light." "The vision for my writing is to help people fall more deeply in love with God. As a person's connection with God grows, their life accelerates in purpose, meaning, and fulfillment." William is an inspired storyteller who delights in writing about the adventure of encountering God in ordinary life. William's writing celebrates each person's dignity as a child of God and seeks to envision the mystery of how each of us finds our place within the never-ending story of Jesus. William holds a Master of Arts in biblical studies from Wheaton College, is the author of several books, and speaks and presents at events in the church and the marketplace. He loves the outdoors, is a devoted husband, and is the proud dad of three sons.
