The Dawning of Indestructible Joy by John Piper


This small book has a great goal: to keep you focused on Christ during Advent. Those days leading up to Christmas have become hectic, filled with shopping, cooking, and preparations to celebrate. But what are we celebrating?

Here, John Piper provides short devotional readings, from December 1 through Christmas Day, to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas. The birth of Christ was not an isolated event. It was the turning point of history. It was the beginning of a new day. For the believer, it was the beginning of an indestructible joy.

The reader will no doubt find hope, peace, and joy in these pages, as we are led to focus on the work of Christ. The final section of the book is a short sermon on Christmas. Short, yet powerful.

I highly recommend this Advent devotional.
