“These Advent devotions from the pen of John Piper may be brief, but you will find in them the depth and richness of thought that Piper is well-known for. With a sense of joyful reverence, he holds us by the hand and takes us into the inner sanctuary of the incarnation. As we pause at the fountainhead of the Son born to us in Bethlehem, we are primed to appreciate even more the gushing floods of love in his mangled form on Calvary. If you want your Christmas season to be spiritually enriched, marinate it with thoughts from this book!”

In these short, poignant devotions, John Piper lifts our gaze again and again to see Christmas as it really should be seen―as good news of great joy for you and for me. This book is an invitation to know the incarnate Son sent by the Father in the power of the Spirit.”
