Can anything new be said about Christ's incarnation? Actually, a lot of old things that we may have forgotten! Like a multifaceted diamond, the question Why did the eternal Son become man? admits a variety of answers. Probing some of those with wisdom bathed in the Scriptures is what makes this devotional guide so rich. It will be part of our family's Advent devotions and, I hope, a source of blessing for many others. --Michael Horton, professor of theology at Westminster Seminary California and cohost of the White Horse Inn
From the Inside Flap
When thinking about Christ's birth, we often focus our attention on Luke's detailed gospel account. But to appreciate the main point of the story that the eternal Son of God assumed our flesh-and-blood human nature we need to learn from the rest of the Bible why Christ came to earth. Why did Christ come? In this book, thirty-one thoughtful meditations answer this vital question, and the answers encourage us to celebrate Christ's birth more deeply, see more clearly how it is connected with the rest of His ministry, and recognize its importance for our lives.

Geared to answer the question, "Why did Jesus come to earth?", each day's teaching focuses on one answer to that question. Some of the questions included are, "To Do the Will of the Father," "To Bring Light to a Dark World," and "To Bring Judgment." The goal of the authors is, "That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith..."(Eph. 3:17-19).
In addition to Scripture, an array of sources are drawn upon, including many of the Early Church Fathers, Charles Spurgeon and C. S. Lewis. This work feels like a devotional dip into theology; thoughtful and refreshing. A book with deep roots and modern touches.
I look forward to rereading this book throughout the Advent season.
Christ was born with a death sentence already hanging over him at the manger. That thought should bring us some gravity as we reflect on our Lord’s advent. But it should also help us see the utter resolve of Christ to redeem His people.
These meditations are arranged in 31 chapters, each about 4-5 pages long -- perfect for the busy Christmas season.
