Publisher's Description

The inspiring words of Henri J. M. Nouwen guide the faithful on a spiritual journey through the Advent and Christmas season in this book of waiting, hope, anticipation, and celebration. Each day of the Advent season (28 in all, to accommodate the varying number of days in the season) and each day of Christmas (12 in all, ending with Jesus' baptism in the Jordan by John the Baptist) contain a pertinent excerpt from the writings of Father Nouwen, a related quotation from Scripture, a prayer for the day, and a suggested activity that offers a concrete response to mark the season.
Advent and Christmas Wisdom is indeed an easy-to-use, daily program to celebrate the momentous arrival of the Christ Child and the joyous news of our salvation. It is also an ideal book for the individual seeking active participation in the season and a renewal of faith for the start of the liturgical year.

    This guide takes excerpts from various Nouwen books (and the man certainly had a writing career!) and compiles them into nice daily reflections for Advent and Christmas. For each day there is an Nouwen quotation, a Scriptural passage, a prayer and an action. So it's pretty doable and you could spend anywhere from a few minutes to all day with what is suggested.

    I bought this because I wanted an Advent devotional and because i like Nouwen. I'd recommend it for these purposes or to introduce someone to this wonderful author, as it can be a little daunting to try to read someone new that has such a vast amount of writing.

    I had ordered this book for myself, but I ended up ordering it for several people. It is as good as the one he had for Lent and Easter > It is short enough to be interesting, but long enough to make you stop and think.The actions at the end of each day is very doable and is something that can be carried over throughout the year. I highly recommend it to anyone, whether they are a new Christian or one who has been one for many years.

    I was searching for a devotional book that would help prepare me for advent. Wow, this book is better than I hoped! It is so easy to get caught up in the whole Christmas rush and I wanted something to help me slow down and remember what it is we are celebrating....the birth of our Lord Jesus.
