The Incredible Journey: Christmas from Genesis to Jesus

BRF Advent Book 2011

by Steve Brady


Price: £7.99
Publisher:BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship)
Published:September 2011
I am a fan of BRF Advent books and warmed to the theme of this one as soon as I started to read.
December 1st to January 6th split into seven day periods, makes five sections plus two days. These are designated as Starting out: Crashing badly: Detouring often: Arriving on time: Journeying on and Homeward bound. Does that sound a familiar pattern in your life? It does in mine!
Steve Brady has used passages from Genesis to start with, followed by mostly Old Testament readings with a few appropriate New Testament readings interspersed. There is a satisfyingly long passage from scripture at the start of each day, followed by Steve’s related thoughts and a final reflection. These reflections are sometimes prayers but more often points to ponder and use in our own prayers.
Excellent and highly recommended
