Summary

"What a beautiful, genuine, moving book. Reminds us of what's important in life. Dip into this, and get strength for the day. For when you can feel the darkness, use this book as light." (Jeremy Vine journalist and author)

A time for reflection

Christmas should be a time of peace, togetherness, and celebration; yet it can leave all too many of us feeling overwhelmed by loneliness, stress and worry.

In This Light is a timely collection of thoughtful meditations. The Most Revd Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, leads contributions from celebrities, business leaders, athletes, politicians and others, whose names you might not know but whose stories you will come to love. 

Alan Titchmarsh, Sally Philips, Bear Grylls, Afua Hirsch, Bishop Michael Curry, Secretary John Kerry, Dany Cotton, Elif Shafak, Jo Malone, and Sally Lloyd-Jones - among others - offer their thoughts and insights as we reflect on this time of year.

In a world that often seems in turmoil, these personal essays invite us to remember and rejoice in the true, timeless spirit of Christmas.

The Archbishop of Canterbury will donate all royalties received from this book, in equal parts, to support these wonderful organisations:

Caring for Ex-Offenders, part of the ministry of Holy Trinity Brompton

Equal Justice Initiative

The Melanesian Mission
