    If you're like me, you can get so caught up with the busyness of Christmas that Christmas comes without much thought to what Christmas is really celebrating....Jesus. This book is an advent devotional that will help us keep Jesus as the "center and greatest treasure of our Advent" (location 57).

    I loved this devotional and I plan to reread it this Advent. It has a scripture and a short reading for each day. It only takes a few minutes to read an entry. They are very thought provoking. Many of them made me look at some aspect of the Christmas story in a different way. For instance, Piper writes about God moving Caesar Augustus to call for a census that would cause Mary and Joseph to journey to Bethlehem which in turn would fulfill prophecy. He writes that God is always working and turning the king's will to accomplish His eternal purposes. "He is a big God for little people, and we have great cause to rejoice that, unbeknownst to them, all the kings and presidents and premiers and chancellors and chiefs of the world follow the sovereign decrees of our father in heaven" (location 154). This was particularly comforting to me in this time of political upheaval. God is still and is always at work.

    Thank you to Crossway for providing me with a free e-copy of this book. I found it to be very helpful and I would highly recommend it. All opinions are my own.
