Item description for The Innkeeper by John Piper & John Lawrence...
Overview A beautifully illustrated gift book, this advent poem celebrates the story ofChrist's birth and its effect on one man's life in particular.
Only two weeks from His crucifixion, Jesus has stopped in Bethlehem. He has returned to visit someone important--the innkeeper who made a place for Mary and Joseph the night He was born. But His greater purpose in coming is to pay a debt. What did it cost to house the Son of God?
Through this imaginative poem, John Piper shares a tale of what might have been. The story of an innkeeper whose life was forever altered by the arrival of the Son of God. Ponder the sacrifice that was made that night. Celebrate Christ's birth and the power of His resurrection. Rejoice in the life and light He brings to all. And encounter the hope His life gives you for today--and for eternity.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Innkeeper?
Not at all what I expected Jan 13, 2007
This book was an incredibly short read for me who is usually a slow reader. But the impact was felt long after the cover was closed, and I will return and read it again. Powerfully moving, filling in between the lines of the gospel in an area that the apostles didn't give much detail.
A Beautiful Gift Jul 14, 2000
This book is a beautiful gift from John Piper. It was an advent poem written for his congregation in Minneapolis. It will touch your heart deeply and then, at the end, the gospel! I have given this book to many as a gift. Buy it for anyone you wish to bless with the gift of Jesus. The illustrations are beautiful sketches by John Lawrence. It may be given as a gift to a child with caution. (read it yourself first and decide.)
