Book Excerpt :

Advent, says Fleming Rutledge, is not for the faint of heart. As the midnight of the Christian year, the season of Advent is rife with dark, gritty realities. In this book, with her trademark wit and wisdom, Rutledge explores Advent as a time of rich paradoxes, a season celebrating at once Christ’s incarnation and his second coming, and she masterfully unfolds the ethical and future-oriented significance of Advent for the church.

Book Short Summary:

Let the songs of the first Christmas turn your heart toward God’s glory. During the holidays the musical tunes of the season are everywhere. Their nostalgic melodies warm our hearts. But the original Christmas songs are different; they lift our hearts to a holy God. They reveal the greatness, glory, and goodness of our Savior. Taking us beyond quaint imagery and feel-good lyrics, the Advent songs of the Bible unfold God’s redemptive plan for the world and His eternal purpose for the ages. Reflecting her own love for the season, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth offers meditations on the first two chapters of Luke’s gospel in The First Songs of Christmas. This 31-day Advent devotional shines new light on the ancient yet inspiring songs of Elizabeth, Mary, Zechariah, the angels, and Simeon. These readings will lead you to contemplate the loveliness and essence of Christmas. Let this book be your companion as you spend the days surrounding Christmas the way these men, women, and angels did, your gaze fixed on our great God and Savior.

Book Short Summary:

Fr. Alfred Delp,S.J., was a heroic German Jesuit priest who was imprisoned and martyred by the Nazis in a Nazi death camp in 1945. At the time of his arrest, he was the Rector of St. Georg Church in Munich, and had a reputation for being a gripping, dynamic preacher, and one who was an outspoken critic of the Nazi regime. He was an important figure in the Resistance movement against Nazism. Accused of conspiring against the Nazi government, he was arrested in 1944, tortured, imprisoned, and executed on Feb 2, 1945. While in prison, Fr. Delp was able to write a few meditations found in this book, which also includes his powerful reflections from prison during the Advent season about the profound spiritual meaning and lessons of Advent, as well as his sermons he gave on the season of Advent at his parish in Munich. These meditations were smuggled out of Berlin and read by friends and parishioners of St. Georg in Munich. His approach to Advent, the season that prepares us for Christmas, is what Fr. Delp called an "Advent of the heart." More than just preparing us for Christmas, it is a spiritual program, a way of life. He proclaimed that our personal, social and historical circumstances, even suffering, offer us entry into the true Advent, our personal journey toward a meeting and dialogue with God. Indeed, his own life, and great sufferings, illustrated the true Advent he preached and wrote about. From his very prison cell he presented a timeless spiritual message, and in an extreme situation, his deep faith gave him the courage to draw closer to God, and to witness to the truth even at the cost of his own life. These meditations will challenge and inspire all Christians to embark upon that same spiritual journey toward union with God, a journey that will transform our lives.

Book Short Summary:

The Advent Lyrics, a group of Old English religious antiphons (formerly called Christ I) dating from about the 9th century, are presented in this edition as an independent group of poems disengaged, for the first time, from Cynewulf's Christ. Professor Campbell’s study focuses on the significance of the antiphons as lyrics rather than as philological documents. The book includes a full critical introduction, a new text and modern English translation (on facing pages), critical notes, and a glossary. Originally published in 1959. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Book Short Summary:

Christmas, with its sparkling decorations and gaily wrapped gifts, is the most celebrated holyday in many people’s lives. Christmas is even a holiday so brightly prominent is it in our culture. Christmas shines like the Bethlehem Star into the dark shadows of our workaday world. Christmas is the peaceful pause in the noisy hustle and bustle of our daily work and relationships. Yet for many the grueling preoccupation in the preparations for Christmas is with the jingle-belled material things: shopping, decorations, gifts, exotic foods, visits, entertainment, etc. Sometimes many forget the fundamental spiritual meaning of Christmas. These daily meditations are geared to help you to become more exuberantly aware of the primary meaning of Christmas, namely, the love of God so boundless that God gave us his only divine son as a human babe, Jesus, to live among us, teach us with his stories, lay down his life for us and rise again on the third day. These daily meditations were written in the hope that you will be able to probe, with dynamic and contagious faith, the gospel stories to increase and deepen your spiritual development during the Advent and Christmas seasons.

Book Short Summary:

In the busyness of the Christmas season, you may wonder: is there something more to Advent than candles, readings, and chocolate countdown calendars? Advent is about an arrival, about His presence. When Jesus was born 2,000 years ago, He changed the lives of those He met. They weren’t halo-encircled characters in a play. They were real people, hurt and lonely, anxious and hopeful, confused and afraid, ignorant and ostracized. His arrival brought a gift of hope to those who accepted it. We live with the same fear, the same frustrations, and the same faith. And Jesus awaits the invitation to arrive in our hearts, and to meet our needs and desires—to meet us. Take a few moments each day of this Advent season to peek into the past, to see those who knew Jesus in the flesh. Learn from their encounters. Welcome His arrival.

Book Short Summary:

The beauty of Christmas is more than tinsel and cookies and trimming the tree. The beauty of Christmas is exploring the story of Christmas in Luke 1 and 2. Advent. A time of remembrance and of expectation. A season to recall Jesus's birth over two thousand years ago. And a season of anticipation at His future return as King. Jesus's birth restored hope in people who hadn't heard from God in over four hundred years. His people needed to know He was still with them even when life looked grim. The same is true for us. When we look back at the tumult and triumphs we may have endured this year, it is powerful to remind ourselves that because of Jesus-as Isaiah prophesied, our "Immanuel"-our God is with us. This means that · in the day-to-day, God is with us; · in the changing seasons, God is with us; · in sadness and in celebrations, God is with us; · in breakups and in restorations, God is with us. It is necessary that we remind our children, our friends, and our nation that because of Jesus Christ, no matter the dark past or the present experiences, our futures can be bright! Hope Has Come: An Advent Devotional is a family-style devotional to be read each day in December leading up to Christmas. Experience and explore the most incredible story ever told. The advent story. Jesus came, and He is coming again. This is our living hope, and His name is Jesus.

Book Short Summary:

If you are troubled by the loss of 'Christ' in 'Christmas'; and by the noise, pressure and materialism of secular Advent with its emphasis on material and commercial rather than spiritual preparation for Christmas, this book will help you to read and think about Advent and Christmas in a new way. Co-authored by a New Testament specialist and a practising clinical psychologist, it explores the familiar narratives from the Christmas story with freshness and vigour, and draws out their implications for day-to-day living. The Christmas story is full of themes that we often avoid in churches - asylum seekers and refugees; death; loss and suffering; old age; childlessness - but they can give a new depth and meaning to our Christmas celebrations. Christmas will not seem the same again.

Book Short Summary:

Christopher, the leader of an elite U.S. special operations unit undertakes one of the most important missions of his military career, attempting to rescue a French journalist kidnapped by ISIS, while distracted with trusting God over himself. He is confused and angry with God and ineffective in his leadership, however, Jackson, the team-deputy and long-time mentor and friend provides much-needed stability for Christopher and the team. The operation reinforces in Christopher that God was not to be trusted when needed most and Jackson leaves the mission searching for God and meaning to his life, as the men prepare to return to Washington D.C for debriefing. As Christopher and his team redeploy from the rescue mission back to Washington D.C., they find themselves out of work as the National Security Advisor deactivates the Christopher-led unit pending an investigation into the failed journalist rescue. Things go from bad to worse for Christopher and Jackson as the two disgraced soldiers are thrust, unbeknownst to them, into the midst of the Rapture. They attempt to keep the chaos of a post-rapture world at bay, in a series of globetrotting missions, from rural Virginia to Brazil, ancient Babylon to remote Alaska. The actions of the president and others leave the world on the brink of World War. Christopher continues throughout each mission to trust himself above God. He refuses to listen to the Holy Spirit-inspired advice that those around him provide and the question lingers will he reconcile and surrender his pain to God.
