Christopher Ash has put together a wonderful resource for Advent. Engaging explorations of Luke’s account of the birth of Jesus, a prayer to pray, a hymn to sing (if you dare) and room to record your own observations. We tried them around the dinner table and they worked. Recommended.

A gem of a book: faithful to the text, sensitively applied, imaginatively illustrated, full of grace and wisdom, rich and deep in theology, and, most importantly, spiritually refreshing—it caused me to worship in my heart as I read.

John Samuel

Senior Minister, Duke Street Church, Richmond

Simply superb. A genuine model of Christian devotional writing—warm, enriching, and exciting application drawn from insightful expository and theological reflection on the biblical text. Each of these brief chapters is an absolute delight to read. This is joyful Christmastime reading for Christians of every age and experience. Very highly recommended.
