A Shaking Reality: Daily Reflections for Advent


Out of stock



“Bishop Peter Price draws from his wide experience, personal encounters and reflections in this gem of an Advent book. We’re invited to refresh our thinking around the challenging Advent themes of penitence, judgment, hope and redemption to find inspiration and courage for these uncertain times in which we live. A reading and prayer for each day; designed with busy people in mind, will lead to the rediscovery of joy in the Christ who comes to us.”

The Very Reverend Nicola Sullivan
Dean of Southwell

“Peter Price gently, but with great firmness, calls us to be shaken by Jesus, to have our senses stirred, to be awakened to the power of the birth of Jesus, to hear the call to celebration and the warning of judgement. It is an eye-opening book and I commend it warmly.”

The Archbishop of Canterbury

Inspired by Father Alfred Delp, who wrote a meditation titled The Shaking Reality of Advent’ while imprisoned by the Nazis during WWII, Bishop Peter B. Price has written a series of reflections and prayers to be read on each day of Advent. Each reflection is written that we may be `shaken and brought to a realisation of our selves’, in order to gain a new understanding of God’s promise of redemption and release.
