Suggested Reading For Advent - From Christian Resources

During the hectic preparations for Christmas it is easy to let all our activities overwhelm us.  Why not try one of the new books written for the season of Advent?  They can enrich your spiritual life and provide the discipline some of us need to keep God at the center of our run up to Christmas.
Here are some of the new books published for Advent 2019, all available from Christian Resources.
Wake Up To Advent by John Sentamu Price: £9.99
“This is the hour of crisis:  it is high time for you to wake out of sleep, for deliverance is nearer to us now than it was when first we believed.”
St Paul's encouraging words to the Christians in Rome are the springboard for the Archbishop of York's Advent book for 2019. With prayers and stimulating questions for reflection at the end of each daily meditation, here is fresh spiritual food for the Advent journey – pressed down, shaken together and running over.
Freedom is Coming by Nick Baines Price: £9.99
“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 at the same time 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.
In The Bleak Midwinter by Rachel Mann Price: £12.99
Framed by her most famous poems, `In the Bleak Midwinter' and `Love Came Down at Christmas', this daily devotional explores Advent and Christmas through the poetry of Christina Rossetti.  For each day there is a poem with a reflection that draws on Rossetti's writings, such as her devotional journal and Biblical commentary.
Rejoice! By Chris Wright with John Stott Price: £7.99
25 Bible meditations based on Scripture verses and teaching nuggets from John Stott, with commentary and prayers from Christopher Wright. Accessible and bite-sized, fresh and exciting, each meditation deepens our appreciation of the timeless spiritual truths of Advent and Christmas.
