Best Advent book I've found Dec 16, 2009
There are many, many Advent books out there, but this is by far the best. Classic Richard Rohr - looking with eyes that really see, drawing you deeper into the mystery, calling you to make your faith a lifestyle and not just a set of beliefs. I have other books for Advent, but each year I decide to do something different, I give up and come back to Rohr, a prophet worth following!
