Pursuing the Christ is a 31-day devotional for the Christmas season. Beginning on December 1st and ending on the 31st, this Christmas devotional is rich in scripture that will put you in touch with the true meaning of Christmas, as well as help you to stay focused during a time of year when it is so easy to lose sight of that which we try to so hard to stay focused on: Christ.

Jennifer Kennedy Dean puts these concepts into easy to read and easy to understand words, bringing to light new ways to look at scripture we have been reading for years. With her thoughts and word illustrations, this will be a book you will want to pick up year after year.

Each day has a morning and an evening reading, as well as a thought for the day. If you are strapped for time some days, you can just pick out the thought for the day and not feel as if you have missed an entire day of reading. This will pick up just in time for the Advent season and finish up on New Year's Eve.

I hope you enjoy this book! With Christmas around the corner, I wish you a blessed one!

My husband and I were looking for a devotional especially for the month of December. We wanted to keep Christ as the central focus throughout the holiday season. Pursuing the Christ definitely fit the bill.

Featuring morning and evening readings for 31 days this book provides a peaceful escape from the insanity that often threatens to rob us of our focus during Christmas. The writings are not too short or too long. Each daily writing ends with a focused thought. They often stayed with me throughout the day.

Jennifer Kennedy Dean is an extremely anointed writer. Some devotional books have "hit and miss" days. Pursuing the Christ is not one of those kinds of books. Each meditation was extremely thought-provoking drawing the reader to deep reflection.

I highly recommend this small but powerful book for all those who are "pursuing the Christ." It will assist you on your journey. It will also make a wonderful gift for friends.

[I was provided a copy of this book by New Hope Publishers. The opinions expressed are soley mine.]

I bought one of these wonderful books last Christmas and my husband and I used it during the month of December. It totally changed our Christmas season! Jennifer Kennedy Dean's wonderful book of morning and evening prayers for December helped us to really experience the true meaning of Christmas and to concentrate on the peace of this season. I've also referrred back to these prayers throughout the year. I've now purchased these to give to all of my friends for this Christmas. Can't recommend this little gem enough!
