Celebrating The Glory of Advent

December 20, 2019

It seems every year I struggle to select a devotional booklet for Advent that is both thoughtful, reverent, practical and allows me to catch a glimpse of the glory of the incarnation. This year I discovered a ministry tool that accomplished all of these goals and more. It is titled,  The Grand Miracle: Daily Reflections For The Season of Advent based on the writings of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dorothy L. Sayers, George MacDonald, G.K. Chesterton, Charles Williams, Owen Barfield and Joy Davidman, (2019, Christian History Institute).

Each days devotion reading has an evocative photograph, Scriptural text, Quote from an Inklings, full devotional from an author associated with the Marion Wade Center on the campus of Wheaton College in Illinois and a written prayer.

To say I have been impressed with the content of this small booklet is a major understatement. my wife and I have used it every evening of Advent and every reading has been excellent and filled our preparation for Christmas with JOY! I was so impressed I purchased 50 copies of the devotional for use in our small congregation as well as university students! The cost is small (around $2.99 for a single copy) and less as volume discounts are applied. The devotional can also be read online at:

I fully intend to keep a copy of this great personal devotional and ministry tool close at hand  for the rest of 2019 and into Christmas’s to come!!!
