Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

"As Christmas' cultural and commercial value increases ever more, the spiritual ground¬ing of Advent expectation becomes more and more essential. Taking time for personal reflection and family devotion becomes just another item on parishioners' long to-do lists, often falling below endless shopping, wrapping, baking, and hosting. Sunday wor¬ship and Christmas Eve services are their primary opportunities to stop and consider the timeless truth and lasting promise of Advent, and pastors' primary opportunity to touch hearts and lives during this special season."

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything in one place 28 Nov. 2015
By 💝 Alex S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I purchased this to help me through this advent season. I love the fact that it combines worship liturgies along with the Advent texts (Old and New Testaments). Like the other Feasting companions, it offers a well rounded look at the texts.

Since I use the Kindle version, I keep it open on my iPad while typing it into my computer. A bit old fashioned, but it works.
2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 12 Dec. 2014
By jetchick717 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has been very frustrating for me to use and I wish I'd not bought it. There is no indication of it serving any particular lectionary year (currently we are in B)--though in all fairness, I don't remember the book advertised as such. I've been able to page through it to find some of the texts but it has been frustrating. Some of the material (the sermon helps in particular) is duplicated in the corresponding Feasting on the Word series or the new Preaching series from Sundays and Seasons, which are both much more user friendly. Generally I'm happy with any kind of reference book I purchase that could possibly kickstart a sermon, even if it sits on my shelf for awhile--not so with this one. This book will never be a go-to for me. The liturgy stuff might spark ideas for some, but using it will require changes for context anyway. All in all, I'm not happy with this reference book; I wish I'd saved my money.
4.0 out of 5 stars An Alternative Lectionary for Advent 24 Nov. 2015
By Carla Libby Gentry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Once you have preached throughout the standard Revised Common Lectonary texts for Advent, this helpful resource will guide you through Advent using themeatic texts that speak to the season and provide helpful ideas for exploring Advent with fresh eyes and new perspective. I am looking forward to using it this year, 22 years into my ministry.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Book just not on Kindle 30 Nov. 2014
By Karen Coleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It is almost impossible to use this book on Kindle. Trying to reference reading and information does not work. It is a great resource that I have had to spend money on to buy the actual book. Order the book by all means.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Preacher's Best Friend! 28 Aug. 2015
By Dylan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Feasting on the Word never disappoints. Already had the lectionary set, so this Advent companion is a huge help and bonus. I plan to use it extensively. I recommend all the Feasting on the Words.
