Item description for Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus: Experiencing the Peace and Promise of Christmas by Nancy Guthrie...
Overview This anthology of Advent readings collected from 22 classics and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers expounds on particular aspects of the Christmas story and includes the appropriate Scripture passage from the ESV Bible.
An anthology of Advent readings collected from the writings and sermons of 22 classic and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers.
Between purchasing presents and planning travel, enjoying holiday pageants and attending parties, it is all too easy for Christmas to silence the sacredness and crowd out a quiet anticipation of the season's truths. So when editor Nancy Guthrie decided she wanted a reflective book of Advent readings that would help her pause and consider the riches of Christ come to earth, she embarked on what she calls "a sacred adventure," putting together such a collection herself.
The result-this special volume-draws from the works and sermons of classic theologians such as Whitefield, Luther, Spurgeon, and Augustine, and from leading contemporary communicators such as John Piper, J. Ligon Duncan, Randy Alcorn, John MacArthur, Francis Schaeffer, R. C. Sproul, Skip Ryan, and Joni Eareckson Tada to beckon you and your family into the wonder of Jesus' incarnation and birth.
With its high view of Scripture and its focus on the gift of Jesus, this lovely book is sure to ready your heart and mind for a fresh experience of "Immanuel, God with us" this and every Advent season. Open the cover and discover what Christmas was meant to be...

Reviews - What do customers think about Come Thou Long Expected Jesus?
Very good book Jan 7, 2010
A great book to read during the entire Advent Season. The writings of this book are a constant reminder of the glorious hope behind Christmas.
A Real Blessing Dec 22, 2009
It is now 3 days before Christmas and I have been reading this each day for the past 20 or so days. The chapters are all written by wonderful Christian thinkers. Jesus has been glorified in my heart, mind and soul and I thank Nancy Guthrie for all the work she put into editing this book. I am going to order several more and give them as gifts next year--at Thanksgiving--so people can have them to prepare their hearts for Christmas.
Help in focusing on the real meaning of Christmas Mar 10, 2009
I loved this book and plan on reading it every Christmas season. It really helped me focus on Christ and not get as side-tracked with all the festivities which are wonderful, but can easily pull me away from centering on the birth of Christ. This book would make a great gift for others, too.

good Jan 14, 2009
if you are thinking of buying this book, chances are you don't need this review to convince you. this is a good christian perspective on the birth of jesus and christmas. if you are looking for something (like i was) to reorientate your thinking regarding the holiday season, this is a great tool. i would recommend it. it is not light reading. but the excerpts are relatively short.

This is a wonderful gift book, or just something to get your mind reset on what Christmas is all about. It is nice to have thoughts from the greats of our faith under one cover. I highly recommend this work to anyone who is sensing the loss of the reason Christmas is and is searching for meaning beyond the glitz and glitter of the storefront. You will be challenged to consider the Incarnation in the backdrop of the Crucifixtion and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
