Like many evangelicals who love the gospel, I had my doubts about Lent. It s true, Lent can seem like an empty ritual. But what Aaron Damiani came to find, and what he describes inside, is something else entirely. Something exceedingly good. The Good of Giving Up is an evangelical case for Lent and a guide to observing it. After getting a brief history of the season, you ll learn: How to observe 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 new growth. The Good of Giving Up will show you how, encouraging you to participate in what many know as a rich spiritual journey. "
