The Meaning Is in the Waiting, by Paula Gooder


A simple but effective book on Advent. Gooder breaks the chapters up into manageable sections (4 chapters--one for each week of Advent--and 6 sections to a chapter). It's short enough to fit into even the busiest schedule, and provides a much-needed reminder of the benefits of waiting (a great counterpoint to the desire for instant gratification that characterizes our culture, particularly at Christmastime). Waiting on God is something all of us need to do better, myself most of all. This could very easily become an annual Advent read for me.
