Publisher's Description

A child yearns as at no other time in the days leading up to Christmas. That yearning doesn't entirely go away as we grow older. It still lingers in the backs of our minds. We imagine that Christmas is mainly for children and our adult lives don't stop in the way that children's lives stop on Christmas morning, so we don't give ourselves time to notice the yearning. But it's there—hope mingled with anxiety about what lies ahead. In The Gospel of Christmas, Patty Kirk helps us get in touch with our muted hopes and fears and reminds us that they are met and given their resolution in the coming of Christ, which Christmas celebrates and Advent anticipates, and all our lives prepare us for.

Author Bio

Patty Kirk is writer in residence and associate professor of English at John Brown University. She is an award-winning writer and author of and


What a beautiful book! Like Christmas itself, The Gospel of Christmas is filled with wonder and delight as well as with longing and sorrow. Patty Kirk charms readers with her masterful story-weaving and her dazzling application. This book is a life-changer. A must-read for Advent and for Christmas or any old time.
-Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeneira,
author of Grumble Hallelujah and co-founder of Redbud Writers Guild

Patty Kirk can write. That she writes about Advent is a gift to the rest of us who, annually, feel vaguely oppressed, chronically anxious and emotionally exhausted by the trappings of December. In her words you will discover a blessedly new kind of Advent.
-Margot Starbuck,
author of Small Things with Great Love

Patty Kirk's love of words and language burst forth in this thoughtful, original and intimate look at the Christmas narrative, inviting the reader to embrace the ordinary and delight in the mystery of the Christmas season.
-Nathan Foster,
author of Wisdom Chaser
