Good News of Great Joy (Free Advent eBook) – John Piper

Posted on 27 November 2012 by Nathan D

Dear Friends,

I’m excited to tell you about a new free eBook for Advent from Desiring God. It’s calledGood News of Great Joy, organized specifically for this Advent, 2012.

Advent is just around the corner. It starts the fourth Sunday before Christmas — this year, that’s December 2 — and is a season of preparation for Christmas Day.

The team here at Desiring God did a deep dive into our thirty-plus-year reservoir of sermons and articles, and selected brief devotional readings for each day of Advent. Our hope is that God would use these readings to deepen and sweeten your adoration of Jesus this Advent.

These daily devotionals correspond to the daily readings in our devotional app Solid Joys, which is available for free download in the iTunes store. If you find short daily reflections like these helpful, we’d hope you’ll keep using Solid Joys once Advent is done.

Our prayer is that this new eBook might help you keep Jesus as the center and greatest treasure of your Advent season. The candles and candies have their place, but we want to make sure that in all the Christmas rush and hubbub we adore Jesus above all.

December is an important time for us at Desiring God. We give most of what we have away for free. This is possible because lots of thankful people help us make that happen. It would make us really glad if you would pray about how you might be involved in supporting our mission as this year comes to a close.

For Christ and his kingdom,

John Piper
and David Mathis, Executive Editor

Like Muslims we assume that God will judge us “on balance.” If our good deeds outweigh our bad deeds, we will arrive safely in heaven. But, alas, if our evil deeds outweigh our good ones, we will suffer the wrath of God in hell. We may be “marred” by sin but in no wise devastated by it. We still have the ability to balance our sins with our own righteousness. This is the most monstrous lie of all. — RC Sproul
