All the Good: A Wesleyan Way of Christmas
By Laceye C. Warner, Amy Valdez Barker, Sangwoo Kim, and Jung Choi
The season of Advent offers time and space for Christians to prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ at Christmas through reflecting on the story of salvation.
In All the Good: A Wesleyan Way of Christmas, a group of diverse Wesleyan scholars will take you on an Advent journey guided by the practices in John Wesley’s means of grace. John Wesley’s emphasis upon practices of piety and mercy—or good works—drew from the larger Christian tradition. Such practices are often referred to as means of grace.
Each chapter guides participants through one of the four weeks of Advent by reflecting on biblical passages in light of an aspect of Wesleyan means of grace highlighted by illustrations and stories. Readers will look at preparing the way for God, the impact and significance of prayer, the substance of good works and caring for others, and sharing God’s mission to the world.
In this season of Advent as we await the birth of the Christ child remember and know God’s goodness and love for us.
A DVD with weekly video segments and a comprehensive Leader Guide with small-group discussion questions are available separately to create a four-week study for Advent.
If you are ready to have a deeper experience of Advent, read All the Good. You will go deeper in scripture, deeper in Wesleyan theology that will enlighten your understanding of this season and your faith in Christ.
–Tom Berlin, author of Courage: Jesus and the Call to Brave Faith
