Meditate on Christ's sacrifice throughout the seasons of Advent and Epiphany! Buchan helps you focus in on the holiday's deepest significance. Used as a family devotional or a source of sermon ideas, her reader empowers you to rise above commercialism and prepare for Christ's advent in your own life. Includes discussion questions and suggestions for children's activities. 96 pages, hardcover from NavPress.
Buchan, who grew up evangelical and came to understand Christianity's rich
liturgical calendar as an adult, aims to restore the season of Advent as a
time to prepare for Christ's coming (and not just to prepare for the assorted
relatives who will be arriving on Christmas Day). She offers this book for
parents who want to include their children in daily devotions during Advent,
Christmas and Epiphany. Each day's lesson includes a Bible story, questions
for reflection and suggested hands-on activities to get younger children
involved. Buchan also asks parents to provide a four-candled Advent wreath and
a nativity scene, to help children understand the purpose of the season.
Replete with evangelical language and a general theme of Christ as the
sacrificial lamb whose blood is poured out for others, this book will best be
appreciated by evangelical Christians. (Oct. 3) Copyright 2003 Reed Business
