In this six-week adult study, "An Acceptable Fast: An Adult Lenten Study," Old Testament scholar and teacher Patricia Tull begins each session by locating the biblical verses in their original context and then exploring a key Lenten theme related to the text. Themes include: voice gratitude, take the long view, choose well, accept responsibility, welcome the future and trust God in times of conflict. Each session ends with a meditation on how the text speaks to our modern situation.
A leader's guide accompanies each handout and assists a facilitator in leading a 45-minute class utilizing the week's handout. A take-home question for reflection is also provided each week for participants' home Lenten meditation.
This study explores the Old Testament readings for lectionary year C, although the themes explored through these scriptures are appropriate to address at any time during the Christian life.

Patricia K. Tull is Professor Emerita of Old Testament at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. She is the author or editor of several books, including Esther and Ruth in the Interpretation Bible Studies series and the 2001-02 Horizons Bible Study, Esther's Feast: A Study of the Book of Esther. An ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), she also writes a regular column on environmentalism for WorkingPreacher.org.
