    I didn t get Watch for the Light until nearly the end of Advent, so I can t give a complete review What I can tell you this is this is not your average Advent devotional Filled with thought provoking essays and beauty like the T.S Eliot poem Journey of the Magi perhaps the single most beautiful thing I have read so far ...

    I used this devotional through the Advent and Christmas season it ends January 7 as a way to focus and ponder some significant christian writers approaches to Advent, Christmas, and the beginning of Epiphany The collection is marvelous, in part because just when I was delighted to be reading a collection of liberationist texts, I would encounter a piece that really challenged me or was so caught up in doctrine that I had to parse it out, piece by piece, bow to the author, and then find a way t I used this devotional through the Advent and Christmas season it ends January 7 as a way to focus and ponder some significant christian writers approaches to Advent, Christmas, and the beginning of Epiphany The collection is marvelous, in part because just when I was delighted to be reading a collection of liberationist texts, I would encounter a piece that really challenged me or was so caught up in doctrine that I had to parse it out, piece by piece, bow to the author, a...
