Recommendations

"These little daily Advent meditations, handwritten by John Piper, are short, but they contain the depth and richness of thought for which the author is now known. With joyful reverence, he guides us into the shrine of the Incarnation. As we linger at the source, in Bethlehem where the Son was born to us, we are prompted to become all the more aware of the torrents of love springing from his broken body at Calvary. If you want this Christmas season to be spiritually enriched, season it with thoughts from this book! »
