Glad and Golden Hours


Add to Wishlist

Tangible acts of feasting and celebrating have suffused Lanier Ivester's home all her life. But in the past decade, she's wrestled with profound losses that have reshaped the ways in which she approaches her calling to the place and the people around her.

Coexisting forces of great grief and great joy come together in this extraordinary book (lavishly illustrated by Jennifer Trafton), which not only reminds us of the inescapable presence of sorrow, but shows us how to celebrate and anticipate the return of glad and golden hours right here, right now.

Like Robert Farrar Capon's Supper of the Lamb, this is a book that far surpasses the trappings of a mere cookbook or a collection of craft projects. It's an embodiment of a rich theology of creation, of what it means to be human when everything is both falling apart and coming back together.

It's a companion that leads us through the seasons of Advent and Christmastide and into a better understanding of the Kingship of Christ and our invitation into the richness of the Feast to come.

By Lanier Ivester, Illustrated by Jennifer Trafton
