Charles Wesley is known for the astonishing breadth of his hymnody, and many of his Advent and Christmas hymns are regularly sung in churches today. Charles Wesley, the younger brother of John Wesley, was born in December 1707 and this year mark's the tercentenary of his birth. These Advent and Christmas meditations are based on a selection of Wesley's best-loved hymns. For each day, there is a scripture reading, an extract from one of Wesley's hymns and short meditation and a brief prayer. The reflective material on the hymns places Wesley in the rich soil of his Anglican heritage. The book includes mediations for the whole of Advent and for each of the twelve days of Christmas. There are also suggestions for using the meditations in the format of daily morning and evening prayer, either individually or in groups.
