There was a cold snap this week. Despite the cold, the sun is out later in the evening, reminding me that the winter is not so long. Have you started thinking about Easter yet? What will you be doing to mark Christ’s resurrection this year? How will you make it holy? How will you deepen your relationship with Christ?
I had the opportunity to read Walk in Her Sandals, a cross between an Easter devotional and historical fiction, edited by Kelly Wahlquist. I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.
It’s not a lengthy commitment like many Lenten devotionals. It begins on Palm Sunday, intensifies on the Easter weekend, and ends on Pentecost. When I say it’s not long I don’t mean to imply that it’s light reading. This devotional delves deeply and I’m sure that you could spend several Easters exploring all the angles in this book.
Each part includes a fictional story about the events leading up to and following the Saviour’s death and resurrection told through the eyes of women. The stories are not just added colour for your Bible study. You’ll be drawn into the action by the warmth of the characters and the narrator’s honest insights into their relatable lives. The stories create a wonderful focal point as you read, piquing your curiosity and personalising the Easter story.
Before and after each story you are invited to contemplate the meaning of Easter through the lens of feminine gifts. In addition to the stories, each part offers Bible study, a meditation on women’s gifts, and guidance for working with these ideas in our lives.
It’s bursting with inciteful, loving, interesting content! It even has discussion questions that you can use for your group study or in your prayer journal.
I plan to start my second reading of Walk in Her Sandals this Palm Sunday. Get your copy from Christianbook.com today.
