Description
For many people the chaos of 50-hour workweeks and the demands of family have created a hectic, routine-driven life. As an escape from that conveyor-belt life, Christopher Hill here reintroduces us to the cyclical and spiritual Christian liturgical year, uncovering the poetic, symbolic, folkloric, psychological, and mystical nature of the Christian calendar. After evoking the experience of the seasons and their festivals, Hill shows how they developed in history, theology, and folklore, and offers specific suggestions for participating more deeply in the seasons, encouraging us to practice festival as a form of high fun or reverential play.

"Three of the 12 chapters of this illustrated guide deal with Advent, Christmas and Epiphany, while the others tackle different days of the Christian year, including Easter and Pentecost. Especially interesting are the chapters on various lesser-known holy days like Michaelmas, All Saints' Day, Candlemas, the Feast of St. Mary Magdalene and the Feast of the Transfiguration. Hill has his reasons for wanting to resurrect the rhythms of the liturgical calendar: 'We are all Bob Cratchits these days, chained in our money-changing cubbyholes for hours that even Ebenezer Scrooge would hesitate to demand.' This book is a call for experiencing sacred time, and recovering the drama of incarnation, liberation and rebirth."Publishers Weekly
