In the Bleak Midwinter: Forty Meditations and Prayers for Advent and Christmas

This set of forty meditations and prayers can be opened at leisure or followed as a guide to daily devotions. Either way, it is a rich and imaginative reflection on the incarnation as God's continual gift to us. The overall tone of the book shows the depth and beauty, paradoxes and perplexities of the nativity.

Excerpts

"In the bleak midwinter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen,
Snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter,
Long ago.

I have seen some eighty midwinters, 'snow on snow.' May these meditations inspire, comfort, and give hope as you experience again the wonder and mystery of Advent."
