And She Prays...

Saturday, November 24, 2007

I found a new book that I'm really excited about starting! It's Immanuel: Praying the Names of God through the Christmas Season, by Ann Spangler.

The book is laid out in 6 weeks: 4 weeks of Advent and the traditional 2 weeks (12 days) of Christmas. Readings are given for Monday through Friday. I will be highlighting the readings here. I'm going to go ahead & start the book this coming Monday, rather than waiting another week.

If you're interested in ordering your own copy there are two great sources to choose from: has the book new for $10.19, eligible for free shipping on orders of $25 or more, and has it new for $10.99. To get to the book on Amazon, simply click on "My Amazon Store" in the links on the right & it will be the first item you see. Following is a book summary and link to CBD:
