"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.

Perfect for anytime,
We listened to this audio book God is in the Manger, as part of Our morning spiritual studies. And it just happened that we received this invitation to listen to this audiobook at the time of Christmas 2012. We enjoyed the thoughts it brought to our minds, and will want to listen again, anytime.

Great devotional for Christmas
God in the Manger by Dietrich Bonhoeffer was narrated by Arthur Morey who did a very good job. This is an outstanding devotional book for reading during the Christmas season when we need our thoughts to be on the real meaning of Christmas. While I did enjoy the audio book I feel that I would have gotten even more from the devotionals if I had been reading a printed book rather than listening to the audio book. Since the book is made up of excerpts from sermons, letters, and other writings, I found it somewhat hard to follow as it was being read.

I would recommend this book but in printed form rather than audio.

I received this audiobook free from christianaudio Reviewers Program in exchange for posting a honest review.

Insightful and Deep Reflections for Advent
I've listened to the first three weeks of these devotionals; they've helped me to pause and reflect on the depths of what God has done in sending his Son. Besides Bonhoeffer, the words of other great authors like Brennan Manning and Eugene Peterson are heard. If you've felt rushed this Christmas, I highly recommend this audio book.

Heart preperation for busy people...
God Is In The Manger- This FREE audiobook is loaded with scriptural truth and reflections on the Advent Season. It was written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Much of it was written while he was being held in a Nazi prison prior to his execution. The depth of Bonhoeffer's understanding of the condition of the human heart and our need for the good news of Jesus Christ is unparalleled. Heart preperation for busy people and the joy of knowing God in The Manger! I will be listening to this more than once.

Great!
This audiobook is perfect for the Advent/Christmas/Epiphany season. The narrator has a nice reading voice that is easy to listen to. The brief devotionals are just right for starting the day and giving something to think about as we prepare for the holidays.

Good Christmas devotional
While this recording of God in the Manger is well done and the content is very good, I think I would recommend the printed book more highly. I don't find that devotionals work very well in audio format since most listeners will not focus the same way as readers and because they will not listen to one reading and then meditate on it, but will instead simply listen to the next reading and the next. The book has much to commend it as a series of meditations for Advent and the twelve days of Christmas that came from letters, sermons, and other writings of Bonhoeffer and a few modern writers.
