Advent Book Review

The Christmas season has passed, but I wanted to share some thoughts I had on one of the Advent Readings that I used this last year; Come, Let Us Adore Him by Paul David Tripp. I used this book personally this year, rather than with my family–though I expect I will do so in the future.m55669

If you had 140 characters to express a profound truth about Christmas, what would you say? Paul Tripp answers that question in this book. Each days reading begins with a “tweet”  which serves as a general summary statement or truth that is extracted from the overall narrative of Jesus’s incarnation and makes a quick application of that truth. Tripp then spends a few pages explaining this statement before offering a passage of Scripture for further study and reflection. This is followed by a one-word theme that encapsulates the whole day’s thoughts. Each day’s reading concludes with a paragraph long suggestion for how parents can further use the reading with their children.

Unlike most Advent resources, the publication has a dated reading for all 31 days in December. It also includes a Scripture Index which can prove helpful.  On the whole, this is a great book and was helpful to me this last Christmas season.

  1. I’m a big fan of his books. I am using one of his devotional books this year. I will have to check out the advent one for Christmas time.
