I’m pleased to have recently read three online reviews of my new e-book, Discovering Advent: How to Experience the Power of Waiting on God at Christmastime.
The first appears at Faith, Fiction, Friends, the blog of Glynn Young. After sharing his own experience of knowing very little about Advent, Glynn writes:
He tells the story of Advent by telling the story of his own personal experience with the season, from largely nothing to an awareness to a growing appreciation for what it means. For readers like me, this sounds like a very familiar journey, one which helps us reach a deeper understanding of what the Advent season is.
Might it be a good thing for you to set aside a special time in the year to focus more on God so that you might grow in your relationship with him?
Might it be good for you to get in touch with just how much you need a Savior? Would it helpful for you to learn to wait on the Lord more consistently and faithfully? Would it be helpful to remember your hope in God and to be refreshed in that hope?
Might it be a valuable thing in your life to prepare yourself for a deeper celebration of the coming of Christ at Christmas? Would you like to experience more of God’s peace and presence during the hectic weeks prior to Christmas? Would your faith be enriched if you were to read, study, and meditate on biblical texts that speak of the first and second “advents” of Christ?
The third review appears in Lovepats. In “Trying on Advent,” Patricia Spreng writes:
Now that’s a connection I had not made before: Advent and monarch butterflies!
Thanks to Glynn, Adam, and Patricia for these reviews. I appreciate your affirmation and encouragement.
