Author Bio

Nancy Guthrie has a passion for sharing God’s Word through her growing national and international Bible-teaching ministry. She has worked in the Christian publishing industry for more than two decades and is the author of Holding On to Hope, The One-Year Book of Hope, and Hoping for Something Better.

Publisher Description

Editor Nancy Guthrie wanted more than vague inspiration and interesting anecdotes when she began her search for an Advent anthology. She wanted a reflective book of Advent readings that would help her to pause---amid the purchasing of presents, attending of parties, and planning of travel---and consider the riches of Christ come to earth.

Guthrie sought a book that brought together the best pieces by trusted authors and pastors who hold a high view of Scripture and who would show her the incarnation in the context of God’s unfolding plan of redemption. So when she could not find such a book in the vast Christian marketplace, she embarked on what she calls a “sacred adventure” and compiled it herself.

Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus is an anthology of Advent readings collected from the writings and sermons of 22 classic and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers. This special volume draws from the works and sermons of classic theologians such as Whitefield, Luther, Spurgeon, and Augustine and from leading contemporary communicators such as Tim Keller, John Piper, Ligon Duncan, Randy Alcorn, John MacArthur, Francis Schaeffer, R. C. Sproul, and Joni Eareckson Tada to help readers enter into the wonder of Jesus’ incarnation and birth.

Each essay in this solidly biblical anthology expounds on a particular aspect of the Christmas story and includes the appropriate Scripture passage from the ESV Bible. Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus is sure to awaken your heart to a fresh experience of the coming of Jesus each and every Christmas season.

    A great compilation of advent sermons and devotions. My only complaint is that there were not enough for every day in Advent.
