This is the first in a series of books commissioned in consultation with John Sentamu.While this is an Advent book, subsequent books will range over other biblical and seasonal topics. Paula Gooder explores the central Advent theme of waiting (something we are not good at in our modern culture) in the company of the biblical characters who feature prominently in the lectionary readings for the season: Abraham and Sarah who waited for a child, Isaiah and the prophets who waited for judgement and redemption, John the Baptist, whose role was to wait in the wilderness until the prophecies he foretold were realised, and Mary whose waiting began in pregnancy and continued as she stood at the foot of the cross. Arranged for daily reading, this offers a meditation on the spirituality of waiting as a way of enhancing our lives and bringing us closer to God.
