GOBSMACKED – DAILY READINGS FOR ADVENT (BK)
Daily readings for the four weeks of Advent.
In this collection Mary, the mother of Jesus, goes for a contemplative skate on a frozen pond where ‘praises piggyback until her soul topples over’, and John the Baptist tries to explain his purpose to a very perplexed Senator and chairman of the board. These are personal and universal, imaginative and biblically rooted reflections.
‘Reading one of Thom’s books is like walking and talking with a friend. Someone who understands the fragility and failings of being human (and himself) but who continues to laugh, and to hope and work for the coming of the Light.’
