Two holiday books are now available from Westminster John Knox Press. Evoking the beauty and importance of the season, Wonder of Wonders and Advent in Narnia allow the reader to experience Advent and Christmas in a new way.

Wonder of Wonders: Christmas with Dietrich Bonhoeffer includes brief meditations that are perfect as devotions for those who already love Bonhoeffer’s work and as introductions to his writing for young readers and others not yet familiar with him. Combined with beautiful, full-color photographs, these passages from the works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer remind us of the profound wonders we celebrate during Advent and Christmas and of the reverence appropriate to the season.

Advent in Narnia: Reflections for the Season invites readers to walk through the wardrobe of C.S. Lewis’s beloved classic in preparation for Christmas. These twenty-eight devotions feature Scripture passages and excerpts from C. S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, prompting meditation on Advent themes such as grace, love, and sacrifice. Questions for reflection are included with each devotion, ultimately guiding the reader to know God better while journeying through Narnia. This creative resource for families and church groups includes questions after each reflection, a leader guide for small group discussion, and ideas for a family “Narnia Night.” Click here for a sample reflection from Advent in Narnia.

Wonder of Wonders and Advent in Narnia are available for purchase through Westminster John Knox Press and other major retailers.
