An Advent Book of Days:
Meeting the Characters of Christmas
Gregory Kenneth Cameron
Paperback: Paraclete Press, 2021
From December 1 to December 25, Gregory Kenneth Cameron invites you to partake in a daily feast for the eyes and the spirit. Rich reflections draw upon scriptures, history, and legend about the character of the day – Gabriel, the Virgin Mary, the Star, the Magi, and of course the Christ Child, paired with gorgeous illustrations from the author, adapted from famous works of art. Step into the tradition of visio divina inspired by the medieval tradition of the illuminated book of hours, and celebrate the many aspects and persons of the Christmas story through the centuries.
“It is my hope that these reflections, whenever they are read, will help us to discover new depths in the Christmas story, to deepen our faith, and perhaps even to learn something new or unexpected; because over two thousand years, the story of Christmas has become filled with unexpected delights arising from Scripture, history, legend and faith.” —Gregory Kenneth Cameron
