"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.


God is in the Manger


This book was used for my preparation for Christmas. The Advent passages expressed the waiting for that feast. Bonhoeffer's deep faith and his wonderful ability to communicate that to the reader was a highlight for me. I wish I had lived in those times and had heard him preach. Because the format was a double page for each day, it made for easy reading and meditation. The sad part was the realisation that Bonhoeffer wrote much of the passages while he was in prison. He was only 39 when he was executed. He had so much to offer to the world.
