Scott James in his new book, “The Expected One” published by B&H Books gives us Anticipating All of Jesus in the Advent From the back cover: Experience the redemptive story while preparing your heart for Advent Every Christmas, Christians all over the world celebrate the Advent season, recognizing the love, hope, joy, and peace that is found only in Jesus Christ. Through this devotional, Scott James brings to light the many promises of Christ–from birth to ascension–that demonstrate His love for us during this Christmas season. These daily devotions, which are designed for both family and individual use, are timeless and moving reminders of the true gift of Christmas. Focusing on the whole story of redemption while celebrating the nativity story, The Expected One is a powerful resource for readers to prepare their hearts for Christmas throughout the Advent season. During the weeks leading up to December 25th readers will enjoy devotionals that help them focus their minds and hearts around the gift of Christ’s birth. Advent literally means “Arrival”. Scott James doesn’t just look at the birth of Jesus. No, he also focuses our attention to His death and resurrection as well. The book is divided into six parts: The Promise Of His Coming, The Promise Of His Birth, The Promise Of His Life, The Promise Of His Death, The Promise Of His Resurrection, The Promise Of His Eternal Reign. “The Expected One” gives us a devotional, by day, from December 1st through December 25th. Each day has a verse, the devotional and then a Review & Reflect section. They are easy reads that do not take much time but the results are lasting. This is one book you will be returning to year after year. It is also a great gift to give to friends and family to help them with their days. I recommend this book highly.
