Mark’s #52 – Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus edited by Nancy Guthrie

This is an Advent book made up of 22 daily readings to prepare your heart and mind to “experience the peace and the promise of Christmas.”  Nancy Guthrie culled together various Christmas related writings and sermons by faithful men and women from the Protestant Reformed tradition both past and present.  There were contributions from the likes of George Whitfield, Martin Luther, John Piper, Tim Keller Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, Augustine, Calvin, J.I. Packer, Joni Eareckson Tada, etc… If you know anything about theses people, you know that each reading was rich in meaning and theology (this is not a Chicken Soup for Your Christmas Soul kind of book).

This was the first year that I’ve read a daily advent reader, and I found the experience very enriching for my mind and spirit as Christmas approached.  I plan on reading this short book (140 pages) again next year.

Merry Christmas!
