I expected this book to focus more on why we celebrate Christmas but it was more of a summary of Jesus' life. I know Jesus is the reason for the season, but I wanted more thoughtful insights relating to his birth and the coming of his kingdom among men. It was still good reading though, and my husband who never reads the Bible or attends church seemed to look forward to me reading it at supper time. I gave the book to two neighbors who don't attend any church and I hope they are reading theirs as well. I think it does a good job of presenting stories of Christ without being too heavy.
The Advent devotional begins where most end.... with the birth of Jesus', and then takes the reader thoughtfully through significant events of Jesus' birth, teaching, life, death and beyond. Excellent food for thought and growth!
