In Come Let Us Adore Him: A Daily Advent Devotional, Paul Tripp seeks to recapture our attention and reawaken our awe du...

Reviews Come, Let Us Adore Him

  • Jonathan Sussex
    This is a great book for the Christmas season as each of 31 devotionals is only four pages long, so even on the very busy days it is short enough but rich enough to give some focus to your day. This book will be added to my Christmas reading list for future years
  • Autumn Klepper
    I enjoyed this book. I really appreciate Paul Tripp’s writing style - very direct, easy to follow, yet poignant & cuts to the heart. He has a very unique way of expressing deep truths without complicating his words in the process.
  • Josh Skinner
    I found my family's 2017 Advent devotional. Short, clear readings from an author with a heart to guide his reader into a greater appreciation of the Gospel and affection for the Lord who makes and keeps grand promises. I look forward to sitting with my family and enjoying this early Christmas gift. ARC provided
  • Jordan Shirkman
    I’m typically a huge fan of PDT, and I have especially enjoyed his other devotional “Whiter Than Snow” and “New Morning Mercies.” The content of this book is solid and gospel-centered, with a primary focus on our sin and Christ as the only solution. Unfortunately the sentence structure and wording makes it difficult to read aloud at times, and each devotional is at least 4-5 pages long, which just feels realllly long for a family devoti...
  • Sophia
    My husband and I were looking for a guided devotional themed around the Christmas season. This one was recommended to us. We've already enjoyed some of the author's previous work so it was an easy decision to give Come, Let Us Adore Him a go.We didn't get much beyond the introduction when we realized that, indeed, this was exactly what we wanted. Tripp's easy-read, yet profound, light and quick devotional points and follow up Scripture reading wa...

    Are you taking the Christmas story for granted? Have you lost your wonder and awe? Do you remember why a Savior was needed in the first place? When was the last time you were humbled by the babe that was born to die...for you?Come, Let Us Adore Him is a devotional written by Paul David Tripp. He seeks to wake up sleepy Christians and give a 'new' sense of wonder and awe. Can a great book get its start as a tweet? I wouldn't have thought a...
  • Calvinist Batman
    Each day is pretty much the same: you are dead in sin and need this Christmas miracle to save you.There are some nice ones that go off this script a little but it stays pretty much the same all through the book.If this was a straight read, that would be a little hard to handle (the repetition, not the gospel). But since you’re reading it once a day it’s actually pretty great, at least for me since I’m so forgetful.In truth, though I haven...
  • Sarah Powell
    Amazing December Advent Devo!I’ll probably be reading this every year for a while. So good. Not your typical “nativity story” devotional but rather takes you through perspective on the birth of Jesus and what that really fully means for us. This was so needed and so great so much quotable and highlightable content!
  • Bailey Urban
    HIGHLY recommend this devotional for Advent. Love Tripp's style of writing. My favorite phrase he used was that we have an "obsessive allegiance to our little kingdom of one."Beautifully written with lots of verses weaved in and a way to talk to your kids about it as well.
  • Brent
    Horrible as an advent book. It should be called Come Let Us Be Sad, Tangential, and Wordy. I dreaded the daily reading. The writing style is off-putting. Many times it felt as though the author were chasing a word quota instead of expressing relevant content. I regret not reading a better [any other] advent book this season.
  • Josh Stowers
    Wonderful Devotional, Worth getting for the questions and practical teaching for children. I personally would have preferred it to be more exegetical but I still enjoyed this during this Christmas season.
  • Joel Rockey
    Great advent devotional. Paul Tripp is fantastic.
  • Jeanie
    We have become to familiar with the Christmas story without being in wonder of the Christmas story. We are so easily distracted that we stand away from the true meaning of the Christmas story. The closer we stand, dive in, be in wonder, we will become gripped with the life-changing wonderful of knowing that God became a child so that we would be no longer be separate from God, but would be now and forever the children of God. Come, Let Us Adore H...
  • Darryl Eyb
    Come Let Us Adore Him: A Daily Advent Devotional by Paul David Tripp is a Christmas devotional which dives head long into the wonder of Jesus becoming human. If you are like me, Christmas time is often busy. There is so much to do. It can be hard to stop. I’m also so familiar with the Christmas story. Often I read it with little sense of wonder. This devotional’s intention is to make you stop and be amazed.Come Let Us Adore Him is a 31 day de...
  • Mike
    Every year, I feel the time from Thanksgiving to Christmas passes by more quickly. I’m sure it is because I seem to cram more and more in those few weeks each and every year. Even to a believer, the focus of Christmas becomes gifts, decorations, concerts, dinners, and get-togethers. I need a tool to help me take time to not lose my focus on what is most important.Paul David Tripp is well-known as an author and speaker. As a pastor, I’ve benef...
  • Chrys Jones
    Paul Tripp is an author you should probably be acquainted with you haven't been already! He has produced a wealth of wonderful resources in the realm of biblical counseling including books on parenting, marriage, worship, and many more topics. His Advent devotional Come Let Us Adore Him is a gem that is sure to benefit families for years to come. Tripp’s comfortable and personal writing style carries home the gospel message found in the Christm...
  • Bill Pence
    The author of this new book of devotional readings writes that the Christmas story is the story of stories, but for some it suffers from our familiarity with it. He writes that when we are familiar with things we tend not to celebrate them as we once did. Familiarity tends to rob us of our wonder. As a result, he writes that many of us aren’t gripped by the stunningly magnificent events and truths of the birth of Jesus anymore. Many of us are n...
  • Blythe
    If you’re familiar with Tripp’s devotional New Morning Mercies, then you might already be a fan of how he draws the reader in with his use of simple but profound language; Come, Let Us Adore Him is no different. Each reading is 3-4 pages long, and Tripp uses personal stories and conversational language to discuss each day’s scripture—it feels less like a pastor or counselor talking to me and more like a coffee date with a friend. Tripp ac...
  • Chris Wilson
    Paul Tripp has written, spoken, and encouraged many throughout his time in ministry. This book, a collection of Advent devotional readings for the month of December, captures in brief why Tripp remains one of the more often read and enjoyed authors going. Each day focuses on a thought, from a Tripp tweet (there's got to be a marketing ploy somewhere in there), that is fleshed out concerning the coming of Jesus and why that is ultimately good news...
  • Joan
    This is not your typical Christmas devotional, full of warm stories. Tripp wants us to be once again gripped by the truth of the advent, to have our attentions focused once again on the reason Jesus came to earth.Tripp reminds us that Jesus offers us the only solution to our problem. We are separated from God. We exist in the brokenness of sin. We must understand the seriousness of the problem to appreciate the glorious nature of the solution, ou...

  • Anthony Stephens
    I have been a fan of Paul David Tripp’s work for some time now. I enjoy the way that he shares the truths of the Bible in a way that is creative and straightforward. When I heard that he had written an Advent devotional, I knew that I would have to get my hands on it and check it out.After looking over this devotional, I believe that this work will be a great help to those who are looking to have a fresh take on the season where we celebrate th...
  • Doreen
    I am very excited about and thankful for this book. Tripp writes, “Familiarity tends to rob us of our wonder” (location 38). And that is what happens with Christmas. We lose the wonder of God becoming flesh and coming to earth in human form. We can go through the whole Christmas season without thinking about what it’s really all about.This book can change that. It includes 31 daily advent devotionals that start with a tweet that is fleshed ...
  • Carol
    Come Let Us Adore Him is such a fine, enjoyable yet educational (but you don't feel like you are being schooled) book. I am going to use it this season. I am going to use this book this year. it has a sentence that is about a song, then he tells the wonderful story of JESUS - the author wants you to reawaken in the LORD - to be in awe - and you are - he tells you things in a way like I haven't heard in a while - he also gives you scripture to rea...
  • Stephanie
    This collection of Advent meditations isn’t nearly wrapped or framed around specific characters or stories of the Bible. It’s not an organized exposition about the Christmas story. This is big picture stuff. The fullness of the Christmas story reaching down from creation. A collection of implications—Christmas is about the cross. Christmas is about us juxtaposing our nastiness with his obedience. And 32 different ways of considering in in t...
  • Sarah Norton
    This advent devotional by Tripp was wonderful. Tripp not only told the story of Jesus' birth but went deeper into the why's of Jesus' birth. Tripp spent 31 days digging deep into our total depravity, God's just nature and grace in sending Jesus to take our penalty, why we suffer, why we want peace, why we have hope and so much more. Tripp is approachable is his writing but doesn't hold back, he said a few times "this will probably offend you" and...
  • Ronnie Winterton
    So, I’m not usually a person who gets big into the Christmas season. I like it, but before getting married I really didn’t pay attention to it until like a week before. My wife on the other hand starts the Christmas songs after Halloween. While both tendencies can miss the beauty of the Christmas celebration of the incarnation, this book was a wonderful way to pull away from the crazy of the crazy of the Christmas season and rejoice in Christ...
  • Sally Ewan
    I bought several copies of this, for myself and friends, and I am so glad I did! This was a wonderful addition to my Advent reading. Tripp writes so clearly about the Big Picture of our sinful condition and Christ's rescue. (My only quibble would be his focus on us, rather than on God's glory.) I'll quote the closing sentence here to give you an idea of the content: "May the glorious gospel that is preached to you in the birth of Jesus be the gos...
  • GoneFishingWithJesus
    Praise:Paul Tripp does a good job showing that Jesus was born because of how sinful and helpless to change mankind is. You must first understand the horrible news of mankind's condition before you will rejoice at Christ's coming and the good news of the redemption he accomplished. The discussion questions "for parents and children" at the end of each entry were a great idea. I loved the December 23 entry that was a collection of Christmas carol l...
  • Jonathan Bradley
    This is the Advent Devotional you should get for this Christmas season! While many devotions come and go, this one will stand for years to come. It truly magnifies Christ in that it begins by reflecting our need for a Savior, Jesus Christ, before going into the traditional Christmas devotions regarding the birth of Jesus. The only things that I could see make this even better would be a journaling area and the Scriptures actually in the text, not...
