ABOUT THE BOOK
The 50 devotional readings in this book explore the intrigue, tragedy and excitement of Calvary and Pentecost—two weekend that brought profound change to the world. The first was marked by Jesus’ death and resurrection, the next by the Holy Spirit’s presence and anointing. The climax and transitions represented by the events of these weekends—and the 50 days between—transformed the biblical narrative, reframed God’s involvement with us, gave birth to the church and released fresh opportunities for us to experience Him. These 50 one-page-spread readings will inspire you in your relationship with God and empower you for ministry. Calvary prepared the way for Pentecost—and for us.
Calvary to Pentecost is perfect for individual study, and a great discussion resource for small groups, churches and mission agencies—and a great gift idea to intentionally share the good news of Jesus with friends and neighbours, and to cultivate new households-of-faiths and movements of God’s Spirit—to begin with the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and progress through the story to Pentecost and the coming of the Holy Spirit, the spark that ignited the early church.
