While I am a bit late in making this notice, I still think it is still worthwhile. The Christian History Institute in cooperation with the Marion E. Wade Center has produced “The Grand Miracle: Daily Reflections for the Season of Advent.” This is a full-colour, 64-page booklet features the writings of “Wade authors,” C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dorothy L. Sayers, George MacDonald, Owen Barfield, G.K. Chesterton, and Charles Williams. Named for Lewis’ Easter sermon, “The Grand Miracle,” the booklet includes reflections by modern scholars, poets, and writers like Michael Ward, Christin Ditchfield, Kirstin Jeffrey Johnson, Ralph Wood, Carolyn Weber, Jennifer and Edwin Woodruff Tait, William O’Flaherty, Mark Noll, Andrew Lazo, Matthew Dickerson, Marjorie Lamp Mead, George Marsden, Chris R. Armstrong, Max McLean, Colin Duriez, Luci Shaw, Patti Callahan Henry, Suzanne Bray, Diana Pavlac Glyer, Bob Trexler, and Wade centre co-directors Crystal Downing and David Downing.
You can purchase this booklet from the Christian History Institute, and a full PDF is available here. My friend, William O’Flaherty, also did a podcast on the advent booklet. I hope this makes your Christmas season richer.
I believe in open access scholarship. Because of this, since 2011 I have made A Pilgrim in Narnia free with nearly 1,000 posts on faith, fiction, and fantasy. Please consider sharing my work so others can enjoy it.
About Brenton Dickieson
“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing.
This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box.
