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.  With an ever-growing book list, it’s rare that we read something more than once, but Quinn’s devotional resource is something we’re looking forward to picking back up, because every year we read it we glean something new. 

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 the amazing Quinn Caldwell. 

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