In 1993 Mark Vander Vennen, now Shalem’s Executive Director, co-authored a book of Advent meditations entitled “The Advent of Justice”. The devotional has recently been printed for a third time! Co-authors with Mark are noted Biblical scholars Sylvia Keesmaat (who also served as editor), Brian Walsh and Richard Middleton, with illustrations by Willem Hart. They and Mark are thrilled that this little book continues to have a life and be in demand.
The back cover states, “In this book of reflections, four friends come together to lead us more deeply into Advent as a time of profound hope for the coming of God’s good kingdom of shalom while also a time of lament and anguish in the face of injustice.”
