This is the third time I've used this book for Advent devotionals. I gave away my first copy so had to purchase another one. The devotions are brief put full of deep meaning. Dr. Miller does a great job of adding fresh insights to the very familiar Christmas story, helping us to make practical applications to our lives today.

Unlike many liturgical Advent books, I looked forwarad to reading this every single day. I was so sorry when the Advent season was over! Written from the perspective of a large variety of Advent characters, no two days are alike, but every day is a thoughtful one. I recommend this book to anyone who is tired of the hooplah of Christmas and longs for the peacefulness of Christ's birth.

We read it as a whole family (including my father-in law, who came each night, although we never expected him too) and it helped us keep our minds on Christ thoughout this crazy season and what the reason for the season really is. This was the first Christmas without my mother-in law who had only passed 2 months earlier and Dad was dreading Christmas. Going through this book, helped us to refocuse and remind us what hope we have, thanks to our Creator's sacrifice, so we ended up having a great Christmas - thanks

This was truly a great way to stay spiritually connected to the real reason for Christmas. This is a deep devotional though it will only take about 5 minutes. It helps develop a great mindset for the Christmas season and keeping focused on Christ.

I have only just read the first two days of this book, but it is definitely not what I was expecting from the introduction that was viewable befor pe purchasing. The introduction shows a conversation between the angels Gabriel & Michael in the moments before Jesus was born. I was looking for an advent devotional that would appeal to my younger kids and from the preview, this appeared to be it.

After reading through the devotionals for the first two days, it is evident that this is geared more for teens & adults. I am sure I will enjoy reading it myself, but it just isn't what I thought it would be and is definitely over my younger children's heads.

These daily readings have enriched my observance of the Advent season. Calvin Miller handles familiar Biblical passages with warmth, and in a way that is conducive to fresh insight. I will use this book again, I am sure.

These daily readings have focused my thoughts on the real meaning of Christmas this Advent Season. Each daily devotional gives scripture readings, thoughts, and a prayer to guide your own meditations.

This advent reading was exceptional for its focus on Christ and the reason we celebrate this time of year. It helped me to stay focused on what really matters most.
