The book is entitled Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus (click the title to be taken to Crossway's site). It is, and I quote, "an anthology of Advent readings collected from the writings and sermons of 22 classic and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers." Shelly and I picked up this little book last year and we were both greatly encouraged and I am again finding it to be wonderful source of food for my soul this year. Many of the authors are some of my all-time favorites - contributors like John Piper, J. Ligon Duncan, Randy Alcorn, John MacArthur, Francis Schaeffer, R. C. Sproul, Skip Ryan, Joni Eareckson Tada, Martin Luther, Jonathan Edwards, etc... With a line up like that how could one not be challenged and encouraged!
So, what will you do to heed the call and warning of Hebrews. Brothers and sisters, we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard.
