Beginning on November 24th and going through January 7th, Watch For The Light is a devotional book packed with an eclectic group of authors.
I enjoyed reading through the first part of the devotions, but often found them a bit to long for me. The subjects of each devotional were very thought provoking and encouraging though.
The Watch For The Light Readings is a nice collection of writings that will help anyone refocus on what this time of year is all about amongst all the busyness of the season.
From the publisher:
By Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Annie Dillard, Thomas Merton, Kathleen Norris, C. S. Lewis, Henri Nouwen, and others
Though Christians the world over make yearly preparations for Lent, there’s a conspicuous lack of good books for that other great spiritual season: Advent. All the same, this four-week period leading up to Christmas is making a comeback as growing numbers reject shopping-mall frenzy and examine the deeper meaning of the season.
Ecumenical in scope, these fifty devotions invite the reader to contemplate the great themes of Christmas and the significance that the coming of Jesus has for each of us – not only during Advent, but every day. Whether sampled at leisure or used on a daily basis, Watch for the Light gives the phrase “holiday preparations” new depth and meaning.
Includes writings by John Donne, Meister Eckhart, Dorothy Day, T. S. Eliot, Gustavo Gutiérrez, Eberhard Arnold, G. M. Hopkins, Martin Luther, Edith Stein, Thomas Aquinas, Dorothee Soelle, Philip Yancey, and others.
