"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."
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.
