Why This Jubliee?: Advent Reflections On Songs Of The Season

Music is such an important part of Advent and Christmas. Can you imagine Advent without "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"? How about Christmas without carols like "O Little Town of Bethlehem," "Silent Night," and "Joy to the World"? It pleases the Lord Jesus when we sing of his coming with carols we know by heart. It pleases him even more when we think about the words we are singing. In 24 reflections on well-known carols and Christmas songs, James Howell explores the birth of Jesus. He ponders the meaning of certain phrases from these songs and relates them to our daily lives. The four weeks of devotions are arranged by topic: The Place The Men (Joseph, shepherds, magi) The Mother The Child A guide for weekly discussion is included. Join Howell in this rich remembrance for the Advent and Christmas seasons.

Wonderful connection between the familiar carols of Advent/Christmastime and a rich insights of a pastor. I have given the book as gifts, especially to friends who lead music. There is a lesson (many lessons) in each chapter. I look forward to next Christmas, when the book will be my companion for the season.

My Sunday school class is going to use this book as an Advent study this year.

This is a well written and very thoughtful examination of the words of all types of Christmas music. Very inspiring!

Really would have liked to have more songs included. Good commentary and insight on what was in the book.

GREAT advent preparation material!! Fun, interesting information--enjoyed using it at a weekly gathering.

Very meaningful devotional articles on Christmas songs both religious and secular.
