The 2024 Bloomsbury Lent Book invites you on a six-week journey in the company of the 'beloved disciple' as found in the narrative of the Gospel of St John.

As the only disciple to have stayed close to Jesus at every stage from the Last Supper to the Crucifixion at Calvary, this eagle-eyed eyewitness intentionally records certain subtle details and signs which, when perceived with the eyes of faith, indicate a deeper and far lasting significance.

Michael Marshall explores what these signs are and how, with prayerful reflection, they draw us ever more deeply into the personal, eternal and cosmic significance and awareness of all that Christ accomplished by his death and resurrection – the Paschal Mystery.

Ideal for both individual use and for small group study, Lent with the Beloved Disciple takes us into the heart of that Paschal Mystery, by which all things in heaven and earth are ultimately fulfilled in the risen and ascended Christ, who is 'all in all'.

Bishop Michael Marshall has authored many books from his earliest days as Vicar of All Saints Margaret Street, London and subsequently when he was appointed Bishop of Woolwich at the age of 39. In 1984 he moved to the USA as the Founding Director of the Anglican Institute. On returning to this country in 1992, he was appointed as one of the Advisors to the Archbishops of York and Canterbury for the Decade of Evangelism. Through his extensive travels he has become widely known as a preacher and lecturer and for his work in spiritual formation. As an accomplished pianist, he has performed with orchestras both in the USA as well as here in the UK.
