An Advent Book of Days: Meeting the characters of Christmas [9781786222688]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

An Advent Book of Days tells the stories of all the characters and creatures that make up the Christmas story, with daily prayers and reflections based on their experiences. Fully illustrated in colour, this rich seasonal companion combines the bible, history, art and legend to explore the story of the incarnation.

For each day of Advent, we meet a character caught up in the drama of the nativity, from the archangel Gabriel to the ox and ass in the stable. We discover what their portrayal in scripture reveals about them, how they have been understood in history, what folk legends have accrued around them, and what their stories offer for faith and devotion today.

This is a book to engage all the senses and the imagination, to be enjoyed slowly and to shed new light on the most famous and familiar story of all.


AUTHOR: Gregory Cameron is Bishop of St Asaph in the Church of Wales. Formerly a school chaplain, lecturer in the Old Testament, and chaplain to Rowan Williams when he was Archbishop of Wales, he is a calligrapher and icon writer and has created the illustrations for this book.
