S 134 Reviving Advent, Reclaiming Christmas (2015)


As Christians, how can we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ without succumbing to the frenzy of consumerism that is the hallmark of a ‘happy’ Christmas for many people?

This radical booklet argues that the answer lies in the way we approach Advent. Intended for personal or small-group use, it makes a series of practical suggestions to help Christians—and churches as a whole—reclaim the traditional season of waiting for not just Christ’s birth, but also for his coming again.
