Light to the Darkness by Katerina Katsarka Whitley

Book Description

Light to the Darkness is a fresh interpretation of the well-loved Advent tradition of Lessons and Carols. Replacing the usual scriptural readings from the Old and New Testaments are first-person dramatic monologues based on these and other passages of scripture. Special emphasis is given to the role of the prophets, pointing the way to the Messiah and offering guidance to the Hebrew people, while providing very contemporary guidance for the 21st-century. With a reading for each day of Advent, churches can choose pieces for their services of Lessons and Carols, while individuals can use the book for private devotions. Suggested music for these services is also included, encompassing a broad range of selections to accommodate parishes' needs and abilities. Katerina Whitley, a native of Thessaloniki, Greece, is an adjunct instructor at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. She is the author of Speaking for Ourselves: Voices of Biblical Women; Seeing for Ourselves: Biblical Women Who Met Jesus; and Walking the Way of Sorrows. She lives in Vilas, North Carolina.
