Living the Christian Year

September 14, 2009

In his new book, Living the Christian Year, InterVarsity director of graduate and faculty ministries Bobby Gross opens to you—and opens you to—the liturgical year, helping you inhabit God’s Story every day.

Remembering God’s work, Christ’s death and resurrection, and the Spirit’s coming as you follow the liturgical calendar will change you, drawing you into deeper intimacy with God and pointing your attention to the work of the Father, Son and Spirit right now, in and around you. You’ll be reminded daily that your life is bigger than just you, that you are part of God’s huge plan that started before time and will continue into eternity.

Whether or not you’re familiar with the liturgical year, this book makes it easy to follow, offering the significance and history of each season, ideas for living out God’s Story in your own life, and devotions that follow the church calendar for each day of the year.

“Beautiful in its gentleness and humility, this book is a gift to Christians of all communions and denominations, for it deals with our beginnings and the originating, sacred rhythms from which we all come. Only Bobby Gross could have so gracefully opened the church’s liturgical calendar to all who wish to see, and only he could have laid so rich a feast of devotion as this for those who yearn to enter.”
