About the Author

Nicholas Holtam retired as Bishop of Salisbury and the Church of England's lead bishop for the environment in 2021. He is the author of The Art of Worship: Paintings, Prayers, and Readings for Meditation and A Room with a View: Ministry with the World at Your Door. Sleepers Wake! is his first Advent book.


Shot through with hope.--Stephen Cottrell, Archbishop of York
Fine and pertinent meditations on Christian spirituality from the former lead bishop on the environment . . . This is a book to use seriously, prayerfully, and determinedly during Advent.--Stephen Cottrell, Archbishop of York
Like Bach's great Wachet auf! chorale, this walk through the weeks of Advent is both a carefully constructed meditation, and an unsettling call to action. In the face of climate catastrophe, Nicholas Holtam invites us to pause in front of paintings that challenge us with the scale of our responsibilities, and reveal the grace we are promised if we tackle them. Poetry and music, painting and personal recollections combine in a new version of the Advent call to change our lives - while we still can. In Bach's words: Wake up!--Christiana Figueres, Head of UN Climate Change Convention, 2010-2016
