Before Christmas: Journey Back to the Beginning

ArynFaith, Christian Nonfiction1 Comment

I can’t quite believe that today’s the last day of #ChristianBooktober!! And we’re celebrating with “Before Christmas” which I’m very excited about!

I love the fact that someone has written an ‘Advent’ book, that begins at the beginning of the Adventure.

It’s traditional to begin in Nazareth, or even in Jerusalem with Zacheriah. But there’s so much that comes before that, that sets the stage for Christmas. Christ With Us.

(In case you were wondering, Christmas is my favorite season!!!)

Before Christmas

Embrace the majesty of the Messiah

Bill Crowder invites you to explore the backstory of the first advent. He brings you on a journey into the very heart of God, to a greater understanding of what it means that “the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world” (1 John 4:14).

 Walk through Scripture to see and know Jesus in a richer way. Examine His character as God, His relationship with the Father, His appearances in the Old Testament, and more. Understand how these pre-Bethlehem truths lead into the Savior’s birth and the events of that first Christmas—and, most importantly, how it all comes together in God’s great story of redemption and rescue.

 You’ll embrace the majesty of the Messiah and celebrate Christ’s birth with renewed joy and wonder.

During my years as a pastor, I found Christmas and Easter to be challenging. Certainly I love those seasons (for very different reasons) but finding creative ways to retell these important stories was often difficult. But, at one such season, I realized that the story we tell at Christmas is not really the whole story. By entering the story at Nazareth or Bethlehem, we enter too late. We can’t simply start with the Baby in the manger—we need to go back. Before time began. To the eternal Christ. Unless we seek to understand Him, we’ll never fully appreciate who He was and why He came. That is the Christmas story.  – Bill Crowder

We Have to GO Back to the Beginning; Before Christmas!
