These Advent and Christmas reflections of Bonhoeffer flew from his prison cell, flung open the doors of hope, and sailed heavenward as heart-wrenching prayers, prayers from a condemned man, prayers from a hopeful man, prayers from a man who embodied what it means to pray 'May your kingdom come. Scot McKnight, professor in religious studies, North Park University, and author of The Jesus Creed and The Blue Parakeet. Title: God Is in the Manger: Reflections on Advent and Christmas. Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Rather, God in in the Manger is about opening up the truly disruptive and unsettling claims of the gospel; claims that mark the very heart of the Christmas story. This Christmas, step out of the warm and comforting notion of Christmas and embrace the unsettling realities that Christmas brings: waiting on Christ the promise; redemption; incarnation; and joy.

These are the manger and the cross of Jesus Christ

These are the manger and the cross of Jesus Christ. No priest, no theologian stood at the cradle of Bethlehem. And yet, all Christian theology finds its beginnings in the miracle of miracles, that God became human.

These are very useful and edifying edited Advent and Christmas devotionals that force the reader to deal with the reality of the incarnation and the tension of the right now and not yet aspects of the Christian life. They do make a great compliment to the Advent and Christmas season. If read in sequence, there are daily devotions that last the reader from December 1 - January 6.

The material in this book is taken partly from the book of collated, Bonhoeffer writings, called, "I Want to Live These Days With You: A Year of Daily Devotions." Also, each reading includes in most cases a section from a letter or sermon from Bonhoeffer, written or given during the Christmas season.

The great value of this little 100+ page book is that the author, who never had the opportunity to compile his writing in this format, during his short life, is that they are written in context of someone who was taken from his family and fiancee, and faced with the coming execution by an anti Christ regime, in NAZI Germany. Many of these writing are written in the context of his life struggling against or suffering under NAZI oppression. So Bonhoeffer, from the outset makes no illusions of a sentimental Christmas holiday, though he surely pined for the reassurance and comfort of family. He was comforted by the Christ who came and is coming again.

There are at times hints of Neo - orthodoxy, which is not unexpected. Bonhoeffer's writing remains clear, and direct, even if much of the time, it is complex and deep.

The book is divided into five sections: Waiting, Mystery, Redemption, Incarnation, and the Twelve Days of Christmas to Epiphany.

So while these are writings of a young theologian, wrestling greatly with what Christ called him to, during some of the most difficult of times, the tone of the writings is never not pastoral, and kind. Bonhoeffer does speak to the internal callings and struggles that are common to all Christians, and his call is to point others constantly to the reality and hope that the incarnation represents.

My new go to Christmas season devotional. It's by week (7 days worth) so it doesn't matter what day of the week Christmas falls on, then following Christmas there are devotionals by calendar day until Jan 6th. It covers the *whole* season.

Also each week has it's own topic, so you really focus on one idea at a time, which I really liked. The passages are excepts from letters, so it's a little different in style than most devotionals, but perhaps also a bit more personal.

It is 2016 and I've picked it up again. I am excited to go through it and be challenged again!

If you haven't read Bonhoeffer or if you think you don't have the time, this is a great way to dip your feet into his thinking. Using excerpts from sermons, letters, and even writings of others (like his fiancé responding to him), we get some great advent thoughts on the miracle and mystery of Christ. I used this as ideas for advent sermons and for my weekly column in the church newsletter during December. Pretty good amount of material for such a short book! Designed for daily readings for 30 days, you could also do it in about 2 hours.

This book is a daily devotional for the 4 weeks of Advent leading up to Christmas. The Bonhoeffer materials come from writings he did while being held prisoner by the Nazis. Some are quotes from letters to his fiance Mary and his parents during advent others are writings from his journal. There are also quotes from Mary's letters to him. These are paired with other reflections, scripture selections and prayers. The combination makes a powerful look at the meaning of Christmas from the point of view of a person who is experiencing difficult times. The devotions include quotes from "The Ragamuffin Gospel" written by an Oregon author. If you are looking at an alternative to the superfical happy crap of the current approach to Christmas, this is a powerful alternative that will show you a new way to think about Christmas Joy.

GOD IS IN THE MANGER: REFLECTIONS ON ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS by DIETRICH BONHOEFFER

I realize this is January but I wanted to let you know about a book I read during Advent and Christmas. I have been looking for a good Advent book for a long time and I have found it.

This little book is divided into 5 parts:
* Advent Week One--Waiting
* Advent Week Two-- Mystery
* Advent Week Three--Redemption
* Advent Week Four-- Incarnation
* The Twelve Days of Christmas and Epiphany

Reading devotional literature by Dietrich Bonhoeffer can be challenging. But God is in the Manger opens up the gospel and will take you to the heart of the Christmas story.

Most of these devotions are taken from writings during the time Bonhoeffer was being held in a Nazi prison cell. Also included with each day's reading are short excerpt from Bonhoeffer's letters and passages from his Christmas sermons.

I plan to read this again before Advent 2011. We need to be reminded about the real reason for Christmas--Christ.

I thoroughly enjoyed this thought provoking devotional. I will definitely be keeping this in my regular rotation during advent season. Snippets from Bonhoeffer's letters and sermons add some much needed perspective on what the season truly is about. And each reading ends with a passage of scripture. It's not your usual "fluff piece" Christmas devotional, so I was thankful to have found one with depth and great reminders of what true Christianity is like.

I plan on gifting it to a few friends next year. Highly recommend it!

I like this book very much. Detrich Bonhoeffer begins some of the devotions with an Old Testament verse, or verses , of prophecy.
He effortlessly and beautifully relates them to the New Testament birth of Christ.
This book is a Westminster John Knox Press.
I've used this devotional at Advent time every year for five years now. I love it too much to switch to different ones. Each year I look forward to using it again. It goes from Advent through the first week of January, and I'm always sad when I come to the end and it's time to put it away for another year!
