Review: I have really enjoyed the art and reflections in this book. They have made me think, affirmed and reminded me of some of my own ideas and challenged me into seeing and thinking about some subjects differently, or in a fresh light. I suffered a loss of someone I loved just before Christmas, mid way through the book and the book was actually helpful in navigating through my feelings and reminding me of the truth of who God is. I think that’s why this book is so good - each chapter points back to God. The only way I think it could be better, would to be to include a suggested Bible Reading / verse to go along with the theme each day. I would have enjoyed being able to delve deeper on some of the days when I had a bit more time. The kindle version of this book is great - I used my iPad to read in and it means you can zoom in on the pictures and in my case, I also mirrored them on the TV screen at home, so the whole family could enjoy them each day.

Review: This is a book of 37 paintings taking us through Advent and Christmas while finishing at Epiphany. Each painting is used to fit in with the theme for that day. There are some from the great masters, some modern, some well known and others less so. Each is accompanied by three pages of thoughts, including some details about the picture and then using that to make a wider point about the theme for the day. It is a good idea, to use art as a springboard for Advent thoughts but could have been better executed. The pages are about the size of a CD case and the print is SMALL! The pictures are not the best reproductions either. The thoughts are easy to follow and well structured, the content of the words is probably the best part of the book. This could have been better, great concept let down by the product somewhat. If you are thinking of buying this with "The Art of Lent" then be aware they are very different in approach. That book selects art, often with no Christian content to make a point and the text is just one page of a few sentences. The size of that book is also small as is the font.

    Description: Advent is celebrated when the year is becoming darker and colder, moving into the death and dormancy of winter. Before we can greet the coming of the light, we need to engage with some themes that are challenging and occasionally fearful. Like the Magi who travelled a long distance to search out and adore the infant Jesus, and who took some wrong turns on the way, we too have a journey to undertake before we find that we have' Walked haphazard by starlight straight Into the kingdom of heaven.'U. A. Fanthorpe, BC:AD Haphazard by Starlight is a companion volume to Janet Morley's bestselling Lent book, The Heart's Time, which delighted readers with its thoughtfully chosen selection of poems and its biblically sensitive commentaries. Here, the reader is given an opportunity to engage in a pilgrimage of the heart, through Advent and Christmas to the feast of the Epiphany. Each day - from 1 December to 6 January - offers a poem (sometimes explicitly Christian, often not) and an accessible commentary that is both critically informed and devotional in intent. The poets represented include Rowan Williams, Elizabeth Jennings, Edwin Muir, Philip Larkin, Jane Kenyon, Gillian Clarke, George Herbert, T. S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, Waldo Williams, P. J. Kavanagh, Ruth Fainlight, William Blake and many more.
