New Every Morning
daily reflections from Upper Room Books
New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Reaching Toward Easter
Devotions for Lent
• November 2011
eBook (Available in ePub or Kindle)
Derek Maul beckons you to join him on a devotional pilgrimage through Lent. Imagine yourself sitting at the table with Jesus and his disciples.
Walk with Jesus on the dusty path from Bethany to Jerusalem. Watch him closely and listen to his words of grace, hope, and challenge as he moves purposefully toward the Cross.
Reaching Toward Easter features 49 daily devotions that include in-depth Bible study, personal stories, and prayers.
Maul hopes that you will arrive at Holy Week refreshed rather than tired, inspired rather than discouraged, reflective rather than overwhelmed.
By the time you reach Easter, your pilgrimage will have prepared you to live as an "Eighth Day Believer"—a true follower of Jesus.
- 8-week study for individuals or groups
- Includes a Leader's Guide

The daily devotions are filled with hope and with an excellent mix of personal stories and in-depth exploration of the scriptures. Each day is a comfortable life lesson but also includes probing questions that guide the reader to the next step—a step closer to the risen Christ.
