Lovely devotional! Dec 18, 2007
We have been enjoying using this devotional during Advent Season. It's a good private devotional or for a family with older (high school age) children. The use of Wesley's hymns makes it so rich in theology as well as encouragement. It's nicely organized and easy to use.
