Book Description:

Bethlehem’s Warrior (31 Day Devotional)

Short Book Description: In 31 daily devotional meditations Bethlehem’s Warrior
Baby takes you out of a sentimental nativity scene and into a contest with
eternal significance.

It walks you through God’s promise in Genesis 3:15 of Someone coming and the
clues to His identity in the old Testament. You become aware that in the
Christmas event that ‘Someone’ has come.

I believe Christmas is the culmination of Heaven’s countdown to reclaim men,
women and creation from the tyranny of sin, death and Satan. The cost involved
to God to achieve this should make the reader bow in awe and gratitude.

My Opinion:

 

Bethlehem’s Warrior Baby is a nice little devotional that will take you through 31 days of focusing on Christmas, but not in the typical white washed, itty bitty baby way that most of us tend to think of Christmas.  One doesn’t often think of the Christ child coming to wage war, we often perceive the birth of the Lord as we see all baby’s born, cute, cuddly and bringing joy.  I liked having a new perspective on Christ’s birth – that while He came as a baby, He came to wage a war against death, sin and Satan – for us.  With Scripture readings, thoughts on the passage and prayers this book can be used after Thanksgiving and up through Christmas to focus on Christ’s redeeming love.
