Resource of the Month: At the Cross Cover to Cover Lent Bible Study

Cover to Cover Lent: At the Cross

NEW for Lent 2017

Reflect on the crucifixion of Jesus in a new way – by considering the perspectives of those who witnessed it themselves.

Each of these six Bible study sessions includes a devised monologue of someone whom the Gospels tell us was present at the cross – from the criminal crucified beside Christ, to Mary and the Roman centurion.

You and your small group can discover a creative approach to exploring these momentous passages of the Bible and be encouraged by looking afresh at the world-changing impact of what was achieved through the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Author Abby Guinness writes in her introduction to this Bible study:

‘Together, in these sessions, we’ll spend some time thinking about six people who witnessed the crucifixion. They were real people with thoughts, experiences and responses like ours. My background is in theatre and I have a love of thinking about things dramatically. I naturally consider human nature and personal stories to help me understand and explore the Scriptures. I would love it if you would enter into that with me… and I pray they will help you find fresh perspective on your own interpretation of the biblical text.’
