"[A] book of daily devotions for Lent by George Morrison with weekly group studies by Doug Hodgkinson".
"In the summer of 1983 a rare privilege comes to Canada and the Canadian churches. The Sixth Assembly of the World Council of Churches will convene in Vancouver. Its theme will be 'Jesus Christ - The Life of the World'. Delegates from every corner of the world have contributed to shaping its agenda. Many of those delegates will acclimatize to the Canadian scene by coming to stay in selected communities and homes, to savour our way of life for a few days before the Assembly. A broader-based preparation for delegates, however, is a Bible study program prepared in Geneva on the Assembly theme, subtitled 'Images of Life'. This Lenten Study is a parallel program, prepared to help Canadians prepare within our own cultural context for the impact of the WCC gathering". -- Intro., p. .
