informative, challenging to usual conventional thinking and teaching about Advent, while encouraging not only preparation for Christmas but leading to reverent worship of Christ.

This book was give to me as a gift, and it made this last advent season one of depth and beauty. I love the ageless comments from all Christian history, and walks of life. It forces one to look beyond the superficiality of this society, and invite His Advent.
