A domestic journey from Advent to Epiphany
This item will be dispatched within 10 working days.
Following on from the success of At Home in Lent, Gordon Giles takes a journey through Advent to Christmas and beyond in the company of familiar seasonal and domestic objects and experiences. Focusing on the everyday stuff we typically associate with this time of year, including some things not so festive, he reflects on their spiritual significance, meaning and message in today's world. Beginning with chapters on journeying and travel, the book moves though major Advent themes of expectation, waiting, mortality and hope to the joy of incarnation and salvation. Praise for At Home in Lent: 'It is a great idea and an easy read.' The Reader 'Well written and thought provoking, this really is a book for personal devotion which will enable us to make an unusual, though worthwhile, journey.' The Methodist Recorder 'An amiable, slightly talkative companion.' Church Times
