Item description for In My Heart I Carry a Star: Stories for Advent by Derek Maul...

This funny, articulate and illustrative guide provides a way to embrace the gift of Advent, reminding us of the core message: we wait for the Messiah. From sweet tales of childhood to more difficult and heart wrenching realities, Derek Maul offers us the realistic hope of Christmas. He reminds us through daily reflection that the season of Advent is, ultimately, a season of hope that offers each of us redemptive grace. During a time of anticipation for the holy family to be complete, Maul shares how his own family experiences caused him to become open to what Christmas had to offer.

This book is designed to serve as a kind of devotional almanac, a traveling companion for our Advent journey; a guide not only for Jesus-followers but also for those looking in from the periphery of belief. The following pages?more than just a collection of stories that help us understand the meaning of Christmas?ultimately turn out to be a personal statement of faith.
