Good News of Great Joy: Daily Readings for Advent by John Piper
English | Nov. 15, 2013 | ISBN: 0983916470 | 74 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Advent is for adoring Jesus. It is a season of preparation for that special day when we mark Immanuel’s arrival — the coming of our eternal God in frail, human flesh. This is the greatest wonder of history’s many wonders, something too stupendous to celebrate just on one day. Advent is a way of lengthening the joy of Christmas.

The familiar hymn Veni Emmanuel is emblematic of the Advent season: a period of reflection upon the meaning of Christ's coming.
