Show synopsis "A Journey with John" is based around five reflective Bible studies on the passion narrative in John's Gospel. Each study is accompanied by thought-provoking questions, prayer starters and illustrations. This short book is designed to help the reader move on in their devotional life from the keeping of Lent to the celebration of Easter. It uses historical background, textual exegesis, imaginative reflection and topical application to build bridges between John's account of the passion of Jesus and the reader's own journey of faith. Many Christians meet in Lent groups or take a Lent book to read. A Journey with John seeks to take its readers on from Lent into Holy Week, and use that special time to strengthen their understanding of Jesus' passion and so also the joy of Easter. Holy Week is an ideal time to dig deeper into the heart of the gospel and let it bear more fully on our lives, but it has often only been "kept" in churches of a more Catholic tradition. Writing in a way which crosses barriers of churchmanship and holds to a lively but traditional faith, David Thomson opens up this opportunity to readers of all backgrounds in a new way. - Ideal for small group and individual use. - Can be used as the basis for a series or program by pastors. - Practical yet lively. - A thought-provoking guide for Lent. - A Bible study on the Passion narrative in John's Gospel especially for use in Holy Week.
