Introduction to the Christian Year

by John D. Witvliet

Summary: The Christian year divides the calendar and leads Christians on an annual cycle of memory and anticipation through key events in Jesus' life.

Key Points:
. The Christian year is anchored in the main salvation history events described in the New
. The Christian year also provides a way of understanding the Christian life.
. In the past generation, many Christians in many traditions have recovered the Christian year as a basic framework for organizing their common prayer and worship.
