Description

"Like many evangelicals who love the gospel, I had my doubts about Lent."

It's true, Lent can often seem like an empty ritual. But what Aaron Damiani came to find, and what he describes inside, is something else entirely. Something exceedingly good.

In The Good of Giving Up, Anglican pastor Aaron Damiani (who comes from a low-church background) explains the season of Lent, defends it theologically, and guides you in its practice. You'll learn:

  • The history and purpose of Lent
  • How to practice it with proper motivation
  • Ways it can reform your habits and convictions
  • How to lead others through it, whether in the home or church

Lent has been described as a "springtime for the soul," a season of clearing to make room for growth. The Good of Giving Up will show you why, encouraging you to participate in what many know as a rich spiritual journey.

"When I was finally ready to take the plunge, I learned that observing Lent is not a forced march of works-righteousness. But it was good medicine for [my soul], for the painful split between what I knew about God and what I experienced of Him."
