The 2016 Advent Devotional from Fresno Pacific University Biblical Seminary is “Calling All Peace-builders.” Authors of the daily meditations include Terry Brensinger, Ph.D., dean of the seminary and Fresno Pacific University vice president; FPU President Richard Kriegbaum, Ph.D.; and seminary and university faculty, alumni and students.

“My colleagues and I have prepared this devotional as a way of praising God for his unfailing goodness and thanking you for your encouragement and support,” writes Brensinger in his introduction. Readings begin November 28 and continue through January 4.

The devotional is available online for download at, and through an Android app on the Google Play store.

The seminary has offered an Advent devotional since 2008 as a resource for alumni as well as USMB congregations, members and others. The devotional seeks to provide spiritual nurture in a commercialized time through daily attention to God and his word. Followers of Jesus are transformed and refocused in a vital and continuing way when contemplating his person and work.
