When He Comes

Cover to Cover: 31 days for Advent

by Graham and Molly Dow


Price: £7.50
Publisher:CWR (Crusade for World Revival)
Published:August 2010
Are we so focused on Christmas that we overlook Advent? If so, this may be the antidote you need! It is common practice to use daily readings during Lent but not so often during Advent. Here is a book that provides thirty-one days of readings and reflection dated for every day in December written by Graham and Molly Dow (Graham was Bishop of Carlisle and is now a consultant to clergy in Chester Diocese. Molly was a Spiritual adviser for the Willesden area of North London and for Carlisle Diocese, and is a Reader in the Church of England).
The book is divided into five main sections entitled Godís Great Plan Unfolds; The View from HQ; Christís Return; The Action Begins; and Whatever Next?
Each day has a Scripture reading printed in full (NIV translation), followed by a ĎTo Ponder and Discussí comment to set you thinking. Here is a highly recommendable book that could be used devotionally as an individual or in an informal group of two or more people who could share their responses face to face, by telephone or by email.
