Joyful Christianity

Finding Jesus in the World

by Cally Hammond


Price: £8.99
Publisher:SPCK (Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge)
Dr Cally Hammond draws on years of pastoral and scholarly experience to enable her readers to rediscover or deepen Christian belief. She draws on the ‘joyful mysteries’ of the Gospel of Luke: the annunciation, the visitation, the birth of Jesus, the presentation in the Temple and the finding in the Temple. The five short chapters make this an excellent Advent book, especially for those of us who find that the Christmas rush has little to do with joyful Christianity! I particularly appreciate the fact that she includes the relevant Gospel passages instead of presuming that we are familiar with them.
