Praise for this book

Buy this book in November, as a gift for yourself and others. Reading and reflecting on Kate Moorehead's daily meditations for the season of Advent will help you to prepare for Christmas not with impatience or frenzy, but with an expectant heart, open to receive the mystery of the Incarnation, and completely dazzled by the wonder of it all.
One is tempted to read the book all the way through at one sitting. Don't. Don't spoil four weeks of refreshment, teaching, challenge, expectation and rest. Morehead's choices of scriptural pericopes are telling. I am particularly taken by her choices on December 23 and December 24. They are a wonder of biblical paradox and will cause the mind to wait with expectation to see just how the tension is beneficial. . . . Buy this book!
In the midst of the frenetic, non stop pace of our modern lives, Morehead's Advent meditations offer an opportunity to slow our step and thoughtfully ponder our daily walk with God during this season of waiting and preparation for the yearly observance of the Incarnation, the coming of Christ. These brief reflections on the human response to God's great gifts and what the author calls 'the greatest act of God's love' are well worth our time and our measured attention as we heed the Psalmist's words to 'wait on the Lord and be of good courage. . . .'
