Amazing Advent inspiration!
"It happened in a city. Not in Narnia. Not in Middle-earth. Not in a galaxy far, far away. It happened in a city about 7,000 miles away from Minneapolis. The city still exists today.... The city's name is Bethlehem."

John Piper shares, each day of advent, about the JOY of Christmas, and the true message behind Jesus' birth and life. This is the perfect read during December, and I certainly enjoyed it myself. Each day gave me a good 'seed' to ponder about, and my thoughts would often return to the little teaching at other points in the day. Overall, I enjoyed this book very much, and will probably reread it again some year in the future.

The Meaning Of Christmas
The Dawning of Indestructible Joy by John Piper is a short devotional book meant to be used in the days leading up to Christmas in December. It contains a short passage and discussion for each of the 24 days leading up to the big day itself and aims to cover the significance and importance that Christmas has to believers.

Although short, it contains a wealth of information on why the Christmas season is so important and why Christians should remember exactly why Jesus Christ came to earth all those years ago. It is presented in small chunks, so it can easily be incorporated into daily devotionals or as a short message to start the day.

I listened to this audio book during August, so the contents weren't totally applicable but I am bound to revisit it at Christmas time as it contains a lot of knowledge and insight about the events surrounding Jesus' birth in a manager.

The narrator was very good – he has a strong, commanding voice and helped to communicate the text very efficiently.

This book would be a great devotional to use during the Advent season when the world's attention is on presents, holidays and trees to refocus on the real meaning behind the season.

This audio book was gifted as a part of the christianaudio Reviewers Program in exchange for my unbiased review of this work. More information can be found about this and other Christian audio books at christianaudio.com.

a great way to relfect on the true meaning of Christmas.
Every year many people celebrate the Christmas holiday.. Sadly the true meaning of the holiday is often drowned out by shopping for presents and putting up a tree.. But the real meaning behind Christmas is to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ..
This audio book : The Dawning of Indestructible Joy, Daily readings for advent. is a great refection on the real meaning behind Christmas..

Although I read this in August it still put me in the Christmas Spirit. I Love how this audio book is broken up into small sections, it really allowed for deep reflection without feeling overwhelmed with too much text.. Also this gave me the opportunity to listen to a daily audio portion several times in the same day..

Another thing I loved about this audio book is that the narrator was both engaging and warm.. adding something special to the text as he read it with great enthusiasm .
I plan on using this audio devotional in December to stir my spirit up to celebrate the birth of my Savior Jesus...

I was given the opportunity to review this book through christianaudio Reviewers Program (christianaudio) http://christianaudio.com .I was not required to leave a positive review. Thank you christianaudio..
