Gardner-Webb Presents 2018 Advent Devotional Book

Advent Reflections

Gardner-Webb University is proud to present the 2018 Advent Devotional as a guide for reflecting on the birth of Jesus Christ and focusing on the holy blessings of the Christmas season.

The daily Advent readings are available as a traditional printed booklet and online in digital format.

Throughout the devotional, the University’s students, faculty and staff members offer perspectives on the Advent season. Each day’s entry provides a personal reflection by a Gardner-Webb writer and includes suggested scriptures for further study.

Dr. Jim McConnell, associate professor of New Testament interpretation, coordinated the GWU School of Divinity’s effort to produce the devotional, along with Lisa Hollifield, School of Divinity administrative assistant, Dr. Cal Robertson, associate professor of biblical studies, and Dr. Danny West, professor of preaching and pastoral studies.

“My hope for the booklet is that it would serve to enrich folks’ celebration of Advent and cause them to pause and reflect on the gift of life in Christ that is offered to all people,” McConnell shared.
