Unearthly Beauty - SPCK Advent Study
Full Product Description
- Want a deeper understanding of Advent?
- Unearthly Beauty turns to the Saints to grow in you a rich view of the Christmas period
- Perfect for anyone looking a new view of God's greatest gift
Advent is about arrival - the arrival of Jesus into our world in poverty and vulnerability amidst unusual circumstances. For the world then, as now, Christ's coming generated a mixed response from a variety of people - anxiety, threat, expectation and hope.
For Christians, entering Advent calls for fresh reflection on our faith, and this book aims to provide stimulating material for the journey up to (and including) Christmas. It is inspired by well-known, as well as more obscure, holy people from the past whom the church calls saints - people of unearthly beauty who reveal to us a deeper understanding of the fluid nature of divine grace.
