In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the weeks leading up to Christmas, we sometimes forget what it's all about. These 29 daily Advent devotions help readers attend to the gospel story of Jesus in deeper, more meaningful ways. After reading the selected Scripture verse for the day, Bullis's short devotional reading will help you unpack deeper meanings of the text. Then, through guided reflection, prayer, and journaling, you'll engage in this time of holy waiting. Even those whose Christian faith traditions don't include celebrating Advent will find these devotions a way to combat the frantic consumer mentality of the Christmas season.
