Dienst am Wort -
In 55 devotions dedicated to the body, mind and soul Max Koranyi conveys a modern feel for the Passiontide, based on Biblical texts, theological considerations and pastoral stimuli.
The seven weeks between Ash Wednesday and Easter Day are being celebrated by ever more people who use the ritual as a way to contemplate life, to change their habits and to reflect on spiritual matters. Max Koranyi provides five fasting devotions each on eleven themes taken from Biblical texts concerning eating, angels, healing as well as cardinal sins and cardinal virtues. These devotionals can help to shape the Passiontide as a modern, everyday approach to turning one´s life around, to enriching body, mind and soul.
