What People are Saying About This
'O. S. Hawkins has 'broken the code' to bringing practical and powerful insights into the patterns and principles of Scripture. There's a reason that more than a million of his devotionals have been embraced by those who have discovered this insightful series.' -- Mike Huckabee, television commentator and former governor of Arkansas
'True devotion to Christ draws us into the Bible and increases our love for the Word of God. That's what makes the Code series so powerful. Deeply biblical, relevant, and faithful--this series will greatly bless you, your friends, and your church.' -- R. Albert Mohler Jr, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
'Too many devotionals are long on the thoughts of men and short on the wisdom of God. I endorse the entire Code series of devotionals from my friend O. S. Hawkins because they start with Scripture and keep the focus on the Lord.' -- Greg Laurie, senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship
'Whether on the football field or the field of life, you need a playbook.The entire Code series of devotionals is a great resource for my own spiritual growth. I read one of the Code books regularly in my own devotions and enthusiastically recommend them to my family, friends, and fans.' -- Roger Staubach, Hall of Fame quarterback and real estate developer
'In my forty-five years in ministry, I have never seen a more desperate need for truly biblically wise counsel. Unfortunately, most of the books available are man-centered, which do not even provide temporary help. That is why I am so thankful that Dr. O. S. Hawkins penned the Code series. The questions that are asked in the Bible are the questions everyone is asking, and thank God the Code series gives us truly sustaining and uplifting answers. This book is a must for everyone. Read and reread it, and be eternally blessed.' -- Dr. Michael Youssef, senior pastor, Church of the Apostles, Atlanta, Georgia
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
THE CHRISTMAS CODE - Daily Devotions Celebrating The Advent Season by O. S. Hawkins is a book that allows you to slow down and remember the real reason for the season. With exactly 25 devotionals one could begin on December 1, if that is your pleasure. Of course it would make a great stocking stuffer but that would mean the person would not get the book until Day 25. It would also make a wonderful table top book, or bathroom read (if you know what I mean) however, I think THE CHRISTMAS CODE is a great book to read anytime of the year but then again I watch Christmas movies year-round. THE CHRISMAS CODE helps you keep the spirit of Christmas in your heart and mind no matter when you read it thus it would make a great gift. Technically speaking: the book is 58 pages and each devotional comes with a Bible verse, commentary, a code word and a mini prayer. On December 11th the “Code Word” is Providence and the elaboration begins: “God is at work,behind the scenes in your life, right now.” This book contains words of faith and encouragement a great devotional for personal use as well as a gift. - written by Marsha L F Randolph Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program.
