How can we experience Advent in a way that is advantageous to our souls after December 25? By beholding and enjoying the glory of God in the incarnate Christ, your Savior, your Lord, your brother, your friend. John Piper’s Good News of Great Joy takes you on an exploration of the good news of Christmas, inviting you to join him in wonder, awe, and a joy that surpasses holiday cheer. This book is about everlasting joy, and Piper will point you to it, to him, Jesus Christ.

Conrad Mbewe

Pastor, Kabwata Baptist Church, Lusaka, Zambia

These Advent devotions from the pen of John Piper may be brief, but you will find in them the depth and richness of thought that Piper is well-known for. With a sense of joyful reverence, he holds us by the hand and takes us into the inner sanctuary of the incarnation. As we pause at the fountainhead of the Son born to us in Bethlehem, we are primed to appreciate even more the gushing floods of love in his mangled form on Calvary. If you want your Christmas season to be spiritually enriched, marinate it with thoughts from this book!
