If you haven't read the review yet, please check out Awaiting the Child by Isabel Anders. Unless you are currently in a liturgical church, Advent may not have the same meaning and weight that it carried when you were a child. Isabel's book would make a wonderful journal for this year's Advent journey. Her poignant writing style weaves together stories from her own life with biblical truths while beautifully embracing the solemnity of the season. It is always a joy to be able to review one of Isabel's books!
With the Christmas shopping season around the corner, consider picking up a copy of Awaiting the Child for yourself. It will keep you centered and maintain your focus on the real reason for the season during the four weeks leading up to Christmas.
Awaiting The Child
I'm not completely sure how I feel about Tandem. There is a part of me that believes 100% in guarding our hearts and minds against things of the world, etc. Another part; however, believes pop culture can be used to reach the unreached. With the enormous success of books such as Twilight and Harry Potter, why not offer a vampire story that will also introduce biblical truths?
If you are "on the fence" about books centering on vampires, Tracey Bateman's new book, Tandem, weaves together biblical themes and mythical vampires. Her story centers on searching for family, forgiveness, and love.
