Christmas: Ancient Meanings, Modern Faith by Adrian Alker
Together In Hope - Resources for Christian Faith Today
The third book in the study guide series explores the place of myth within the gospels and how its meaning can contribute to the shaping of a progressive Christian faith. Using the birth narratives in Matthew and Luke, Adrian Alker highlights their distinctive contributions and considers how the themes which emerge can be expressed through liturgy at Christmas. Each of the five chapters ends with some questions to promote group discussion and the book ends with a list of resources for further study.
“I hope this book will confirm the significance of the ancient stories of the nativity of Christ for our world today, as we explore in mind and heart the profound meanings of Christmas for contemporary disciples.” - Adrian Alker
