In the weeks before Christmas, rushing from one engagement to the next can begin to seem like an end in itself. The word “Christmas” appears everywhere, but really, there isn’t much time to think about Christmas itself because there’s just too much to do. In the midst of such busyness, how can we prepare the way of the Lord? Advent reminds us.

As we light the candles of the Advent wreath, or open each door of the Advent calendar, or shop and cook and wrap the inessentials of Christmas, as we make lists, decorate, and plan for holiday guests, we are preparing to take our place in God’s great plan. And in the midst of it all, the quiet reason: all this for one little baby.

In Approaching Christmas, Jane Williams seek to learn from the joy so many people feel, and to make connections between this joy and the spiritual meaning beyond it—the meaning, for example, in the way we decorate our homes, or in the gifts we give each other.

The chapters of this book focus on things we all associate with Christmas, such as: making lists, decorations, gifts, Christmas trees, music, food and family. In each one, the author blends personal story, Christmas traditions, spiritual reflection, and quotations from Scripture or other sources to offer an imaginative and stimulating way into the riches of the season.

Illustrated throughout with fine art, Approaching Christmas is a beautiful and rewarding companion to the Christmas season.
