Dawn from on High
John D. Alexander
In these inspiring and accessible meditations, John Alexander provides a theologically rich and biblically grounded journey through Advent, Christmastide, and the first days of Epiphanytide. Based on the eucharistic lectionary of The Episcopal Church, Father Alexander takes the reader into the heart of Advent's focus on "last things" and then the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. Preachers will find in this volume a useful resource for preparing their own sermons, but any Christian will benefit from these homilies as we seek a focus on the great mysteries of our salvation.
John D. Alexander has been rector of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Providence, Rhode Island, since 2000. He previously served parishes in Wayne, Pennsylvania, and Staten Island, New York. He currently serves as superior of the American Region of the Society of Mary, an international devotional society in the Anglo-Catholic tradition.
