If the gospel is to be heard in all its fullness, we require more than just a selection of the favourite stories that suit our temperament and churchmanship. The liturgical year imposes the godly discipline we need by leading us through every aspect of Jesus' life and work. Throughout the Christian year, Colin Morris's reflections draw our attention continually to issues of God's justice and God's rule in the world. As the seasons pass from Advent through Christmas, Epiphany, Lent and Easter to Pentecost, we read and reflect on the events of Jesus' life. Each reflection is short and can be used as an inspiration for preaching as well as for individuals seeking to read something each week relating our lives today to the Bible. Some of the reflections were Thoughts for the Day on BBC Radio 4's Today programme; all are provocative and broaden our view of the world.
