Reclaiming the Wonder of Christmas
Every time the Christmas season comes around, we look forward to putting up a tree, giving and receiving gifts, and participating in other traditions that make this wonderful time of year so special. But sometimes the most significant aspect of the season—remembering and focusing on the coming of Jesus—grows old and familiar. In Come Let Us Adore Him: A Daily Advent Devotional, Paul Tripp seeks to recapture our attention and reactivate our awe during Christmastime.
Each day is structured like Tripp’s best-selling devotional, New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional‚ with a compelling, gospel-centered thought followed by an extended meditation for the day. Each of the thirty-one readings also includes a Scripture reading and notes for parents and children, equipping us to do the one thing that matters most each December—celebrate the glory of the incarnation of God's Son.
Matt Chandler writes:
It's not uncommon for me to hear friends and members of the church I pastor talk of how ‘Christmas snuck up on them.’ Paul David Tripp has written a fantastic Advent devotional for individuals or families, and it's the perfect solution for preparing our hearts and homes to celebrate what's really going on underneath the tinsel and the trees.

Theology serves us best when it is translated into devotion. Paul David Tripp’s 'Come, Let Us Adore Him' is that rare gem—great theology inspiring great devotion. This book will enrich my family’s experience of Christmas this year, and I believe it can enrich your Christmas too.
Here’s a list of questions designed not only to kindle a conversation in almost any Christmas situation.
The hardest thing about waiting is not knowing when it’s going to end, if it is going to end.
Christmas is about the coming of Christ into the world.
