About-

Chuck Queen writes, "Advent is more than a memory of what took place in the past or an expectation of what is to occur in the future. Certainly Advent's invitation includes both remembrance and anticipation, but the light that was and will be is now, shimmering against the backdrop of our existence. The presence of Christ is for the present."

With scriptural wisdom, theological reflection, and pastoral insight, Chuck invites the reader to encounter Advent as a transformative experience. He utilizes film, literature, and contemporary experience to draw readers into spiritual reflection on the Christian's sacred story, exploring the redemptive possibilities of the Christmas season.

Chuck writes in the Introduction, "It is my hope that amid all the glitter, glamour, gladness, and grief of the Christmas season, you will find some shimmers of light in these spiritual reflections that will enlarge your vision of God's kingdom, expand your love for all persons, and evoke your creative participation with God's project to heal and transform our world."
