While We Wait

Living the Questions of Advent  

by Mary Lou Redding

Sometimes we struggle to believe we'll experience anything new as Advent comes around. What could we possibly learn that we haven't seen or heard before?

If you're looking for an Advent study of a different slant, While We Wait: Living the Questions of Advent offers new ways of connecting the story with your own questions of faith and approaches an all-too-familiar narrative from perspectives we may have missed.

You'll read about biblical figures mentioned in passing in the "original" Advent. Somewhat surprisingly, Tamar, Ruth, Mary, Zechariah, Elizabeth, and the Magi asked questions that resonate with contemporary Christians.

Designed as a complete Advent study, this book offers readers or groups

  • unique perspectives on the events of Christmas
  • complete plans for small-group sessions
  • a fifth session for the week of Epiphany
  • daily scripture reading and reflection questions
  • an introduction to the spiritual discipline of breath prayer

What are the questions you bring to God this season?
