Book Review: God is in the Manger

Just as Advent is divided into weeks, this book is also divided into sections. Advent Week One: Waiting; Advent Week Two: Mystery; Advent Week Three: Redemption; Advent Week Four: Incarnation and The Twelve Days of Christmas and Epiphany.

I, personally have never read works by Dietrich Bonhoeffer before because discussions with my son about him were intimidating. However, this Advent Guide takes the reader to what matters during Christmas. Bonhoeffer was arrested by the Nazi's in 1943 for his position against Hitler. He was then hung in 1945. The writings from this book were recorded while in prison, and there were exerpts from letters and sermons.

I feel like this is a good resource for each year, as a reminder of what this season means.

I was given this book by NetGalley and Westminster John Knox Press in exchange for my honest review.
