Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus: Experiencing the Peace and Promise of Christmas
Between purchasing presents and planning travel, enjoying holiday pageants and attending parties, it is all too easy for Christmas to sneak up on people and crowd out a quiet anticipation of the season's truths. So when editor Nancy Guthrie decided she wanted a reflective book of Advent readings that would help her pause and consider the riches of Christ come to earth, she embarked on what she calls “a sacred adventure,“ putting together such a collection herself.
The result—this special volume—draws from the works and sermons of classic theologians such as Whitefield, Calvin, Luther, Spurgeon, and Augustine, and from leading contemporary communicators such as John Piper, J.
