Description

This collection of daily and weekly readings goes throughthe liturgical seasons of winter — including Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. New voices such as Amit Majmudar and Scott Cairns are paired with well-loved classics byDickens, Andersen, and Eliot.

“For years I have been seeking a book which weaves scripture, prayer and the finest poetry and fiction into the devotional experience of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. Finally I have found it: an elegant and accessible gem with some classic texts and a rich selection from contemporary literature. This is not only a useful book, it is edifying and exciting reading—the perfect way for the literature lover to focus, meditate and celebrate this time of year.”
— Jill Pelaez Baumgaertner, poet; Professor of English and Dean of Humanities and Theological Studies, Wheaton College

“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.”
—Lauren F. Winner

“In our individualdarknesses we long for more light. Sarah Arthur understands this, and, as if pulling together scores of candles with burning wicks, she illuminates our whole year with the gift of flaming words. A treasure of enlightenment.”
—Luci Shaw, author of Breath for the Bones and Adventure of Ascent

“A beautifullynavigated journey through a treasury of literary wisdom – a book to cherish.”
—Jeremy Begbie, professor oftheology and director of Duke University Initiatives inTheology and the Arts
