Our Covenant with God: A Bible Study for Lent and Other Seasons

This Lenten Bible study is one way The Episcopal Church has chosen to fulfill the mandate of the 73rd General Convention for “the exploration and study of restorative justice for our nation’s criminal justice system.” Since restorative justice is rooted in primary biblical themes of Jubilee economics, Shalom justice, Sermon on the Mount ethics, and the vision and ultimate reality of God’s reconciliation and restoration of all things, persons, and peoples to God, self and to one another, the Church’s Office of Prison Ministry offers this series of readings, prayers, and reflections as a Bible study. We believe that it is useful at any time in the Christian year, but we feel that it is particularly appropriate for Lent.
