Publisher's Summary

There are only two places where the powerful and great in this world lose their courage, tremble in the depths of their souls, and become truly afraid. These are the manger and the cross of Jesus Christ.

No priest, no theologian stood at the cradle of Bethlehem. And yet, all Christian theology finds its beginnings in the miracle of miracles, that God became human.

These stirring words are among forty devotions that guide and inspire readers as they move thematically through the weeks of Advent and Christmas, from waiting and mystery to redemption, incarnation, and joy. Supplemented by an informative introduction, short excerpts from Bonhoeffer's letters, and passages from his Christmas sermons, these daily devotions are timeless and moving reminders of the true gift of Christmas.

Life-changing

This book changes me profoundly. Each day I heard more deeply how God loves me, and grew in a strange desire to serve Him not out of compulsion, but in response.

Excellent!

This is an excellent advent devotional and a good introduction to the works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Pithy thoughts for Advent

Astute reflections on waiting from someone languishing away in a nazi prison camp, while his betrothed and his family awaited his release.
