It Is Finished: A 40-Day Pilgrimage Back to the Cross


If you’re looking for a unique and fulfilling way to celebrate Lent, I highly recommend It Is Finished: A 40 Day Pilgrimage Back to the Cross. This book’s daily devotions allow us to build a closer relationship with our Lord. As I read through each day, I almost felt as if I were there reliving the moments as they happened. I also enjoyed the daily prayers that followed each of the readings. I plan to restart this book for Lent so that I can continue to build my bond with Jesus.

It Is Finished: A 40-Day Pilgrimage Back to the Cross” is a book written by Charles Martin that provides a unique and essential guide to understanding the power and significance of the cross throughout the Bible, from the book of Genesis to the present day.

Through forty days of captivating storytelling, the author takes you on a journey back to the cross, encouraging you to look at it from a different perspective each day and ask God to reveal to you:

  • What did Jesus mean when he said, It is finished as he was dying on the cross?

  • When did what Jesus finished at the cross begin?

  • How does Jesus' death 2,000 years ago relate to me today?

  • What is God offering at the cross that I often forget or take for granted?

  • What does God know about me that I don't realize?

The book aims to open your eyes and heart to the answer to the question that can change your life: ‘Lord, why me? Why did you endure the cross and despise the shame for me?’ The book is set to be published on February 6, 2024.

Lent this year is Wed, Feb 14, 2024 – Thu, Mar 28, 2024 and the release of this devo is timed with the 40 days of Lent. Be sure to look for it and strengthen your own bond.
