Advent and Christmas Wisdom from Henri J.M. Nouwen

Daily Scripture and Prayers together with Nouwen's Own Words

by Henri J. M. Nouwen

The inspir­ing words of Hen­ri J. M. Nouwen guide the faith­ful on a spir­i­tu­al jour­ney through the Advent and Christ­mas sea­son in this book of wait­ing, hope, antic­i­pa­tion, and cel­e­bra­tion. Each day of the Advent sea­son (28 in all, to accom­mo­date the vary­ing num­ber of days in the sea­son) and each day of Christ­mas (12 in all, end­ing with Jesus’ bap­tism in the Jor­dan by John the Bap­tist) con­tain a per­ti­nent excerpt from the writ­ings of Father Nouwen, a relat­ed quo­ta­tion from Scrip­ture, a prayer for the day, and a sug­gest­ed activ­i­ty that offers a con­crete response to mark the season.

Advent and Christ­mas Wis­dom is indeed an easy-to-use, dai­ly pro­gram to cel­e­brate the momen­tous arrival of the Christ Child and the joy­ous news of our sal­va­tion. It is also an ide­al book for the indi­vid­ual seek­ing active par­tic­i­pa­tion in the sea­son and a renew­al of faith for the start of the litur­gi­cal year.
