Publisher's Description

In 1741, John Wesley preached his famous sermon titled "The Almost Christian" in which he encouraged people to follow Christ wholeheartedly. We should not be satisfied with being almost Christian but rather strive towards being altogether a Christian.

In this book, perfect for Advent, Magrey DeVega and other authors break down the barriers that prevent us from experiencing an "altogether" love, hope, joy, and peace in Christ in our lives and in the world around us. They demonstrate the promises God offers to us that make those longings a reality, inviting us to claim those promises for ourselves this Advent and celebrate an altogether Christmas.
