Product Description

"There are only two places where the powerful and great in this world lose their courage, tremble in the depths of their souls, and become truly afraid. These are the manger and the cross of Jesus Christ."

"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."
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer

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.

Author Bio

Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of the most well-known and beloved theologians of the twentieth century. Renowned for his classic works Life Together and The Cost of Discipleship, Bonhoeffer's legacy took on another dimension when he was imprisoned and executed for participating in a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

Editorial Reviews

"These Advent and Christmas reflections of Bonhoeffer flew from his prison cell, flung open the doors of hope, and sailed heavenward as heart-wrenching prayers, prayers from a condemned man, prayers from a hopeful man, prayers from a man who embodied what it means to pray 'May your kingdom come.' This will be my Advent and Christmas book." Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University, and author of The Jesus Creed and The Blue Parakeet
