Westminster John Knox Press God Is in the Manger: Reflections on Advent and Christmas

Now repackaged in a beautiful hardback edition, Dietrich Bonhoeffer's (1906-1945) God Is In the Manger is a wonderful devotional to use during the Advent season for quiet meditations on the true meaning of Christmas. His writings have been arranged thematically (Waiting, Mystery, Redemption, Incarnation), one for each day of the week, and continues through the Twelve Days of Christmas and Epiphany. You'll also find an informative introduction on Bonhoeffer's life, excerpts from his letters, and passages from his Christmas sermons.

Bonhoeffer's deep and reverent reflections on Christ and on a life of faithful discipleship are sure to enhance and deepen your own observance of Advent. Each day's meditation contains a longer reflection from Bonhoeffer, a shorter excerpt (many from his correspondence), and a scripture passage. A wonderful addition to your Advent devotional practice.

I have always appreciated the writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer which is the reason I was interested in purchasing this collection. I received the book prior to the advent season but have already read several entries. I like the layout and the fact that there are devotions through Epiphany. I am sure that I will cherish this book each advent season.
