Kerri Allen and Don McKim, editors
Introduction by Allan Boesak
After the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) adopted the Confession of Belhar to become part of the Book of Confessions in June 2016, consideration was given to what type of resource could introduce the Belhar Confession more fully to the denomination. It seemed that a book of devotions based on the Belhar Confession would be a blessing to the church as congregations and individual Presbyterians contemplated Scripture, the Belhar Confession, and the meanings that emerge as the Confession is studied phrase by phrase during the season of Lent. The devotions were written by a variety of Presbyterians, reflecting on a portion of the Confession in relation to Scripture texts that are associated with the Confession. The forty-seven devotions cover the days of Lent, plus Sundays. $12.95

About Witherspoon Press

Witherspoon Press, a publishing imprint of Congregational Ministries Publishing, was established in 1997 to help further the mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) by providing resources that nurture, affirm, challenge and celebrate the human spirit.

We take our name from John Witherspoon, one of the founders of the Presbyterian Church in America and moderator of its first General Assembly in 1789. In addition to his leadership in the Presbyterian Church, Witherspoon was also president of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University), a member of the New Jersey state legislature and the Continental Congress and the only member of the clergy to sign the Declaration of Independence. Like John Witherspoon, everything we do remains grounded in the wonderfully rich Presbyterian and Reformed tradition that has shaped so much of the life of our culture.
