The BRF Advent Book Comings and Goings
Full Product Description
Life involves many 'comings and goings', as we make our way along the path of faith day by day, guided by God's Holy Spirit. This book of readings for Advent and Christmas invites us to make a journey through time, from the end to the very beginning of all things. The daily reflections work backwards from the traditional Advent focus of the 'Four Last Things' - Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell - via Jesus' life, death and resurrection, to come at last to the Incarnation and the events commemorated at Christmas itself. In the following days, the focus turns to Christ as the Word of God, present at the dawn of creation. Along the way, we 'visit' some of the actual Holy Land sites associated with gospel events, drawing new insights from the familiar stories.
The Revd Dr Gordon Giles is Vicar of St Mary Magdalene's Church in Enfield, North London, and director of Post-Ordination Training in the Edmonton Episcopal Area of the Diocese of London Diocese. He has written several books including The Music of Praise, The Harmony of Heaven, O Come, Emmanuel, O Clap your Hands and Fasting and Feasting.

Comings and GoingsMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This really is what I would call an advent book as it most fully reflects the purpose of advent, that journey to Christmas where we most fully reflect on the incarnation in its fullness, the journey through not just the story of Christmas but of the bible as a whole and the life of Christ made man and witness.
Each days reflection begins with a very short passage from the New Testament and then moves on to a contemplation that both reflects on the passage at hand, the wider story of Christmas, and also the world in which we live and how this too is a wider reflection of the bigger story.
On the whole this is a brilliant book to journey to Christmas with.
