Item Description...
Overview
In short meditations for all the days of Advent plus Christmas Day, Melchiorre reflects his passionate understanding of Jesus. Each day's meditation is based on a portion of scripture included in Handel's Messiah. The mediations call attention to the prophetic understanding of Christianity. Melchiorre invities us to comfort the old, the weak, the marginalized. He reminds us of the relevance of the statement: The work of the Messiah always has and always will be to comfort the afflicted--and to afflict the comfortable. Using the words of the prophet Isaiah, Melchiorre reminds us that the Messiah will exalt every valley, bring every mountain low, straighten the crooked paths, and smooth over the rough roads.

Publishers Description
Journalist Jim Melchiorre began listening to a recording of Handel's oratorio Messiah as a way to avoid being swept away by consumerism at Christmas. He found familiar music and text a source of comfort and inspiration, a way to find solace in the midst of much seasonal busyness. He also read the scriptures on which the great oratorio is based. He came to fresh understandings of the prophetic mission of the Christ. In short meditations for all the days of Advent plus Christmas Day, Melchiorre reflects a passionate understanding of Jesus. Each day's meditation is based on a portion of scripture included in Handel's Messiah. The meditations call attention to the prophetic understanding of Christianity. Melchiorre invites us to comfort the old, the weak, the marginalized.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Christmas Spirituality!  Nov 12, 2003
What a nice book this is! Melchiorre helps move us through and beyond the commercialism of the Christmas season to a sense of Christmas as a time to reach out to others in service as well as to reach out to God in prayer.

Melchiorre connects Bible passages with real life. I appreciate his insights into life in the city. I also appreciate the way he connects these Bible passages and contemporary reflections with the traditional music of Christmas. I've listened to Handel's Messiah, but always that music has been tied to sentimentality. After reading this book, I will hear that music from the perspective of a great incarnational faith rather than simple traditionalism.

This simple book has a great depth of spirituality to it!
