|"Faithful: Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph", by Adam Hamilton. This book causes us to think about Joseph, the godly Jewish man whom God chose to be Jesus’s earthly father. Some of the relevant application topics include step-parenting, infidelity, moving, and role-modeling.
This book will give you a fresh view of Christmas in five weeks of Advent study
|"Because of Bethlehem: Love is born, Hope is Here", by Max Lucado. The first chapters describe scenarios that demonstrate life in Lucado’s easy manner from which we can glean Christian truths. The second section is a devotional guide for Advent, one for each week and one for Christmas Eve. The weekly studies are great for individual growth or small group use. Spending a little time in this book can assist you in keeping perspective this holiday season.|
