Various authors in their new book “watch for the light book coverWatch For The Light” published by Plough Publishing House gives us Readings for Advent and Christmas.

From the back cover:  From the world’s best-loved writers, a reading for every day of the holiday season.

Unparalleled both in concept and scope, this new collection of readings for Advent and Christmas offers wisdom, beauty and spiritual nourishment from a wide spectrum of classic and contemporary sources.

Containing a selection for each day of the Christmas season, from the last week of November through the first week of January, “Watch For The Light” can be dipped into at leisure or followed as a guide to daily devotions. Either way it will give new meaning to the phrase “holiday preparations.”

Advent literally means “Arrival”. For us it is the five weeks from the end of November until the day after Epiphany in January which is the traditional close of the holidays. This time is what is known as the “holiday season”. This is the time for shopping, Christmas and New Year’s parties, gift giving, Christmas movies and other things that capture our attention, make us run around and quite literally exhaust us. That is not really the purpose for the season. What we should be doing is focusing our attention on the coming of God to Earth in the form of a baby. Advent is not purple candles and it does not belong to a denomination it is for all individuals who believe in Jesus. We need to focus our attention on Him. “Watch For The Light” gives us a devotional, by day, for every day of Advent. The first day I went to look at was my birthday. Each day has a story or poem from a respected author to re-focus our attention on God and away from those things that cause us to be busy and separate from God. It helps to renew and reinvigorate us in our spirits. They are easy reads that do not take much time but the results are lasting. This is one book you will be returning to year after year.  It is also a great gift to give to friends and family to help them with their days.  I recommend this book highly.
