Comings and Goings

Retracing The Christmas Story Through Place And Time

by Gordon Giles


Price: £7.99
Publisher:BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship)
Published:September 2015

This really is what I would call an advent book as it most fully reflects the purpose of advent, that journey to Christmas where we most fully reflect on the incarnation in its fullness, the journey through not just the story of Christmas but of the bible as a whole and the life of Christ made man and witness.

 Each days reflection  begins with a very short passage from the New Testament and then moves on to a contemplation that both reflects on the passage at hand, the wider story of Christmas, and also the world in which we live and how this too is a wider reflection of the bigger story. 

On the whole this is a brilliant book to journey to Christmas with.
