Exploring Advent with Luke
Four Questions for Spiritual Growth.
In this contemplative Advent companion, Timothy Clayton guides readers into a scriptural exploration of the events leading up to the birth of Christ, providing keen insight and sensitivity to the challenges of the holy season.
He deftly shows how Luke composed this first chapter of his gospel to deepen understanding of the birth of Jesus and how meditation on the questions posed by its main characters can help resolve issues that hinder the joy of Christmas.
Designed to be used on a weekly basis through Advent and during the Twelve Days of Christmas, this reflective guide is ideal for individual and small-group use. Clayton’s insight is reminiscent of Henri Nouwen or Thomas Merton, and offers not only a guide to remembering the events of Christ’s birth but also a way to bring the story to life anew.
