meditations for advent preparing for christ s birth Reviews
Short book with explaining the Advent season for Orthodox Christians, but Christians of all stripes would probably enjoy reading. While some of the feast days that occur during Advent are present, it seemed that other information was left out, perhaps keeping the book on the short side. Really enjoyed the reflection concerning the feast of the Entrance of the Theotokos.
Having thoroughly enjoyed Meditations for Great Lent, I was eagerly looking forward to the second volume in Fr. Vassilios' Meditations series, and it did not disappoint. Delving into the depths of Holy Scripture and the Church's liturgical and iconographic tradition, the author takes us through the 40 day period leading up to Christmas, bringing to light the hidden gems of spiritual wisdom that characterise the often-overlooked Advent period. As I have come to expect from this author, the style is simple, to the point, but without being patronising or dumbed-down. As such, while this book analyses relevant Biblical and liturgical texts in greater detail than the first volume, it manages to do this without being heavy, convoluted or difficult to read. Highly recommended!
A nice meditation on Advent and Nativity. Fairly simple, yet beautiful with verses from the services. If you are already familiar with many of the service texts if the Nativity and the prefeast, you may not "learn anything new" but it is a great recap. If you are not familiar with these verses, then it will likely open up a new depth of understanding of the importance of Christ's Incarnation and the celebration of the Nativity.
Lovely meditations for Advent and preparing for the Nativity. The ancient hymns of the Church and spiritual meanings of biblical readings point to the Incarnation. Advent is a picture of the Church's journey of preparation throughout all time and we are inserted into that timeline every day of our faith walk. The first Christmas becomes more than a historic event because it is here and now, real and present. "Today the Virgin gives birth and today heaven and earth have been made one."
I found parts of this short book very insightful. It is one of the few Orthodox books on Advent of which I am aware.
