  • Searching For Christmas

    $5.99

    Discover the awesome God at the heart of the familiar Christmas story and discover the joy, hope, purpose, and belonging we’re all searching for.

    Most of us are familiar with the events of the first Christmas-the manger scene, shepherds watching sheep, angels singing their songs, and wise men arriving-but what if there’s more to the story? What if the birth of Jesus is actually the most significant event in all of history and can transform our lives?

    This evangelistic book goes beyond the birth of Jesus to look at what he did when he grew up and how he fulfilled the names given to him centuries beforehand by the prophet Isaiah.

    In a compelling, insightful, winsome and personal way, J.D. Greear shows that if we get to know the God who lies behind the Christmas story and at the heart of the Christmas story, we’ll discover the joy, hope, purpose and belonging we’re all searching for.

    Readers will see that Jesus is the Wonderful Counsellor, who can guide them in all truth; the Mighty God, who made and owns everything; the Eternal Father, who they can trust to love them for ever; and the Prince of Peace, who died in their place so that they can be forgiven and accepted eternally.

  • Good Tidings Of Great Joy

    $14.99

    Engage with the story of Jesus’ birth in a unique way that’s sure to become a treasured holiday tradition.

    His coming went unnoticed by most people, but it was foretold from ages past.

    His birth wasn’t announced by royal proclamation, but it was lauded by the angels of heaven.

    There were no servants to attend Him, but shepherds left their flocks and wise men left their homes to catch a glimpse of His glory.

    At Christmastime, we gather to celebrate the birth of Jesus, an event that forever changed our world–and the hearts of billions. And there’s no better way to get in the true Christmas spirit than to immerse yourself in the story of His coming. Good Tidings of Great Joy is the story of the first Christmas as told by the Bible. Every word comes from the New King James Version of the Scriptures, but elements have been arranged to create one unbroken narrative, ideal for reading.

    Thoughtfully designed, this book is the perfect addition to your holiday traditions. Read it together as a family or cozy up near the fireplace by yourself to reflect on the day that the Son of God left His heavenly throne to be placed in a humble manger.

  • Making Room Leader Guide

    $14.99

    Learn how to make room in your heart for God and neighbor this Christmas.

    Often our Advent preparations have an inward focus as we prepare for the significance of God breaking into our world through the birth of the Christ child. But in a closer examination of the Advent story, we quickly learn that the focus of the coming of the newborn king is outward.

    In this book and Advent study, Dr. Ed Robb explores the warmth of welcome at Christmas following interactions with Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, and the magi. Just as Jesus made room in God’s kingdom for a host of people that society wanted to leave on the margins, beginning with the appearance of the shepherds, we too should be asking ourselves who we can make room for this Christmas.

    Perhaps it is to the people in your community, or the newly immigrated family in town that doesn’t speak your language. Or maybe it’s the next-door neighbor who just settled in from yet another corporate move? The story of Christ’s birth encourages us to widen our borders and increase our sense of community-and make room for others.

    The Leader Guide contains everything needed to guide a group through the four-week study including session plans, activities, and discussion questions, as well as multiple format options.

  • Let Us Go Now To Bethlehem

    $14.99

    This charming devotional book takes readers on an inward journey to the miracle of Christ’s birth in the little town of Bethlehem. Many who will read this book probably haven’t actually traveled to Bethlehem. But that is of little consequence to the adventure of arriving there, to the adventure of discovery that awaits the mystery and wonder in the birth of Jesus, Todd Outcalt writes. I hope readers can discover something new that they may have overlooked in the old, old story, says Outcalt.

    Let Us Go Now to Bethlehem contains devotions from Advent through Epiphany. As the Gospel of Luke attests, Let Us Go Now to Bethlehem is both an expectant declaration filled with mystery and faith. Each day can offer these same expectations and wonders for readers if they open themselves to awe and joy.

  • Characters Of Christmas

    $13.99

    Learn Something New This Christmas. Every year we sit around our over-ornamented trees, read the Christmas story (usually from Luke 2), and talk about Jesus and Mary and Joseph.

That’s what The Characters of Christmas is all about. Each chapter explores a different perspective on the coming of Christ by looking through the eyes of an oft-overlooked character in the story. You’ll learn interesting background information, discover new aspects of the story, and consider questions you never thought about before. You’ll be amazed at how God used ordinary, everyday people to bring His Son into the world.

    God Is With Us, originally published in 2016, invites you to explore your longing for God’s presence through a study of the lectionary Bible readings for Advent and Christmas. The hope of Advent is the fulfillment of that longing; we await the coming of Jesus as Immanuel, God With Us.

Hope is the focus of Advent worship, study, and prayer. We will discover the light that began in the manger, which continues as we look forward with hope to Christ’s return.

    God Is With Us is based on the Revised Common Lectionary Scriptures for church year A, the first of a three-year cycle of Bible readings. The study includes commentary and reflection on readings from the Old Testament, the Gospels, and the Epistles. It offers the opportunity to explore these Bible readings in a five-session study.

  • Wondrous Mystery : An Upper Room Advent Reader

    $9.99

    During Advent we think about a wondrous mystery: that God chose to become human and lived among us. The Savior of the world was born a vulnerable child. The king who will rule all of creation lies in a humble manger. The Wondrous Mystery invites readers to reflect on several paradoxes that make up the Advent season: light and darkness, peace and strife, solitude and community, simplicity and complexity.

    This daily Advent reader incorporates meditations from Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life. Writers include Barbara Brown Taylor, Henri J. M. Nouwen, Esther de Waal, Walter Wink, Sue Monk Kidd, Wendy M. Wright, and other voices from Weavings, which wove together the teachings and perspectives of some of the finest theologians and teachers of Christian spiritual formation.

    Compiler Ben Howard writes, The glory of the Advent season is that it is irrational. It shows us a glimpse of the way that God turns the world and our expectations upside down. . . . In a season filled with the longest, darkest nights, we are told to wait for the coming of the most beautiful light.

These people needed rescue, but they weren’t waiting for the stars to align or for the political climate to change. They were waiting for God. They were on his timetable. He was sending his Messiah-Immanuel, God with us.For centuries God’s people awaited the coming of a Savior. In the midst of a world of trouble, they hoped for one who would deliver them from evil and restore them to true life. Would God be faithful to his promises? Pastor Russ Ramsey narrates anew the greatest story ever told-the true tall tale of the coming of the Christ. It’s more than the story of a baby born in Bethlehem; the story encompasses the whole of the Old Testament and all of human history, unveiling God’s longsuffering, loving pursuit of his people. Rediscover how the purposes of God culminated in the coming of Jesus, in twenty-five readings ideal for Christmas or any season of meeting the Savior.Also including The Passion of the King of Glory and The Mission of the Body of Christ, the Retelling the Story series explores the narrative arc of the Bible from Genesis through Revelation in compelling language that is faithful to the text of Scripture. The stories are told afresh to help readers hide God’s word in their hearts by way of their imaginations.

  • Unwrapping The Names Of Jesus

    $12.99

    Help for focusing on Christ during Christmas

    Most Christians agree that Christmas is all about Jesus, but most of us spend little time preparing our hearts to celebrate Him. Why is this? Quite simply, because no one taught us how.

    In Unwrapping the Names of Jesus, Asheritah Ciuciu leads readers through the four weeks of Advent (Hope, Preparation, Joy, and Love) by focusing each day’s reflection on one name of Jesus. Each week begins with an interactive family devotional followed by five daily reflections, as well as suggestions for fun-filled family activities or service projects to enhance a family’s Advent experience.

    Whether you use this devotional in your own personal worship time or as a tool to engage in family worship during the busy holiday season, you will gain a greater sense of awe and wonder at who Jesus is.

    By focusing on the person and character of Jesus throughout the Advent season, your heart will be prepared to rejoice. When you admire a live nativity, sit in a candlelight service, or wake up on Christian morning, you can join the faithful who have gone before us and sing from the bottom of your heart, O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!
