Stories of Calvary Book Review:

Danny Hodges became the senior pastor of a young church fellowship known as Calvary Chapel in St. Petersburg, Florida, in April of 1984. Three years later when he was introduced to Pastor Chuck Smith and the Calvary Chapel movement, he felt an immediate sense of being at home and was grateful to God for leading him to this network of churches that upheld a simple, biblical philosophy of ministry and well-balanced doctrine. Calvary Chapel St. Petersburg soon became a fellowship of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, and since that time God has steadily grown the ministry from a handful of mostly young single adults to a large church full of families. It has been exciting to see God's Spirit bring many to salvation through Jesus Christ, see lives change and mature in the Lord, see relationships bloom and grow, see ministries evolve and prosper, see a hunger for the Word of God and see a passionate desire to win the lost to Jesus. Pastor Danny and his wife, Wendy, consider it an honor to serve this growing body of believers together with their four children, Tanner, Hayden, Jairus and Audra.

God With Us Book Review:

"God With Us" is designed to make the celebration of Advent simple, memorable, and gospel-focused for the entire family. Daily readings corresponding with twenty-five symbols from the Old and New Testaments, short prayers, and extension activities provide a flexible and engaging approach to celebrating Advent for children ages 4-14, and the adults who love them. The Jesse Tree is a Christmas tradition that traditionally takes place during the Advent season. In the days leading up to Christmas, a tree, banner, or branch is decorated with ornaments depicting symbols from stories in the Bible that point ahead to the lineage and birth of Christ, the long-awaited Messiah. This book uses the Jesse Tree format to celebrate God's enduring faithfulness to His people through the sending of His Son to earth that first Christmas night. Simple yet beautiful images of hand embroidered felt ornaments accompany each day's reading, drawing in children and adults alike to the story of God's love as shown in the birth of Jesus. Appendices at the back of the book list the verses referenced for each reading in full, as well as images of each day's ornament or symbol that can be photocopied and made into ornaments. Gather your family to recount what God has done, who He has been, and who He still is to His people. As one generation "commends your works to another" (Ps. 145:4), you will find your attention rightly focused on God's magnificent gift to His people at Christmas - Jesus Christ, God with us.

Advent Presence Book Review:

One of the themes of the Advent season is to prepare for Christ, the Prince of Peace, who is coming again at a time of which we do not know. We are called to remember, to be reminded, and surprised along this journey as we live into the realized eschatology of Christ entering in our lives. Using the lens (literally and metaphorically) of Christ’s call to live a radical lifestyle by living into our baptismal covenant, the meaning making of Advent will awaken our hearts and eyes to the “Second Coming” of Christ. This book will offer a new look at Advent by seeing the four weeks through the lens of morning, mid-day, late afternoon and evening, and night. What images, energies, awakenings occur for us during those moments of the day and night? What hopes, work, resting, and dreams will inform our spirits and prepare for a new birth, new life within us? Advent points us back, quickens our senses and imaginations for the present moments, and fuels our anticipations of what might come next. Throughout the book there will be photographs, stories, and perspectives to enrich our travel and invite us to other dimensions of experience all to see Advent not only as a season but also as a resource in our daily living. Advent is a time of preparation, of patience, of remembering what grounds and sustains us. The function of Advent is to remind us who God is and who we are meant to be, as well. This book will serve as a devotional for individuals and small groups for the Advent season, with a particular focus on the Year C gospel readings from Luke.

In this book, with her trademark wit and wisdom, Rutledge explores Advent as a time of rich paradoxes, a season celebrating at once Christ’s incarnation and his second coming, and she masterfully unfolds the ethical and future-oriented significance of Advent for the church.

Meditations for Advent Book Review:

Keep Christ in Christmas this year by turning to this slim volume of daily Advent meditations by Bishop Jacques-Benigne Bossuet, one of the greatest homilists in the history of the Church. Carefully selected to lift your soul to God in those hectic days that stretch from Thanksgiving to Christmas, these forty daily meditations will keep you mindful of the real meaning of Christmas while affording you an admirable distillation of the doctrines and piety of our Holy Catholic Church. With the help of Bishop Bossuet and the sense of God's grandeur and love that permeates his every word all through the rush toward Christmas you'll stay mindful of the holy words of Isaiah foretelling the birth of our savior; you'll find yourself marveling at the Annunciation and the Visitation; you'll rejoice in anticipation of the coming birth of Jesus; and, finally, you ll look forward to kneeling with St. Joseph and the Blessed Virgin in silent adoration of the incarnate Son of God. This year, you won't (as so often happens) arrive at Midnight Mass distracted, exhausted, and frazzled, having neglected your Advent devotions and your ordinary prayers, too. Instead, you'll find yourself stepping lightly into church, ready and eager to adore the newborn King, your soul what it should be: a fit dwelling place for the Redeemer. Don't waste another Advent! Let Meditations for Advent keep you prayerful amidst the worst distractions of the holiday season. Let it draw you daily closer to Jesus, whose birth the season celebrates, and whose birth your soul yearns to celebrate, too.
