The Advent of Christ
Scripture Reflections to Prepare for Christmas
Edward Sri

A virgin giving birth. A child laid in a manger. Shepherds greeted by angels. For many of us, the Christmas story has become almost too familiar, causing the profound, even shocking, mystery of the incarnation to be overlooked. But what if you were hearing it for the first time? These events would signal something new: the dawning of the long-awaited Messiah.

This Advent, put yourself in that ancient world. With an entry for each day of Advent and the Christmas season, this collection based on Dr. Sri's Dawn of the Messiah will help you discover spiritual treasures in the Gospels and gain a fresh understanding of the coming of Christ.

Each day contains:
  • a short Scripture reading
  • a meditation focused on the deeper realities of the Christmas story
  • a question for reflection
  • a closing prayer
Edward Sri is vice president of mission and outreach and professor of theology and Scripture at the Augustine Institute in Denver and founding leader with Curtis Martin of FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students). Dr. Sri holds a doctorate from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome. His books include The New Rosary in Scripture: Biblical Insights for Praying the 20 Mysteries and Men, Women and the Mystery of Love: Practical Insights from John Paul II's Love and Responsibility.
