Dean John Mann’s Lent with Saint John’s Gospel is a spiritual delight. Not intended as a commentary but rather as a series of brief reflections on selected individual verses from the Gospel (one for each day of Lent), here is depth, intelligence, compassion and insight in abundance, as indeed we would anticipate from the pen of Dean Mann. These reflections can be thoroughly commended as an invaluable backcloth to a thoughtful and prayerful Lent. – Archbishop Richard Clarke
This book is the result of a process initiated by the Church of Ireland Literature Committee in 2012 which issued an open call for authors to produce a Lent book with the potential to be both an aid to personal devotion and also a resource for group discussion during the penitential season. Lent with St John’s Gospel fulfils this aim with daily reflections also arranged in weekly sections for group discussion in parishes or homes.
