Daily devotions for Advent. This is a book of daily readings for every day in December with discussion starters and Bible verses for each day. There is an area to record comments and questions at the end of each section to personalize the book. Also included are several popular Christmas carols with music and lyrics and explanations on the history and context of the songs.
I enjoyed this book because of the ability of the author to bring to life the Christmas season in an interesting collection of writings that could easily stand on their own. I particularly enjoyed learning the history of certain Christmas carols that I was not aware of.
I would recommend this book to families looking to remember and emphasize the real Reason for Christmas. Some families are so busy during this time of year as the author says: "The good things can squeeze out the Best thing." And the best thing is to remember why we celebrate Christmas in the first place. The only drawback I had found was that this is a very small book, and those that are visually challenged may have a hard time reading it's fine print. Although it's size would make a great stocking stuffer! Published by Tyndale.
I have received a copy of this book at no charge by the publisher.
