Christmas is the season most difficult to grasp and under-stand in all its spiritual richness. The sentimentality and commercialism that dominate the season tend to obscure the profound mystery at its heart: the Incarnation. God With Us provides the perfect way to slow down and reconnect with the liturgical and sacramental traditions that illuminate the meaning of Christmas and the Incarnation and bring it down to earth. Featuring daily meditations for the complete sea-sons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, the contributors offer a tapestry of reflection, Scripture, prayer and history. God With Us - which has sold more than 25,000 copies in its original, illustrated, $30 edition - will make anyone's journey to the stable in Bethlehem and the child in the manger utterly unforgettable. This new "Reader's Edition" is de-signed to make the book more affordable, able to reach an even wider cross-section of readers.
