In the Bleak Midwinter explores the power of Advent and the joy of Christmas through the poetry of Christina Rossetti.

Best known for her poems-turned-carols In the Bleak Midwinter and Love Came Down at Christmas, Rossetti's rich and wondrous faith provides an inspiring seasonal companion.

For each day from Advent Sunday to the Epiphany, Rachel Mann selects a poem and reflects on it, drawing on Rossetti's many other writings including her devotional journals and commentary on biblical narratives.

At a time when commercial pressures are at their most intense, this volume aims to lead readers to an encounter with God's time and space, to find our true identity beyond all that would limit and diminish our humanity.

Rachel Mann explains why Christina Rossetti is a perfect companion for Advent and Christmas.
