Advent Book study

What Book?


The Anticipated Christ by Pastor Brian Zahnd.  The book is divided up into short chapters to be read daily through the Advent and Christmas seasons (Chapter one is the First day of Advent and the final chapter falls on Epiphany, January 6).


Who can join?

  • All are welcome to form or join a small group.
  • A small group meeting guide sheet will be given to each group.  
  • You're welcome to meet at any time convenient for you.


Why should I do the book study?


In the words of Pastor Brian Zahnd in the intro of his book: "I encourage you to read The Anticipated Christ as it is intended - don't fly through it in a day or two. Instead, read each meditation on the indicated day and read it slowly. The demand of the secular "Christmas season" is to be in a great hurry, but the aim of Advent is to instill a quiet slowness into our soul"(The Anticipated Christ, p.3).
