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.

The ADVENTure of Christmas is a guide for moms concerned that their children are losing sight of Jesus in the midst of the distractions the holiday season brings. Lisa Whelchel was such a mom, but instead of abandoning the traditions of Christmas she rediscovered their original meanings, which were intended to remind people of God’s unfathomable gift. Hanging lights on the house, wrapping gifts, and decorating the tree have become opportunities to teach her children about how they relate to Jesus’ birth. With The ADVENTure of Christmas, mothers can redeem what’s been lost from the very symbols that are gentle reminders of the true meaning of Christmas. Have you discovered that Jesus sometimes gets lost in the middle of the hustle and bustle of His birthday party? Would you like to be able to keep your children's focus on Jesus and also join them in the wonder of the celebration? For each of the twenty-four days preceding Christmas, The ADVENTure of Christmas serves as a fun and handy guide that describes the significance behind your favorite traditions. Hanging lights on the house, wrapping gifts, and decorating the tree will become opportunities to share how these customs relate to Jesus' birth. The ADVENTure of Christmas recaptures the true meaning of this beloved season, giving reasons to celebrate for years to come. Story Behind the Book Feeling like Jesus had gotten lost in the frenzy of the holiday season, I asked the Lord to show me what I could do to teach my children the true meaning of Christmas. I was caught off-guard when He simply replied, "Don’t do anything differently. Look in the middle of the celebration and you will find Me." He was right. There was no need to orchestrate moments to pontificate about "the commercialization of Christmas." Instead, Jesus is beckoning us to come to the party and bring the kids. In doing so, we run into Him at the mall, the movies, even at school. He hides in the lights, the carols, and the cards. He is there when we dress the evergreen tree, when Dad dresses up in a red suit, and even when we eat turkey and dressing!

What is the most beautiful sight in the world? For some, it's a beach at sunset. For others, it's the masterpiece hanging in an art museum. And for still others, it's the scoreboard showing the home team winning the championship. For Pastor Dave Carver, it's the image he sees each Christmas Eve as God's people sing Silent Night, Holy Night in the glow of their hand-held candles. Christmas Eve is, for Pastor Dave, a glimpse of how things are supposed to be: God's people gathered around the ancient text, the welcoming community, and the ever-living Story of the night that God became one of us. I Will Hold My Candle is a collection of short stories that Pastor Dave has written to help the people in his community engage the Greatest of Stories in new and fresh ways. Listen for the ways in which God's promises ring true in our world and allow Dave's imagination to spur your own. Perhaps you will be able to see your life, or your neighbor, in a whole new light.

"A Gospel Christmas is an undeniable, grace-filled picture of the gospel message, taught in an easy-to-understand format designed not only for the youngest children, but also for the most seasoned adults." - Adrienne Terrebonne, Author of Mommy Has Crinkles With kids in tow it can be quite difficult to rein in the "Holiday" chaos of the Christmas season. Presents, lights, parties, decorations, hosting family, and all the "plastic stuff" we spend an entire paycheck on can get out of control in the blink of an eye. As the holiday pressure grows, you might wonder . . . • How do I teach my children the true meaning of Christmas in a world that calls it a Holiday? • How do I keep all the fun and point them to our Savior at the same time? • Is it possible to connect Baby Jesus, Santa, and even that naughty little Elf? If you have struggled with these questions, then you are in the right place! Join Jennifer on this journey of celebration and watch not only your children, but your whole family embrace the true meaning of Christmas. This is one family's story of how teaching Elfie a little grace, and exploring the life of Jesus through scripture and easy crafts, took their Christmas from self-centered to Kingdom-minded. "Jennifer has penned a tremendous tool for parents to not only teach but become engaged with their children in practical, inspiring ways that will leave indelible marks on their hearts and lives. She employs all five of the senses to drive home some eternal truths of the birth of our Lord and Savior. One has no trouble at all envisioning wide-eyed children as the day to day exercises of learning unfold.
