Book 62: Good News of Great Joy by John Piper

Number of pages: 63

Book of daily readings for Advent that I read a few years ago and gave away. The person who originally gave me this must have forgotten because they gave me a new copy this year.

It was good to read again, because there were lots of things I'd forgotten, and not thought of, like the reason for the magi visiting Jesus from far away lands was to show that Jesus was for the whole world, not just for Israel.

I liked the way that John Piper made all of his readings relatable to life today.

Next book: The Professor (Charlotte Brontë)
