This book is broken into 40 different chapters that offer short reflections on Lent. Fr. Hopko of blessed memory excels at breaking down the powerful imagery and importance of Lent for laity and non-laity alike.

Personally, I chose to read this as a Lenten devotional with one chapter per day. This worked really well for me as I was able to take my time to reflect on the message of each self-contained chapter.

I will definitely be making this a regular part of my Lenten journey each year.

I am re-reading this for a Lenten activity that our whole church is doing. Hopko's daily essays really hit home and make you think about the meaning of Lent and what Jesus did for us. Highly recommended!
