Once-A-Day 25 Days of Advent Devotional
Zondervan, October 2012
Prayer and anticipation are now in season: 25 Devotions for Advent
Beginning on December 1, this Once-A-Day Christmastime devotional
booklet takes you through the entire Advent season with thoughts on the
person of Jesus: his involvement at the creation of the world, his life
in the Gospel accounts, and who he is today. Along the way you will meet
and examine the lives of various individuals involved in the
incarnation, and during the week of Christmas examine the response to
this miraculous and gracious event, both in heaven and on earth. Written
by Dr. Kenneth Boa, president of Reflections Ministries, these 25
devotions offer select Scripture passages that allow readers to gain a
fuller perspective on Jesus' presence throughout the Bible. In addition,
each devotion provides thoughts and questions for meditation, along
with a prayer for each day, making them perfect for your own personal,
family, or small-group use. The 25 days of reading are broken out as
follows:* The Old Testament presence of Jesus: who He was at creation,
where He shows up in other parts of the Old Testament, and more* The
people associated with the Nativity: Zechariah and Elisabeth, Mary and
Joseph, John the Baptist, Herod, and the Magi* The specifics and the
people directly involved in the nativity: the shepherds, the angels, and
the baby Jesus himself * A Christmas reading that points ahead to his
ministry, his passion and his rule as King.

Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business
success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was
painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital
ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living'
landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the
beautiful to the corrupt. It is here that he has vivid interactions with
others he assumes are projections of his own subconscious, but whose
directions he follows nonetheless with the possibility that they might
lead to authenticity and perhaps, redemption. The adventure draws Tony
into deep relational entanglements where he is able to 'see' through the
literal eyes and experiences of others, but is "blind" to the
consequences of hiding his personal agenda and loss that emerge to war
against the processes of healing and trust. Will this unexpected
coalescing of events cause Tony to examine his life and realize he built
a house of cards on the poisoned grounds of a broken heart? Will he
also have the courage to make a critical choice that can undo a major
injustice he set in motion before falling into a coma?
