Advent : The Once and Future Coming of Jesus Christ, Paperback / softback Book

Advent : The Once and Future Coming of Jesus Christ Paperback / softback


"Advent," says Fleming Rutledge, "is definitely not for sissies." As the midnight of the Christian year, Advent is rife with dark, gritty realities.

In this book Rutledge spotlights the rich significance of the Advent season not just as transitional but as vibrant and profound in its own right. With her trademark wit and wisdom, Rutledge explores Advent as a time of such paradoxes as waiting and hastening, suffering and hope, justice and mercy, now and not-yet.

Showing how Advent at once celebrates Christ's incarnation and his second coming, Rutledge masterfully unfolds the ethical and eschatological implications of this special season.
