bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Reminding us of our need for a SaviorNovember 2, 2017bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This is not your typical Christmas devotional, full of warm stories. Tripp wants us to be once again gripped by the truth of the advent, to have our attentions focused once again on the reason Jesus came to earth.
Tripp reminds us that Jesus offers us the only solution to our problem. We are separated from God. We exist in the brokenness of sin. We must understand the seriousness of the problem to appreciate the glorious nature of the solution, our Savior. We need to be captured once again by the amazing truth that God has not left us in our tragic state. Christmas is a revelation of God's abundant mercy, grace and love.
Tripp writes about Jesus coming as King, rescuing us from the bondage of our self rule. He came as Counselor, rescuing us from the foolishness of our sin. Jesus surrendered Himself to God's plans, an example for us to follow.
There is so much more to Jesus' birth than decorations, gifts, and food. This book helps readers remember the life changing and history making aspects of Christmas. This book reminds us of the reality of our needing to be rescued by Jesus.
An added feature of the book is a way for parents to use each devotion with children.
Food for thought: "...it makes no sense to celebrate the birth of Jesus while denying the reason for his birth and your need for what his life and death offers." (Loc 844/1261).
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
Reenie5 Stars Out Of 5fabulous devotional to help us remember what Christmas is all aboutOctober 30, 2017ReenieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am very excited about and thankful for this book. Tripp writes, "Familiarity tends to rob us of our wonder" (location 38). And that is what happens with Christmas. We lose the wonder of God becoming flesh and coming to earth in human form. We can go through the whole Christmas season without thinking about what it's really all about.
This book can change that. It includes 31 daily advent devotionals that start with a tweet that is fleshed out. The meditations are easily understood and full of gospel truth. There are Scripture verses for further study and a few questions to talk about with your kids. It made me think of things in different ways and restored my amazement at the Christmas story. I can't wait to read it again this December with my family.
I would HIGHLY recommend this book. It is powerful because it reveals the amazing power and grace on display at Christmas. The Christmas story confronts us with the depth of our need for help (location 841) and the incredible help that has come.
Thank you to Crossway for providing me with a free e-copy of this book. I was not required to leave a positive review. All opinions are my own.

I am going to use it this season. I am going to use this book this year. it has a sentence that is about a song, then he tells the wonderful story of JESUS - the author wants you to reawaken in the LORD - to be in awe - and you are - he tells you things in a way like I haven't heard in a while - he also gives you scripture to read to back up what he is saying - and that my friends is the most important thing that I can teach you myself - that is what my father - a pastor taught me - he said - do not take what anyone - no matter who it is - you pastor - your friend - someone who gives you a word of knowledge - whoever that tells you anything - do not take it at face value - you ALWAYS make sure it is backed up by Scripture - ALWAYS - and this author does. Good Book. I received a copy of this book from the Publisher and Netgalley; all the opinions in this review are all my own.
