Watch for the Light by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Annie Dillard, C. S. Lewis, Henri Nouwen, and many others.

There's plenty out there on the 'real' meaning of Christmas; this volume steps back further to examine more vital questions: What does it mean that God took on human form? That Mary believed? That Christ came down to earth, and will one day come again? Whether dipped into at leisure or used for formal daily devotions, this unparalleled collection gives the phrase 'Christmas preparations' new depth and meaning. Includes writing from Kathleen Norris, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Annie Dillard, John Donne, Meister Eckhart, Dorothy Day, T. S. Eliot, Gustavo Gutierrez, Eberhard Arnold, G. M. Hopkins, C. S. Lewis, Thomas Merton, Martin Luther, Henri Nouwen, Edith Stein, Thomas Aquinas, Dorotee Soelle, Philip Yancey, and others.

Writings on Kindness, Goodness and Grace are just what we need to be reminded of God's presence in the hustle and bustle of December as we wrap up another year. So often we are so rushed in finding the perfect gift we forget God gave the perfect gift when He sent His son to be born of a virgin over 2000 years ago. The reading contained within help us to refocus and set our hearts on things that really matter in the spirit of the season. It brings us back to the holiness that it was meant to be I give this 5 stars and when reading it by the light of the tree and the fireplace it gives your heart an even warmer embrace.
