Publisher's Description

Advent is a busy and sometimes stressful time of year, but in God’s Gift of Love, Donna Schaper reminds us that Advent also gives us an opportunity to slow down, recognize that God’s love has found us, and live in peace. By changing our attitude and our understanding of time, we can prepare for and look forward to the coming of Jesus Christ. We can be ready to conceive God’s love in us and reconceive our lives and our behavior toward others. Schaper’s writing helps us understand that love is not a sentiment but a way of life that emerges from the knowledge that in Jesus Christ, we experience God’s love.


God’s Gift of Love offers the opportunity and challenge to appreciate and live in the amazing gift of God’s love by studying the Revised Common Lectionary readings designated for Advent, Year A. Donna Schaper helps readers experience the blessings of Jesus’ birth and Christ’s second coming in the fullness of time.


A Leader Guide by Nan Duerling, with Bible background and suggestions for group activities, is included in this book.
