Advent and Christmas, Paperback / softback Book

Advent and Christmas Paperback / softback

Part of the Bridges to Contemplative Living series


In this accessible introduction to the writings of Thomas Merton, small-group participants are led on a path of spiritual growth from the first week of Advent through Christmas.

Each of the books five sessions focuses on a distinct theme: hope, salvation, compassion, tenderness, or incarnation.

The structure of each session includes prayers, a brief thematic introduction, probing dialogue questions, and a reading from Merton paired with a reading from one of five other spiritual masters, including Gerard Thomas Straub, Anne D.

LeClaire, Olivier Clment, Michael Casey, and Christopher Bamford.

This contemplative approach provides a welcoming haven during the midst of a hectic season for existing small groups or for those looking for deeply rewarding reflection on the meaning of Advent and Christmas.
