Containing prayers, carols and hymns celebrating the festive period, Pocket Prayers for Advent and Christmas provides prayers for the season.Structured to provide a prayer a day throughout the festive period, this seasonal addition to the popular Pocket Prayers is divided into practical themes, such as 'Waiting...the season of Advent' and 'Welcoming...the joy of Christmas day'.An ideal collection for anyone wishing to connect with the message of Christmas.
"For my taste, the poetic turn of phrase that has caught McFarlane's eye is much more spiritually rewarding than wordy prose counterparts. In Advent, more than any other time of year, perhaps the least said, the better." -- The Revd Penny Seabrook, Church Times
