Reviews - What do customers think about Love Came Down: Anglican Readings for Advent and Christmas?

Prayers and Meditations for Advent-tide and Christmastide  Nov 6, 2009
Most Christians -- and even many non-Christians -- eagerly look forward each year to the Christmas season (or Christmastide), when homes and businesses alike are lit with colorful lights and festooned with seasonal decorations. Often lost in the Christmas "rush," however, is the important liturgical season of Advent (or Advent-tide), the four-week period preceding Christmas Day. Advent is a time of personal as well as communal prayer and preparation, as we await the birth of the Christ Child into the world. It also anticipates the greatest "advent" of them all -- the long-awaited "Second Coming" of our Lord in power and glory!

In Love Came Down: Anglican Readings for Advent and Christmas, popular author and Episcopal priest Christopher L. Webber provides devotional readings for each day of these beloved liturgical seasons. These reading are drawn from a variety of sources, including poets (Christina Rossetti and John Donne), pastors (Hugh Latimer and William Law), and theologians (Jeremy Taylor and John Keble), all from the Anglican/Episcopal tradition. Fr. Webber also includes a brief biography of each of these spiritual authors. I highly recommend Love Came Down to Christians of all denominations, who will find in this book a source of prayer, meditation, and spirituality for decades to come!
