“Of our all holy days, it’s the Season of the Advent that most invites our songs.”
– Robert J. Morgan
Title: Come Let Us Adore Him
Author: Robert J. Morgan
Who should read this? Those who desire to spend some quality moments contemplating biblical truth during the holidays.
What I like about it: This book (that reads a little like a devotional) tells the stories behind several cherished Christmas hymns. In about 10 minutes you can read the history of each song, a few relevant biblical passages, and the hymn itself (the music sheet is provided if you are musically inclined).
Each Christmas I enjoy finding a few spare moments to sit down and learn about the interesting details surrounding the hymns. But more than that, I appreciate the reminder to focus on our great God and his amazing gift during the busy days that December brings.
This book is certainly worth your time during a month in which you have very little of it.
