Exploring Advent with Luke

Full Product Description

This creative exploration of Advent guides readers to rediscover the power of the events leading up to the birth of Christ. The four questions of Luke chapter 1, as posed by Zechariah, Mary, Elizabeth, and the people in the Temple, spur readers to personal reflection on disappointment, inadequacy, openness, and trust.

In Exploring Advent with Luke: Four Questions for Spiritual Growth, Timothy Clayton deftly shows how Luke composed this first chapter of his gospel to deepen understanding of the birth of Jesus and how meditation on the four 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 brings the story of Christ's birth to life anew.

Exploring Advent with Luke by Timothy Clayton was published by Ave Maria Press in September 2012 and is our 18224th best seller. The ISBN for Exploring Advent with Luke is 9781594713040.

“Tim Clayton skillfully weaves together the Christmas story, his personal story, and our own, helping us see it all as God’s weaving. A perfect Advent reflection.” - Msgr. Charles Murphy, Author of The Spirituality of Fasting

“It’s refreshing to find a deceptively simple book of devotion that gets back to the heart of the Christian pilgrimage as a romance. We are part of a love story, and we learn to love by being willing to live into deep questions. In the monastic community where I was trained as a priest, we were told constantly that God is madly in love with us and wants us to come home. This is a book about that homecoming—a timely one in an age of estrangement. But how are we to read the drama of Christmas? Primarily, through the door of amazement, reading the stories with the eyes of love. This is a generous book—a true celebration of the Good News.” - Alan Jones, Dean Emeritus, Grace Cathedral, San Francisco
