As this is written during Advent to appear for Christmas, I have included some Advent books for future consideration.

Sharing the Christmas Story: From Reading to Living the Gospel by Sally Welch

In this year’s BRF Advent Book, Sally Welch explores two questions:  What is the Christmas Story really about, and how do we share it? Through each week of Advent, a different aspect of the Christmas Story is examined: light, promise, mystery, love, peace and hope.  Within each week, the days are focused on the ways in which the Christmas story is shared: prophecies, journeys, new life, signs, poems, stories and Conversations. Each day offers a Bible passage, followed by a reflection and prayer. Suggestions for group study and group study questions are included.

The Coming Of The King 25 Readings for Advent by J. C. Ryle

For most of us, Advent is synonymous with Christmas.  After all, don’t our Advent Calendars count down to December 25th?  Isn’t Advent a time to think about the birth of the baby in the manger in Bethlehem 2000 years ago?  But J. C. Ryle would also remind people of the ‘Second Advent’ when Jesus will come again.  On that day, Jesus will return to our world, not as a baby but as the unmistakable King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

The Art Of Christmas: Meditations on the Birth Of Jesus by Jane Williams

Jane’s meditations on the birth of Jesus take you deep in the story of the original Christmas as depicted in some of the world’s greatest paintings. These profoundly perceptive reflections on the different ways in which artists have imagined the Nativity will deepen and reflect your appreciation of the real meaning of Christmas, and the message of love, joy and peace that it speaks to all the world.
