What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Good News of Great Joy brings within our reach a fresh discovery of the glory of Christmas. What a relief, for busy people like every one of us, to sit down for 10 minutes each day in Advent and think about Jesus our Savior—and rest, rejoice, revive!”
—Ray Ortlund, Pastor to Pastors, Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee

“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.”
—J. A. Medders, author, Humble Calvinism; Pastor, Risen Church, Houston, Texas

“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!”
—Conrad Mbewe, Pastor, Kabwata Baptist Church, Lusaka, Zambia

“What a treasure chest of truth about Jesus! In these short, poignant devotions, John Piper lifts our gaze again and again to see Christmas as it really should be seen—as good news of great joy for you and for me. This book is an invitation to know the incarnate Son sent by the Father in the power of the Spirit."
—Abigail Dodds, author, (A)Typical Woman: Free, Whole, and Called in Christ
