For years I have been seeking a book which weaves scripture, prayer and the finest poetry and fiction into the devotional experience of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. Finally I have found it: an elegant and accessible gem with some classic texts and a rich selection from contemporary literature. This is not only a useful book, it is edifying and exciting reading—the perfect way for the literature lover to focus, meditate and celebrate this time of year.

Maybe it's not right to think of feasting during the somewhat penitential season of Advent, but that is what this book is: a sumptuous feast.
Lauren F. Winner
In our individual darknesses we long for more light. Sarah Arthur understands this, and, as if pulling together scores of candles with burning wicks, she illuminates our whole year with the gift of flaming words. A treasure of enlightenment.
Luci Shaw, author of Breath for the Bones and Adventure of Ascent
A beautifully navigated journey through a treasury of literary wisdom - a book to cherish.
