About "The One True Gift: Daily Readings For Advent to Encourage and Inspire"
Christmas is meant to be full of joy and light; but all too often it is spoiled by grumbling and arguing.
The 24 concise daily readings in this advent book share Paul's answer to this problem from Philippians chapter 2 and many many more: the big story of how and why Jesus came into the world. Each day includes ideas for reflection, prayer and application, designed to excite you about the gospel message in the run-up to Christmas Day.
If we see ourselves as part of that big story, then we will all shine like stars...

We recently read through this as a family for advent. We really enjoyed the opportunity to reflect deeply on one passage over so many days. I had to summarise some parts for my 13 year old, but we all found it challenging and encouraging. It helped us focus on Jesus and the amazing gift he is this advent.
