The Advent of Glory – R C Sproul

R C Sproul was a much respected Bible teacher, writer and broadcaster whose legacy lives on in the work of Ligonier Ministries that he founded, with the aim of helping people to grow in their knowledge of God.

This is a lovely devotional specifically for the 24 days of Advent, with the chapters taken from a series of sermons that he gave, and edited into this format by his wife. Each study is based on a key word, taking the reader through a different part of the Christmas story, offering insight into its true meaning and how it can be applied personally.

The teaching brings the Christmas story alive, explaining many significant facts from the Gospel accounts, offering the reader an opportunity to gain a deeper insight into the events and their meaning to us now.

Each chapter is maybe 5 to 10 minutes to read, digest and offers a chance to consider the significance of the Christmas story to our lives now.

At the end of each chapter is a prayer, with each one being written by one of six well-known authors and teachers, enabling the reader to let the topic permeate the soul more deeply.

Reading this each day of Advent will certainly bring the reader a deeper understanding and knowledge of the relevance of the birth of Christ.

The Advent of Glory, by R C Sproul, is available here.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, but was under no pressure to provide a favourable review.
