“This powerful devotional by best-selling author Walter Brueggemann includes daily reflections on the Scriptures and stories of Advent in order to invite us to see beyond the world’s faux extravagance and realize the true feast laid out before us. Training our eyes to see through the rough stable, the adolescent mother, and the anxious escape to Egypt, we can see in that poverty and powerlessness, the wonder of God’s abundant life and grace coming down to dwell among us. Twelve prayers are also included for the twelve days of the Christmas season.” (from Celebrating Abundance)
