Watch for the Light: Reading for Advent & Christmas

SKU: 23569



Selections from the world's greatest spiritual writers provide inspiration for the most widely-celebrated holiday of the year.

From Publishers Weekly:
It's hard to go wrong with 40 essays and poems from theological writers such as Thomas Aquinas, C.S. Lewis, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Dorothy Day, Madeleine L'Engle, Martin Luther, Kathleen Norris, Henri Nouwen, Philip Yancey, Karl Barth and Siren Kierkegaard.

These are not frivolous, feel-good Advent and Christmas readings; they are deep, sometimes jarring reflections, many with a strong orientation toward social justice ."The love that descended to Bethlehem is not the easy sympathy of an avuncular God, but a burning fire whose light chases away every shadow, floods every corner, and turns midnight into noon," explain the editors. This collection, born of obvious passion and graced with superb writing, is a welcome even necessary addition to the glutted holiday bookshelves. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
