Editorial Reviews

Ashes To Glory is an attractively produced program that offers brief (two-and-a-half minute) devotions for each of the 40 days and seven Sundays of Lent (covering the period from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday). Beginning with a reflection on the metamorphosis of the butterfly as a symbol of God's transforming power, the program progresses through the season, illustrating various aspects of the religious journey through symbols and customs, poetry, and works of art and music, culminating in devotions specific to Holy Week. Providing a novel, simple framework for daily observance of Lent...- J. Reed

"Ashes to Glory" contains 47 brief meditations that are 2-3 minutes long, one for each day of Lent. A favorite song, poem, Scripture, tradition, character of the Passion story, or work of art that gives meaning to the season is the basis of the devotion. The daily Bible reading can be your choice from four translations. Not being familiar with the observances of the Lenten season, I found this Easter Devotional to be very educational as well as spiritually meaningful. But realizing that not all denominations agree with the practices of Lent, any church librarian considering adding this DVD to the collection should first check their Church Library's selection policy. For individuals who observe the yearly custom of Lent, or for those who have never, this DVD could help deepen their faith and observe Easter in a more meaningful way.
