From My TBR Pile: Pursuing the Christ: Prayers for Christmastime by Jennifer Kennedy Dean
I picked up two copies of this book from Christianbook.com because they have it on sale for $4.99 for a limited time. I'm not sure how long it will last, but I thought it would make a great present for my mother-in-law and a perfect way to prepare my heart during Advent.
BLURB: With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season come multiple distractions-distractions that keep readers from focusing on Christ. Beloved prayer author and speaker Jennifer Kennedy Dean, in this revised edition of Pursuing the Christ, helps readers see the distractions of Christmas in a new way. Pursuing the Christ is a 31-day devotional and prayer guide based on themes of Advent, such as hope, peace, and joy. This guide, with its beautiful and poetic divider pages and east-to-use format, leads readers through the weeks of advent, providing familiar Christmas verses and some possibly not-so familiar Messianic passages from the prophets and Psalms.
FIRST SENTENCE: Advent is the traditional term for the season of anticipation leading up to Christmas, the celebration of Christ's coming into the world.
