Yes it's beginning to look like that time of year again here at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market (and at all good Independent & Christian Bookshops elsewhere too I'm sure)! And @brfonline rarely disappoint and haven't again with some great Advent titles.. And that 'The Visual Christmas Story' is a real surprise that works for churches and unchurched, readers and non-readers too... I'll concede the images won't be to everyone's style but if you're aiming at a younger adult audience then these will work well. If like me you are into Celtic style spirituality then David Cole's 'Celtic Advent : 40 days of devotions to Christmas' is a real delight and a great follow on from his Celtic Lent book a few years ago. 40 days of course because that's how long a Celtic advent is. Finally David Kerrigan's 'Prince of Peace in a World of Wars' is the one I would seriously recommend to any grappling with the real humanitarian issues and crises of our world today... Things like Syria, Yemen, Gaza and the many other places of trouble, war and abandonment... Why? Because this is a book of hope and love, a book that leads us to Advent not dwelling on the horror, but acknowledging it and addressing it, and focusing on how we through love and action can change the world just as the Christ Child did. Just a reminder that these and many more books like them are available in real physical local and independent Bookshops near you like us at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market... Please buy them there and support your community and independent business people where you can. https://ift.tt/1TEBPlr #books #book #indiebookshop #christianbooks #christianbookshop #theology #spirituality #faith #Christmas #advent #reviews #christian #bookreviews #Lincoln #bookshop #biblestudy #devotional
