This new book of Advent meditations by Fr. Mark Toups and published by Ascension Press is worth considering for use this Advent or in the future.
Sure I know Advent has already started and that I am late with a timely review.
The book starts with an introduction in how to use these meditations along with a link to RejoiceProgram.com where you can sign up to get links for weekly videos that supplement the material.
This follows the familiar format for books of this type. A page and a half of the actual meditations along with a couple of suggested scriptural readings. Capped off with a short prayerful summary.
I found the meditations to be worthwhile for both as a reflection for the day in Advent along with being a springboard to some further mental prayer. The scriptural suggestions are not just tagged on, but appropriate to the meditation. From the first meditation on, I found these to be focused and worth spending time on. Useful either as a short daily reflection or as a springboard to go farther.
I especially like the aesthetic layout of the book. The choice of colors, fonts, overall design, and some illustrations made reading this book pleasurable.
