There are only two places where the powerful and great in this world lose their courage, tremble in the depths of their souls, and become truly afraid. These are the manger and the cross of Jesus Christ.

No priest, no theologian stood at the cradle of Bethlehem. And yet, all Christian theology finds its beginnings in the miracle of miracles, that God became human.

These stirring words are among forty devotions that guide and inspire readers as they move thematically through the weeks of Advent and Christmas, from waiting and mystery to redemption, incarnation, and joy. Supplemented by an informative introduction, short excerpts from Bonhoeffer's letters, and passages from his Christmas sermons, these daily devotions are timeless and moving reminders of the true gift of Christmas.

    " I really enjoyed this devotional. The devotions were very brief, but rich. I found myself reflecting on them for the rest of the day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 NC | 1/24/2013

    " This is a challenging devotional. Take the time to let the words sink in. You will find gratitude for your own situation in these readings regardless of what it might be. Bonhoeffer is a truly remarkable man. I wish that there were more like him in this world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam Godbold | 12/3/2012

    " Excellent read throughout Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany... A healthy dose of Bonhoeffer, some of the writers he greatly influenced, and the Scriptures for each day of the Advent season, the Twelve Days of Christmas, and Epiphany... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul | 3/5/2012

    " I don't think this was a good book to listen to as an audiobook. I craved the written text to underline and re-read and to get a sense of structure. Even though they were short discrete devotions, the audio was a hard format to read this in. I seem to think the hardcopy would be more beneficial. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxanne | 1/19/2012

    " Really enjoyed this devotional for Advent 2012. It is written to work no longer when Advent begins and has devotionals through Epiphany (January 6). Short readings for each day, but packed with powerful thoughts for this blessed season. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 12/9/2011

    " Short, concise, but deliciously deep, devotional for the Season of Advent & Christmas taken from some of Bonhoeffer's reflections from prison. "
