Synopsis

In the excitement of preparing for Christmas, the traditionally penitential nature of Advent is often overlooked. This book takes readers from 1 December to 6 January, covering the well-known events of the nativity story while also showing the relevance of the Advent focus on the 'four last things' - death, judgment, heaven and hell - as part of the build-up to celebrating the Incarnation. Author Rodney Holder also draws on relevant insights from his years of work at the interface of science and faith.
