Highly recommended for parish libraries and for all readers who wish to be engaged and inspired by the dawning of the light during Advent and Christmas.

Goodness and Light can be read as simply a gathering of stories and poems moving us toward the birth of Christ and forward to the epiphany. But there is also the choice of journeying with these 48 writers to the depths of our own hearts and finding the goodness along the way that leads us, that lights our path during this season and throughout the year. Either choice will bring blessings of peace and joy.

Readers will find a wide variety of literary styles and forms and a good breadth of theological perspectives. This anthology succeeds at the difficult task of hitting the rhythm of the Advent season's changing themes.

An accessible, lively presentation that makes for compelling as well as enlightening reading.
