Advent Book Review



Watch for the Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas arrived on December 1st, which was perfect, since the readings begin on December 1st.

Advent begins on a different date each year, but this book's readings start on December 1st so you can easily pick it up and enjoy reading it each December as you prepare to celebrate Christmas.

The book has many contributing authors such as:
C.S. Lewis
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Henri Nouwen
Madeleine L'Engle
Martin Luther
Philip Yancey
T.S. Eliot

This book contains enjoyable readings, which encourage the reader to contemplate and help them ponder a little deeper, but they are light on scripture. They are not contradictory to scripture, but light on Scripture. This book is not for everyone since some do prefer Scripture to be the foundation and backbone of their advent readings.


Disclosure Statement:
I did receive a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

I want to read this book now since your review is very nice. But following your recommendation, I leave it for December.
