Product Description

"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."
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer

As you may realize from reading the above quotes, reading devotional literature by Dietrich Bonhoeffer is not an exercise in protecting the comforting reassurances of our faith. Rather, God in in the Manger is about opening up the truly disruptive and unsettling claims of the gospel; claims that mark the very heart of the Christmas story.

This Christmas, step out of a warm and comforting Christmas and embrace the unsettling realities that Christmas brings: waiting on Christ the promise; redemption; incarnation; and joy. Bonhoeffer knows these Advent themes from both his personal experience and his deeply Christ centered theology, will you walk with him through Advent with him this Christmas?

Devotions are 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.

Publisher's Description

These Advent and Christmas reflections of Bonhoeffer flew from his prison cell, flung open the doors of hope, and sailed heavenward as heart-wrenching prayers, prayers from a condemned man, prayers from a hopeful man, prayers from a man who embodied what it means to pray 'May your kingdom come.' This will be my Advent and Christmas book.
Scot McKnight, Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University, and author of The Jesus Creed and The Blue Parakeet

These forty stirring devotions will 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 Bonhoeffer's Christmas sermons, these daily reflections are timeless and moving reminders of the true meaning of Christmas. Now repackaged in a beautiful hardback edition, it makes the perfect holiday gift.

Also available: God Is on the Cross: Reflections on Lent and Easter.

    Bonhoeffer's deep and reverent reflections on Christ and on a life of faithful discipleship are sure to enhance and deepen your own observance of Advent. Each day's meditation contains a longer reflection from Bonhoeffer, a shorter excerpt (many from his correspondence), and a scripture passage. A wonderful addition to your Advent devotional practice.

    I have always appreciated the writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer which is the reason I was interested in purchasing this collection. I received the book prior to the advent season but have already read several entries. I like the layout and the fact that there are devotions through Epiphany. I am sure that I will cherish this book each advent season.
