Item description for From Holidays to Holy Days: A Benedictine Walk Through Advent by Albert Holtz...

Overview
Rather than criticizing trappings of the holiday season, this book looks at them from the viewpoint of Christian contemplation, once aptly described as "a long, loving look at the real." The author, a Benedictine monk who lives in the center of downtown Newark, New Jersey, invites the reader to join him on his daily walks as he points out dozens of often-unnoticed connections between our holidays and the spiritual meaning of Advent and Christmas. In a string of colored lights, a crowd of shoppers, or the window of a toy store, he uncovers such traditional Advent themes as watchful waiting, repentance, and selfless love. On the bustling sidewalks, he introduces us to Isaiah, John the Baptist, and Jesus himself, all speaking their ancient Advent and Christmas messages of peace and hope and good will.

Reviews - What do customers think about From Holidays to Holy Days: A Benedictine Walk Through Advent?

Advent study group  Dec 30, 2009
Albert Holtz has a great way of combining every day encouners with scripture and the Benedictine Rule. We use both his Lenten book and now the Advent book. Both serve a study group well and assist in giving voice to situations of which most of us are a part.
