    Comings and Goings : Retracing the Christmas story through place and time

    ,
    Life involves many 'comings and goings', as we make our way along the path of faith day by day, guided by God's Holy Spirit. This book of readings for Advent and Christmas invites us to make a journey through time, from the end to the very beginning of all things. The daily reflections work backwards from the traditional Advent focus of the 'Four Last Things'- death, judgement, heaven and hell - via Jesus' life, death and resurrection, to come at last to the incarnation and the events commemorated at Christmas itself. In the following days, the focus turns to Christ as the Word of God, present at the dawn of creation. Along the way, we 'visit' some of the actual Holy Land sites associated with Gospel events, drawing new insights from the familiar stories.

    Freedom is Coming: From Advent to Epiphany with the Prophet Isaiah

    ,
    'Comfort, O comfort my people. . . In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord.'The second part of the book of Isaiah rings with proclamations and prophecies that find their fulfilment in the Gospels and are still being fulfilled by followers of Jesus today. In Freedom is Coming! Nick Baines invites you to think about what it meant for people in Isaiah's day to be living in exile, and how the prophet encouraged them to keep their faith alive despite the apparent hopelessness of their situation. At the same time, this book helps you to see the connections between Isaiah's time and ours, and how his vision of God's truth and justice spreading throughout the world can comfort, challenge and inspire God's people now, just as it did back then. Read this book and find out how you too can become a 'light to the nations' as, once again, we approach the celebration of Christ's birth and the new world that God has promised to bring into being.

    Light Upon Light : A Literary Guide to Prayer for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany

    ,
    As Lauren Winner says "Maybe it's not right to think of feasting during the somewhat penitential season of Advent, but that is what this book is: a sumptuous feast." In keeping with At the Still Point: A Literary Guide to Prayer in Ordinary Time ("a thing of beauty" and "a literary treasure trove and devotional feast," two reviewers called it) this collection contains daily and weekly inspirational readings to help the reader prayerfully experience God through the liturgical seasons of winter. Well-loved classics by Andersen, Dickens, and Eliot join contemporary works by Frederick Buechner and Gary Schmidt. Poems by Donne, Herbert, and Rossetti are paired with newer voices: Scott Cairns, Benjamin Alire Saenz, Susanna Childress, and Amit Majmudar. Readers are invited to experience Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany in its raw strangeness, stripped of sentiment, and to turn toward Emmanuel.

    Keeping Advent and Christmas: Discovering the Rhythms and Riches of the Christian Seasons

    ,
    While popular traditions of celebrating Christmas are an integral part of our shared culture, less is known about how other days of the Christian calendar at this time of year are observed and celebrated. Which prayer led to the creation of the Christmas pudding?Why is St Lucy remembered during Advent? What is the meaning of `boxing' on St Stephen's Day? Does Christmas really last until February? Leigh Hatts' comprehensively-researched book helps us to rediscover the Christian-based, seasonal customs buried deep within our culture and church life. Keeping Advent and Christmas is packed with fascinating details about the beliefs, rituals and traditions of liturgical days between `Stir-up Sunday' (the Sunday before Advent Sunday) and Candlemas (the official end of the Christmas period, on 2 February).

    The Treasures of Darkness : A Spiritual Companion for Life’s Watching and Waiting Times

    , ,
    I will give you the treasures of darkness and riches hidden in secret places, that you may know that it is I, the Lord, who calls you by your name. This verse from Isaiah led priest Barbara Mosse to question our assumptions about the dark times in life. We tend to associate darkness with the absence of God, yet the season of Advent is all about the unseen workings of God in preparation for new life and new hope. This book explores the many gifts of God that can be found not only during this season, but also at those times in life when we feel engulfed in darkness.

    My Soul Waits: Praying with the Psalms through Advent, Christmas and Epiphany

    ,
    In the silence, peace and watchfulness of Advent, let the Psalms guide you to the feast of the Saviour's birth. For Advent, Christmas and Epiphany, this new devotional combines the words of the Psalms, meditations from the Church Fathers, and a prayer as a guide for the reader through the various twists and turns on the journey to our Lord's Nativity.

    A Shaking Reality: Daily Reflections for Advent

    ,
    Inspired by a meditation – The Shaking Reality of Advent, written by Father Alfred Delp SJ while imprisoned by the Nazis during World War II – Peter B Price has written a series of reflections and prayers to be read on each day of Advent. Each reflection is offered that we may be 'shaken and brought to a realisation of our selves', in order to gain understanding of God's promise of redemption and release.

    Christmas is so often not only commercialised but domesticated. The weeks before are busy and demanding. Yet in Christian thinking, they open our eyes to the shattering and shaking work of God in taking human form as Jesus. Nothing could be more dramatic.

    Peter Price gently, but with great firmness, calls us to be shaken by Jesus, to have our senses stirred, to be awakened to the power of the birth of Jesus, to hear the call to celebration and the warning of judgement. It is an eye-opening book and I commend it warmly.
