Augsburg Fortress In the Bleak Midwinter: Forty Meditations and Prayers for Advent and Christmas

Once again, well-known and beloved author Herbert Brokering offers spiritual nourishment, this time based on Christina Georgina Rossetti's Christmas carol, "In the Bleak Midwinter." This set of forty meditations and prayers can be opened at leisure or followed as a guide to daily devotions. Either way, it is a rich and imaginative reflection on the incarnation as God's continual gift to us. The overall tone of the book shows the depth and beauty, paradoxes and perplexities of the nativity.

Brokering embraces the elements and stuff of daily human life and masterfully, yet gently, uses those things to draw us into the awe and mystery of the Incarnation--God wrapped in flesh and bone and blood. With Christina Georgina Rossetti's poem as his framework, Brokering announces, "God has come among us," but also, "Never cease to look for a miracle from God every day."
