Christmas is the season most difficult to grasp and understand in all its spiritual richness. The sentimentality and commercialism that dominate the season tend to obscure the profound mystery at its heart: the Incarnation. God with Us provides the perfect way to slow down and reconnect with the liturgical and sacramental traditions that illuminate the meaning of Christmas and the Incarnation. In daily meditations for the complete seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, the contributors offer a tapestry of reflection, Scripture, prayer, and history. God with Uswhich has sold more than 25,000 copies in its original, illustrated, $30 editionwill make anyone's journey to the stable in Bethlehem and the child in the manger unforgettable. This new "Reader's Edition" is designed to make the book more affordable, able to reach an even wider cross-section of readers.
"An enormous gift not only to the literary community but also to all who feel themselves embarked on a pilgrimage through life." From the Introduction of Slow Pilgrim by Gregory Wolfe "I can adduce no other American poet who has cared in just this amalgamating way for his text and his Text Cairns is the singular poet in this age of our country who has not seen fit to oblige his poetry to serve his belief, nor his belief to serve his poetry; it is one grown-up mind we read, one mans voice we hear: a contingency which makes it absurd for me to speak of service in either direction, for in these poems there is but one directioninward."
