Description of A Surprising God: Advent Devotions for an Uncertain Time by Thomas G. Long and Donyelle C. McCray
The world that is emerging from the shadow of global emergency raises old questions with new urgency: Where do we find hope when it seems in such short supply? Where are the signs of God's peace in this divided world? Where do we find a deeper sense of joy?
In their new daily devotional, A Surprising God, Thomas Long and Donyelle McCray remind us that these are the questions of Advent. They invite readers to honest reflection on the challenges of being people of faith in this moment. They explore what it means to wait for our salvation, to be open to the surprising thing that God is about to do, and to find hope in God's choice of the small and insignificant.
