Wake Up to Advent!

Wake Up to Advent! written by The Archbishop of York - the perfect antidote to the stress and commercialism of our preparations for Christmas.

‘This is the hour of crisis: 
it is high time for you to wake out of sleep, 
for deliverance is nearer to us now 
than it was when first we believed.’

St Paul's encouraging words to the Christians in Rome are the springboard for the Archbishop of York's Advent book for 2019. With prayers and stimulating questions for reflection at the end of each daily meditation, here is fresh spiritual food for the Advent journey – pressed down, shaken together and running over.

‘Wake up! Clean up! Feed up! Grow up!’

Walk alongside Archbishop Sentamu this Advent, as he discusses the meaning and influence of those four gospel imperatives in this lively and invigorating book.

The Archbishop of York’s Advent Book ‘Wake up to Advent’ is published by SPCK. ISBN: 9780281083541.  £9.99.  Short extracts of the book will be available here daily throughout Advent.
