Lead Us Not Into Temptation
A Daily Study in Loyalty for Ash Wednesday to Holy Thursday
Martin Shannon, CJ
A daily devotional/study for Lent on the subject and the experience of temptation. Daily reflections on the hard school of temptation, based on Scriptures, inspired by the Lenten experience of a Benedictine monastic community. Each day’s reflection includes a quotation taken from two works of the German pastor and theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906–1945): a series of lectures given on the creation and fall of Adam and Eve; and a six-day Bible study on the theme of temptation, given by Bonhoeffer during a retreat with former students of his “underground” seminary in Nazi Germany.
