Every Valley: Advent with the Scriptures of Handel's Messiah by Handel

★★★★ ☐ The publisher has provided a copy for review.
This comes a bit late (or early) for the Christmas season, but I loved it: music and scripture are timeless and feed us year-round. The scriptures used in Handel's Messiah come alive in these 40 devotional meditations.

It was interesting to read the backgrounds and the theology surrounding the verses we sing or hear each year. Musicians and Handel fans will love it! I found rich nuggets to think about and will pick it up between seasons.

The reflections offer us hope and promise, that we are designed to live and delight in God's presence and provision. Worth putting on the book list for next Advent, for sure.
