Preparing the Way

Cover to Cover - 31 Days for Advent

by Derek Tidball


Stapled booklet
Price: £6.99
Publisher:CWR (Crusade for World Revival)
Published:August 2011
Preparing the Way is another book in CWR's Cover to Cover series of study guides. Covering the whole of December Preparing the Way looks at the prophecies that pointed to Jesus coming as a baby, and also the many people who were players in the Christmas story. Even reading the book in October I found Tidball's comments and explanations thought provoking, and having passed the book around church the number of people who are ordering Preparing the Way for their own advent meditations tells the story for how good this book is. My only problem is that, while the book covers the whole of December with meditations up to New Years Eve it does not cover either the whole of Advent (starting on November 27th this year) or the whole of the Christmas season. Even so this is a great book for those wanting something to prepare the way in their hearts and minds this Christmas.
