Glory in our Midst explores the key themes of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany and Candlemas, setting them within a liturgical context. It can be read either cover to cover or used meditatively throughout the Advent and Christmas seasons, taking us daily more deeply into the mystery of the incarnation and inspiring us to make it a real and vivid part of our lives. Using bible stories and prayer, Michael Perham explores how the meaning of Christ's coming is revealed and, behind that unfolding, how key elements emerge in the Christian understanding of God himself. Michael Perham is well known for his many reflective and liturgical publications, which have inspired, challenged and strengthened many on their spiritual journeys. Michael Perham is the Bishop of Gloucester and was an architect of Common Worship. He has written extensively on liturgy, worship and spirituality and his books include New Testament Handbook of Pastoral Liturgy and Signs of Your Kingdom.
