The 40 short, pithy meditations in this collection witness to the fact that the birth of Jesus is more than history for those who feel their need of him. Christmas is the season of joy for good reason: it is the news of a savior being born, of light breaking into darkness, of God's peace and goodwill to all. But joy is more than merriment. For those who only want to have a good time or a feeling of togetherness, Christmas brings a temporary feeling of cheer. But for those who feel bankrupt, without real meaning or hope - either for themselves or for the world - Christmas can be genuinely life-changing.

Pastor, politician, and author, Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt (1842 1919) with his unconventional ideas about the kingdom of God, profoundly influenced a whole generation of European seekers. Among the luminaries he influenced were Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Emil Brunner, Oscar Cullman, and Karl Barth. Yet his vision and witness are still waiting to be discovered by most Americans, few of whom have had access to his works. He carried forward the work of his father, Johann Christoph Blumhardt (1805 1880), who is regarded by many as the key figure of German pietism.

Delp was a German Jesuit executed by the Nazis for anti-Hitler activities. During his months in prison he composed a series of books.
