On the Way to the Cross: 40 Days with the Church Fathers

I used this devotional for my part of my Lenten experience this year (2014). It is not necessary for it to be relegated only to this period, but should be considered for anytime through the year as a wonderful tool for re-centering one’s soul. I found it very much effective in this regard.

I have long enjoyed the writing of Thomas Oden and particularly the Ancient Christian Devotional Series of which this devotional book, On the Way to the Cross, patterns itself.

Each daily reading begins with a confessional statement from the Book of Common Prayer. Following the daily confession is a Scripture reading and reflections from the Church Fathers concluding with closing prayers also from the early church fathers and the prayer books of the early church.

For those unfamiliar with the writings of the early church, this can serve as a wonderful and very accessible introduction. The language is easy to understand and each day’s devotional reading requires a minimal time investment.
