Covenanters contributed many of the reflections to the new Lenten daily devotional Come Back to Jesus, which was edited by Chris Gehrz, co-author of The Pietist Option.
The reflections are based on lectionary texts but also inspired by the book, which Gehrz, a professor of history at Bethel University, wrote with Mark Pattie, pastor of Salem Covenant Church in New Brighton, Minnesota.
Gehrz said he wanted to offer the devotional “as a continuing reflection on The Pietist Option, revisiting that book’s themes via spiritual disciplines that help Christians turn from the sin that clings so closely and run towards the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.”
The devotional is free and available for download. The lower-resolution version (1 MB) should work well for tablets and smaller devices. There also is a higher-resolution option (3 MB) for people interested in printing a hard copy.
Gehrz’s article “A Slice of Pietism” was featured in the September/October 2017 issue of the Covenant Companion.
