Real God In The Real WorldJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
"Life is about recognizing Christ in all our journeys."
So says Trystan Owain Hughes in this new book of rich bible meditations. Hughes writes with a warmth, authentic insight and real delight. The writing style is fresh and engaging. Story-telling punctuates this title with the security and confidence of a seasoned and secure Christ-follower.
There is a great blend of traditional Christmas, and contemporary cultural insight in what is written here. There is plenty of gracious challenge surrounding the depth and parameters of the discipleship permeating our lives.
Incarnational faith is the most consistent theme offered by way of challenge in this title. For truly "work becomes worship when you dedicate it to God and perform it with an awareness of his presence."
All of life is engaged with in an earthy faith that is compelling in its nature. This is winsome stuff. The 'Christ in our neighbour' section is the one area of greatest challenge and provocation for me here.
I am such a fan of Trystan's other more complex, challenging, and nuanced books. This a great, if a somewhat rushed seasonal offering.
It's a perfect antidote to the chaos of the Christmas season—a worthy companion in the advent season. Here's to this and more Rev T O Hughes writing in the not too distant future!

A thoughtful and helpful guide to the Advent season, rich in wisdom and insight.

What I have come to love about the writing of Trystan Hughes is its richly eclectic nature. He draws from a vast range of sources - from ancient literature to contemporary news and film. In this volume of advent meditations he adds stories from his own life: both his small-town childhood in North Wales and his more recent work as a University Chaplain in Cardiff. The result is a reflection on the incarnation of Christ that 'does what it says on the tin': exploring the life of the divine in the contexts of real life now. One of the benefits of Trystan's considerable skill as a storyteller is that the writing never becomes dull. Every new page gives you good reason to read the next, until you find that you have taken in important spiritual truths just by listening: like sitting in the pub with an old friend and realising, as you rise to leave, just how much you have learned. This is a devotional that fizzes with the pleasure of an advent calendar: each day, as you open a new chapter, you will find yourself looking forward to the gems the author has for you.
