As this edition will be going out immediately before Christmas, I am pleased to present a few more titles for Advent and Christmas reading and giving.

An Advent Book Of Days:  Meeting the Characters of Christmas by Gregory K. Cameron

An Advent Book Of Days tells the stories of all the characters and creatures that make up the Christmas story, with daily prayers and reflections based on their experiences.  Fully illustrated in colour, this rich, seasonal companion combines the Bible, history, art and legend to explore the story of the incarnation.

In Touch With God:  Advent Reflections on Biblical Prayers by Michael Green and Rosemary Green

Make this Advent a time to refresh and enhance your spiritual life by reflecting on some of the greatest prayers in the Bible and the people who prayed them.  Abraham, Moses, Hannah, David, Isaiah, Mary…….. This sequence of twenty-five inspiring meditations looks at how our forebears in faith turned to God, both in times of trouble and times of joy and celebration. These deeply prayerful reflections on Scripture will help you get in closer touch with God throughout this Advent season and beyond into the year ahead.

The Prince Of Peace In A World Of Wars:  Applying the Message Of God’s Love to a Needy World by David Kerrigan

The biblical title:  ‘The Prince of Peace’ leaves us  in no doubt that God’s purpose in Jesus Christ is to bring peace – universal peace, both with God and with our neighbours.  But have we really understood what this peace might look like, especially in a world of wars and suffering? David Kerrigan sees the coming of Jesus at Christmas as central to the divine plan to bring peace to the world.

Holding On When You Want to Let Go:  Clinging to Hope When Life is Falling Apart by Sheila Walsh

Are you struggling today? Are you stuck in the middle of a mess because life has not turned out as you expected? Are you holding on…..but not sure how much longer you can? With great compassion born of experience and hardship, Sheila Walsh comes alongside the hurting, fearful and exhausted to remind us that we serve a God who is so much greater than our momentary troubles, no matter how insurmountable they feel.  She doesn’t offer a quick fix. She offers a God fix. Sharing from her own painful struggles and digging deep into biblical stories of rescue, hope and miracles, she gives you the strength to keep going to keep holding on to God in a world turned upside down.
