With a focus on the wilderness experience in which God fed the people with manna, Bowser offers daily thoughts centered on some kind of trial or test. This year, an original poem is part of the daily devotion for each Sunday in Lent.

“We will all endure a wilderness experience at some point in our lives, whether it is divinely appointed or self-imposed, as in the freely embraced discipline of Lent,” Bowser writes in the introduction. “Yet, however we get there, we are never alone and never without provision for the trek. God is always present, leading and feeding us along the way.”

The devotional is suitable for individual use and for congregations to provide to their members. Cost per booklet is $4 or $7.95 for large print. Order online at www.brethrenpress.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=8496 or call Brethren Press at 800-441-3712.
