We all know the Christmas story. Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, the long-awaited Messiah, the Savior, the Great I AM in the flesh comes to earth as a humble infant, born of the virgin in a lowly Bethlehem stable. Truly, the story of Christmas, is one of the two greatest stories ever told (Easter being the other). But to many, the story is one that has become so familiar, that it has, perhaps, lost its feeling of wonderment. Sometimes it would seem as though we have lost our ability to truly be awed by the fact that the Creator of the universe came not only to us, but as one of us… yet so much more!
As a compilation of reflections from famed pastor, teacher, and writer A.W. Tozer, “From Heaven” is chock-full of fresh perspectives on Biblical truths pertaining to Christmas and Advent. Divided into daily readings for each day of Advent, this book is perfect for the purpose of focusing more on the real meaning of Christmas, with the daily readings still being short enough to fit into the busyness of a typical holiday schedule. Don’t hesitate to pick up a copy of this special little book. “From Heaven” stretches our minds and our hearts in such ways that we cannot help but gain back that sense of amazement.
