Discover the real story behind the Christmas story. You and your family can discover the big picture of the Bible through this eye-opening, daily reading. Families want Christmas to be more spiritual and less commercial--more about Jesus and less about Santa.We also want to connect Christmas with the Bible. Sure, we read the "Christmas story" from the Gospels, but there's so much more to discover. For Christians, the word "Advent" means the arrival of a notable person. And this arrival was actually foretold 6,000 years ago, in Genesis 3:15.What happens to the Seed between Eden and the arrival in Bethlehem? You and your family can follow this Advent Journey in December, and explore how 64 generations (64 families) prepared for the arrival of Jesus."Many believers think they know all about the Christmas story, but I love this resource because it shows that God's miraculous plan began before Genesis. An eye-opening read that will bring a deeper appreciation for the season." --Dr. Alex Himaya, senior pastor of BattleCreek Church

Waiting Here for You helps us anticipate rather than dread the busy season of Advent and Christmas. Life is full of waiting – we can’t escape it. We find ourselves in the middle of it every day – waiting on a prognosis to be given…a verdict to be reached…a promotion to be announced. And in these seasons of waiting that anxiety, desperation and hopelessness creep in. Waiting Here For You takes us through the advent – the season of waiting. In it we see the story of the coming of Jesus. It teaches us that waiting is the means God often uses to carry his plans in our lives. And it brings us back to the truth that our waiting is never wasted when we are waiting on God. Join pastor and author Louie Giglio and take hold of the chance to uncover the vast hope offered through the journey of Advent. Find peace and encouragement for your soul as anticipation leads toward celebration! Waiting is not wasted when it is waiting with the Lord.

Our culture has made the Advent season a time of physical preparation for the celebration of Christmas, but Advent is so much more than a time for lists, gifts, decorations, and Christmas cards. It is a season of rich, rhythmic preparation for our experience of the touch of God in the world today. You are invited to travel with us through the pages of this book and take an in-depth look at one brief passage of Scripture found in Luke's Gospel. On our month-long journey to Bethlehem, we will discover how to become more aware of and more involved in where heaven touches earth around us, in us, and through us.

The Christmas story we all know doesn't begin in the barn. It's the culmination of centuries of waiting, and the various journeys of some very ordinary but remarkable people towards the most significant moment in human history. This December, our own journey to Christmas isn't so much a physical journey as a travelling of the heart, mind and soul closer to hope, closer to gratitude, and closer to Jesus. Join the 24-7 Prayer team as they lead you through a special month of Scripture-led meditation, reflecting on this ancient but timeless story of wonder, redemption and hope. Beginning on Advent Sunday, journey with Elizabeth and Zechariah, Mary, Joseph, and then the shepherds and the Madi as you P.R.A.Y. your way through December: Pause - remove all distractions, be still and make room to connect with God Rejoice and Reflect - give thanks, before engaging with a short passage of Scripture Ask - bring your questions to God Yield - surrender to God's will for your life As a contemporary take on an ancient practice, the prayers written have been inspired by Christian heroes and traditions throughout the centuries and designed to be returned to daily, making space for Selah(opportunities to pause, wait and respond) to encounter Jesus every step of the journey. Group discussion notes are also included, should you want to go on this Advent journey with others. Written by Pete Greig, Carla Harding, Phil Togwell and Jill Weber

One way of focusing our waiting and our preparing for Christmas is to examine and reflect upon the Gospel readings for the weekdays of Advent. Most of the readings for the first three weeks are taken from Matthew’s Gospel, with a few from Luke’s and one from John’s. Mark’s Gospel fails to feature at all, unfortunately. For the final eight days the excerpts are taken from the Infancy Narratives of Matthew and Luke respectively. I have given the book the title An Advent Journey. The Infancy Narratives describe several journeys. During his subsequent ministry, Jesus seems almost always to be on the move. Luke particularly stresses this journey motif, using it as the framework for exploring aspects of discipleship. I like to view Advent as a time of journeying towards the celebration of Christmas, with the stopping and starting that is typical of every journey, and with the struggle and anticipation which many journeys regularly entail. I have included a final chapter called Journey’s End, in which I address the Gospel readings for the three Masses of Christmas Day. Michael

For hundreds of years it was quiet. Silence that I'm sure was deafening for those that longed to hear God's voice, and to others the silence may have seemed like permission to think and do whatever they wanted to think and do. Either way, the tension of this silence was getting tighter and the longing and aching of the human heart was becoming louder. Soon, but not soon enough, the Word, God, would become skin, muscle and bone and live amongst us, showing us the glory of the Father and his deep love for the human heart. God, the symphony, full of complexity, movement, beauty and power, and infinite in His being, would become a song that we could all hear and see and sing, a folk song, intimate, close, and our hearts would burn inside us. But those before us would have to stand in an unbearable tension. As the human heart cried out for light to break into the dark the fullness of time had come, and God sent His son, born from a woman to buy back the human heart from its varying slaveries, so that we could be named by God alone as sons and daughters adopted and chosen in Christ. God stepped out of heaven and became a vulnerable breakable baby to push back the darkness of the world and call us out of the darkness into an unfathomable light. This gospel must be recalled over and over. We have short memories and are easily distracted with shine and glitter. So we must spend weekly, monthly and yearly rhythms reminding ourselves and each of the of the gospel of Jesus, the power to save. We do this in moments by spending individual time with God, becoming vulnerable to the voice and presence of God in the scriptures. We do this weekly when we gather with the people of God and proclaim again the benefits of feasting on God and forsaking the worlds malnutrition. We also do this "gospel recalling" through the Church Calendar. The most simple way to explain this calendar is to see it as a yearly cycle. Advent is the season we recall longing for a Savior. Christmas is the celebration of the arrival of that Savior. Lent is the journey to the cross and death of that Savior. Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. Pentecost is the moment the Holy Spirit comes and Jesus builds His church in daily massive conversion. The church calendar is one more way to help our scattered minds remember, recall, and renew our love for Gods massive rescue plan. So here we stand in this Advent season, longing for a Savior we know will come. It's not too difficult for many of us to already sense that longing even though the work of Jesus is complete. We stand in a new tension between the rebel feast and the wedding feast. Jesus' work is done, but the Kingdom of God has not yet fully come. This season I want to invite anyone and everyone to journey with us through four weeks of Advent. Step inside the quiet, the longing, the expectation and finally the great fulfillment. It's a little like holding your breath for a long time, waiting to exhale. If you are a human who is quite as broken as I, it becomes such a fresh and marvelous way to approach Christmas. The wide-eyed, jaw dropping, heart pumping miracle of God coming to us in our tattered state and giving our souls worth makes Christmas a new and unique celebration like no other! I pray each of us find the depth of meaning in each beautiful or painful moment in this Christmas season. Be present in the journey friends!
