As Christians, our lives are empowered with the amazing truth that Jesus came, lived among us, and was crucified and rose from the dead, bringing us the gift of eternal life. But what would Advent look like from the other side--that is, for the people who had heard the prophets' foretelling but were waiting for the Messiah? As Isaiah put it, 'The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light' (Isaiah 9:2). The mystery of the Advent season is filled with paradoxes; it unfolds in the dissonance between light and darkness, peace and strife, solitude and community, and simplicity and complexity.
The Wondrous Mystery is a collection of meditations from various issues of Weavings, an award-winning Christian journal published by The Upper Room from 1986-2017. These devotions are written by exceptional authors such as Henri J.M. Nouwen, Barbara Brown Taylor, Wendell Berry, Sue Monk Kidd, Wendy M. Wright, and John S. Magabgab. They will challenge you to reflect on the wondrous mystery of God and the profound way Jesus' birth upends the world as we know it, signaling the beginning of God's kingdom. Large Print edition, paperback.
