Description

This beautiful and thoughtful companion to the season of Advent and Christmas encourages readers to explore the true meaning of the festive season through a combination of reflections, quotations and classic images. The chapters focus on objects and activities we all associate with Christmas - such as making lists, decorations, gifts, Christmas trees, music, food and family - as well as special days such as Christmas Eve and Epiphany. In each section, the author brings together personal experience, Christmas traditions, spiritual reflection and quotations from scripture and other writings through the ages. The result is an imaginative and stimulating exploration of the riches of this season - illustrated throughout with colour reproductions of classic Christmas-themed paintings.

Review quote

Once again the partnership of Jane Williams and Lion Hudson has produced a well presented, thoughtful and challenging book. -- Graham Sykes * The Door * "Using poetry, art and personal spiritual reflections, the author has produced a gem of a book... Add in the illustrations and presentation and Lion should have another winner on their hands." * The Bookseller * A very positive book, it leaves you really looking forward to the big day - illustrated throughout with colour reproductions of classic Christmas-themed paintings. -- Paul Banks * The Lance *
