Embrace the Coming Light

Daily Readings and Prayers for Advent

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Advent is a season of memory and hope in which we prepare ourselves to celebrate Jesus' birth and eventual return. During this season we take stock of the darkness in our lives and our world so that we may more fully welcome the light of God at Christmas. Embrace the Coming Light follows four figures from the Gospel of Matthew's account of Jesus' birth: Herod, Joseph, the wise men, and John the Baptist. Readers take a journey that begins in darkness and isolation and ends in light and community. Each week includes a variety of ways to engage Scripture (inductive Bible study, imaginative reading, and lectio divina), a psalm, and writings from other Christians. Embrace the Coming Light also guides readers through a weekly spiritual discipline (a social media fast, solitude, generosity, and adoration) to help deepen the experience of Advent. The devotional has 28 days of readings and prayers and can be used with minor adjustments for Advent in any year.

Customer Reviews

Very Practical!

This book has very practical reflection questions and each week and practical step to take during the advent season. I love how the book takes us through the same passage many different ways and gets us to see it from a different lens. A book that helps me slow down and seek the presence of God in my life. Love it!
