Description

We may be familiar with the baby in the manger, but have you met the Word who was in the beginning with God? Have you met the One True Light who is full of grace and truth? Or the Cosmic Lord who won the right for people to become Children of God? They are one and the same person.

Join Tim Chester as he guides us through the opening verses of the Gospel of John, and enjoy a Christmas infused with new meaning and light.

With ideas for reflection, prayer and application, these short, meditative readings will excite you about Jesus in the busyness of the run up to Christmas Day.

From the introduction...
"The build-up to Christmas is a busy time. There are presents to buy, parties to attend, food to prepare, cards to send and relatives to visit. So it’s easy to forget about Jesus, even at Christmas—especially at Christmas. But the truth is that we’ll never enjoy Christmas properly unless we understand who it is who was born in Bethlehem that night. Indeed, we won’t enjoy life to the full until we see God in a manger."

Commendations

If you’re looking for a fresh, creative, insightful, and thoroughly biblical and Christ-exalting guide for Advent, look no further. Tim Chester’s book, The One True Light, applies biblical theology to the first 18 verses of John’s gospel to show us how the Incarnation affects every aspect of our lives. Brief and simple enough for children, yet deep and rich enough for mature Christians, this is a book that inspires awe, wonder, and praise for Emmanuel, God with us.

Most of us struggle to keep the main thing the main thing – and at Christmas, even more so! In this advent devotional Tim strips away all the unnecessary distractions and helps us focus on Christ. Journeying daily through John 1 we catch a fresh glimpse of Jesus and are invited into a deeper relationship with him - essential if we are to recapture the true meaning of Christmas.

Advent is a great time to remember and retell the Great Story. In short meditations Tim Chester takes us day by day on an advent journey to meet the lovely Jesus of the Bible – “not just a preacher or healer but the Creator walking into his creation.” Come and meet the Word of God remaking the World of God
A super series of short meditations introducing the Jesus who brings us into the loving arms of his Father. All warmly illustrated with stories from life about problematic plumbing, Chelsea Football Club, enjoying the sky at night, the city of Sheffield and fist-fighting bishops!

“Great little advent meditations”

I would recommend this book. Every day in advent there is something to think about that is relevant and poignant. I have tried many other advent readings in the past and this is the only one I've managed to stick with throughout the season because I found it short and to the point. Have always been a Tim Chester fan! Am buying more copies for friends for next advent.

“Great Christmas devotion!”

(Review written for 'The One True Light (ebook)')

We read through this as a family in the run up to Christmas. It's very readable and engaging and helped us to focus on the real meaning of Christmas from the beginning of John's gospel.
