CHICAGO, Ill., – Hope for the Holidays is more than just a catchy phrase that you might find in a Hallmark greeting. Hope is vital to our lives, and it is often the most prevalent theme during the season of Christmas. This book speaks about the message of hope that we find in the Christmas story as we celebrate Jesus’ birth. In this book, you will explore the ways one can experience hope for the holidays. In each chapter, the author looks at different characters in the Christmas story and how they offer a message of hope to us in our busy lives.
According to Bishop William Willimon, Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry, Duke Divinity School, and author of Accidental Preacher: A Memoir, “Andrew Lay leads us into Advent/Christmas and, creatively listening to the old, familiar texts, finds fresh meaning for today’s Christians. Lay restores the holy to the holidays in this fine presentation of the blessing of the Incarnation.”
