Ann Voscamp is a poignant, relatable author. Her book follows the full advent of the coming of Christ from the roots of the first sin-infected humans to the coming of God who in-fleshes Himself in order to die the death necessary to redeem this broken world and sin-deadened humanity. She follows the Biblical narrative of the whole story of man's creation, fall, and redemption. It is Christmas at it's fullest and I highly recommend it. I use it with my students to track Christmas from the very beginning.
Received this book as a gift this year and was so blessed by the content that I bought 6 copies for Christmas gifts. It is an advent book but would be an excellent read anytime of the year as a reminder of God's great love for us.
