This Lenten devotional explores the down to earth journey towards Easter through the teachings of Jesus. Christ's parables were practical stories of real life. He taught on hillsides and did miracles with mud. His followers were the poor and lepers. His life was taken when he was beaten to a bloody pulp and crucified like some common criminal. He was placed in the very earth he made. And then...He came back down to earth. These 40 days of devotionals are designed to help you fall more deeply in love with the God that made you and wants you to have life here and into forever. The devotionals are supplemented with journal questions, prayer prompts and beautiful photographs by Anthony Thaxton.
