The Christmas season is often one of the busiest and most stressful times of the year. It's all too easy to lose sight of what makes it special. Helping us refocus on what's truly important, John Piper leads us through twenty-five short meditations on Advent. The devotionals – drawn from his extensive teaching and preaching ministry – lead readers to ponder afresh the birth of Jesus, Israel's long-awaited Messiah and the Saviour of the world. Reflecting on several scriptural texts, this accessible volume aims to direct individuals, families and churches to the most glorious dawning of indestructible joy the world has ever seen: the incarnation of the Son of God.
