Here are thirty-seven inspiring readings for the days of Christmas. Herbert Brokering takes the reader on a unique journey through Advent and Christmas in the form of imaginative dialogues with the mother of Jesus. Beginning on December 1 and ending on January 6, each dialogue explores a new and exciting understanding about the birth of God's Son. The readings capture thoughts and emotions that Mary might have experienced in the unfolding of this marvelous event.Each dialogue is introduced with a Bible verse and brief scene-setting paragraph and concludes with a provocative question and prayer. A beautiful book for personal, or group, use during the Christmas season.
