Each two page spread in this booklet begins with a reflection on a theme followed by a "Code Word" and brief explanation for the reader to ponder, a "Passion Proclamation", which is a few verses from the Bible, and a short prayer. The book contains 40 sections, for each of the days of Lent, plus readings for Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday, an introduction, and a epilogue.
I like this book. The devotionals are short, but powerful, and I appreciate the suggestion of a "Code Word" to keep the lesson in mind all day. The size of the book, at around 4 by 6 inches, is perfect to tuck into a purse.
I was planning on using this book with our family for our after supper devotions during Lent, and I probably will do that, but the addition of the code word makes this book more appropriate for morning reading, so just keep that in mind if you are an evening devo person.
All proceeds from the book go to support Mission:Dignity, a fund that supports retired ministers who are living near the poverty level.
If you're looking for an easy to read devotional to add a little more meaning to your Lenten season, The Easter Code is a good choice.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
