All I Really Want: Readings for a Modern Christmas


Advent is our favorite season of the church year.   We love the time of watching, waiting, and hoping with God.   Know what we don’t love?  The lack of really good, accessible Advent devotionals for those of us who are looking for a quick but meaningful daily practice.

Enter: Rev. Quinn Caldwell and his fantastic, pithy, funny, faithful work, “All I Really Want: Readings for a Modern Christmas.” 

Quinn’s writing leaves us laughing, crying, feeling challenged, and spiritually fed.  He balances sweet stories with seasonally appropriate snark and infuses it all with rich theology.  The readings are small morsels designed to be snacked upon twice daily to help remind us of the true reason for the season.  It’s rare with an ever-growing book list that we read something more than once, but Quinn’s devotional resource is something we're getting super excited about picking back up this year because every year we read it we glean something new to take on our Advent journey. 

So, if you and your church can handle inclusive language and having your theology challenged in witty new ways, pick up a copy (or 10!) of “All I Really Want” by Quinn "The AWESOME" Caldwell. 

Brave risk takers who stand on the side of hope, peace, joy, and love, enter here!  But, beware: it's not your grandmother's Advent devotional book (but, something tells us, she'd love it too!)!
