Prepare for the coming of Christ this Christmas season using the newly published Advent devotional O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. This carefully curated collection of forty daily readings will guide you step-by-step through a rich daily worship experience from the beginning of Advent through Epiphany, which occurs on January 6.
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel draws from the devout writings of more than eighty great theologians throughout the centuries. Historical scholars like Augustine, John Bradford, Charles Spurgeon, Charles Wesley, Martin Luther, Jonathan Edwards, and even C. S. Lewis will point you expectantly toward the Messiah’s birth and second coming. The devotional also includes prayers from the Book of Common Prayer and the Book of Public Prayer, which have been used to encourage Christians for hundreds of years.
Presented by the author of the highly rated book Be Thou My Vision, O Come, O Come, Emmanuel also follows a liturgical format, which is simply a sequence similar to what you may follow during your local church service. Each daily reading begins with a call to worship followed by prayers of adoration, confession, pardon, and praise. The daily liturgies also include recitations of a creed or catechism, the Lord’s Prayer, Scripture readings, and a benediction and postlude.
This unique devotional aims to offer a rich structure for worshipping not only during Advent but also all season long by meditating on the first coming of Jesus while awaiting the second. Each liturgy is designed to take about twenty minutes, which allows for flexibility when time is limited. This beautiful book comes in a cloth, gold-embossed hardcover, with three silk ribbons to hold your place, and stores in a gold-embossed box, making it a keepsake book and perfect for gift giving.
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel can be used for personal or family devotions as well as with your small group. Prepare for the coming of the Lord Jesus by using the words and prayers given to us by some of the most well-known theologians in history.
