AN ENCOUNTER: A DAILY DISCOVERY IN DIVINE WORD (Vol. I)

Readers who seek a daily prayerful walk with God’s Word will be grateful for the new seven-volume series written by Father Maurice Nkem Emelu titled An Encounter: A Daily Discovery in Divine Word. In volume one in this new series, Father Emelu provides commentary and Bible verses to accompany the seasons of Advent and Christmas.

Drawing from biblical texts of the Advent and Christmas seasons and written in a simple style fit for anyone seeking to deepen their spiritual lives, each reflection centers on the Catholic liturgical reading for the day. Accompanying each reflection is a personal reflective guide and targeted prayer that allow readers to extend the conversation by adapting it to their unique situations.

Often conveying a tone of expectant delight, these Advent and Christmas reflections go beyond a mere first encounter with the Lord to a more profound spiritual experience in which to begin leading the life of Christ in his way.
