Dust and Glory is a thought-provoking collection of daily Bible readings, from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day.
During Lent, the Church calls us to a special period of prayer, self-examination and teaching. And this book has been written to accompany you through that period, a time of turning from winter to spring, from death to life.
The collection of readings ranges across the whole business of living and believing, where the questions are as important as the answers, and may call us to deep heart-searching. The goal is always to draw us to authentic faith. A way of living and believing that is real and vulnerable, strong in knowing its limits, rooted in joy and wonder, blessed with the healing and merciful presence of God. Such faith acknowledges both the dust of our mortality and the glory that keeps breaking in with unexpected life, hope and new beginnings.
