  • 1st Songs Of Christmas

    $14.99

    Let the songs of the first Christmas turn your heart toward God’s glory.

    During the holidays, the songs of the season are everywhere. Their nostalgic melodies warm our hearts. But the original Christmas songs are different; they lift our hearts to a holy God. They reveal the greatness, glory, and goodness of our Savior. Taking us beyond quaint imagery and feel-good lyrics, the Advent songs of the Bible unfold God’s redemptive plan for the world and His eternal purpose for the ages.

    In The First Songs of Christmas, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth offers meditations from Luke’s gospel. This 31-day Advent devotional shines light on the ancient yet inspiring songs of Elizabeth, Mary, Zechariah, the angels, and Simeon.

    These readings will lead you to the essence of Christmas. Let holy music be your companion as you approach Christmas the way these men, women, and angels did: gazing upon our God and Savior.

  • Good News Of Great Joy

    $13.99

    It’s hard to imagine Advent or Christmas without music, and that goes beyond popular carols and handbells. Author Max Vincent invites readers to discover the music in the biblical story of Christmas. Four canticles (little songs) precede, announce, and celebrate the birth of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. These canticles invite readers to pause and consider the deeper meaning of the events surrounding his birth.

    In Good News of Great Joy, 24 daily readings explore the context, content, and spirituality of these canticles. Each of the four canticles has six daily readings. The daily readings include practices and questions to encourage further reflection on these little songs. In addition, the book provides a Leader’s Guide for group study.

    Luke’s canticles were some of the earliest songs of the church and are still prayed daily in some Christian traditions. Vincent encourages readers to pause and notice God’s comforting presence as they reflect on these joyous songs of Advent.

  • Surprising God : Advent Devotions For An Uncertain Time

    $14.00

    The world is slowly emerging from the worst global emergency in a century, and the myriad struggles of the contemporary moment-division, isolation, illness, and uncertainty-make living our faith a challenge. For Christians, a number of questions have gained new urgency: Where do we find hope when it seems in such short supply? Where are the signs of God’s peace in this divided world? Where do we find a deeper sense of joy?

    Thomas G. Long and Donyelle C. McCray remind us that these are the questions of Advent in their new daily devotional, A Surprising God. Mindful of the stresses of life today in a world torn apart by conflict, marked by political division, and in the midst of a global health crisis, these devotions for Advent and Christmas invite readers to honest reflection on the challenges of being people of faith in this moment. Long and McCray explore what it means to wait for our salvation, to be open to the surprising thing that God is about to do, and to find hope in God’s choice of the small and the insignificant.

  • Good Tidings Of Great Joy

    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.

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.

  • Honest Advent : Awakening To The Wonder Of God-With-Us Then, Here, And Now

    $18.99

    For those who are looking for something honest, something real, something with a little more human grit to it and a little less conventional red and green: Honest Advent offers a new kind of devotional.

    For too many of us, Christmas has lost its wonder. Maybe for you, the joy of the season is painfully dissonant with the hard edges of life right now. Or maybe you feel wearied by the way Christmas has become a polished, predictable brand. Or maybe this sacred story feels too far removed from our world today, a world that’s hard to make sense of.

    But what if the Christmas story is not just something that happened a long time ago . . . but a story that is still happening today? Honest Advent: Awakening to the Wonder of God-with-Us Then, Here, and Now illuminates the astonishing, hope-filled truth that the God who showed up in the hardest parts of our humanity is still doing so today.

    From celebrated artist-storyteller Scott Erickson: 25 days of heart-stirring images and thought-provoking meditations to rekindle the wonder of God-with-Us in this season. Honest Advent creates a space for you to encounter the Incarnate Christ in unexpected places: like a pregnancy announcement in an era of political unrest and empirical bloodshed, the morning sickness of a Middle Eastern teenager, and the shocking biology of birth that goes far beyond the sanitized brand of Christmas as we know it.

    Then, through powerful benedictions, prayers, and questions for honest reflection, you will discover how the wonder of God-with-Us is still happening today: in your unexpected change of plans, your unaccomplished dreams, your overcrowded lodging, your humble stories of new beginnings. In a world that’s difficult to make sense of, and a season that’s so often overtaken by consumerism, find here fresh eyes to see this powerfully sacred story.

    Jesus appeared in a way no one expected: incarnating by way of human vulnerability. He does the exact same thing in our lives today: bringing light and life through our ordinary everyday vulnerabilities.

  • 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.

  • 2000 Year Old Preacher Cycle B

    $15.95

    I am old and ready to die. To be truthful, I have been ready to die for years, but right now, I feel ready as I have never been before.

    This quote was taken from one of David Leininger’s sermons titled Simeon: A Monologue, in which he takes at one of the most well-known stories in the Bible, Jesus’ Visit to the Temple, and looks at it from a new perspective. Throughout The 2000 Year Old Preacher, he invites his audience to do the same, observing this holiday season from a new angle.

    Consider the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and her status as the favored one of God. In his sermon, Mary’s Complaint, Leininger references how the favored mother of Jesus does not complain during her complications as she carries the Son of God, but continues to praise His name and remain grateful for the privilege that she had been given.

    Leininger uses a variety of topics to ask his congregation to view their lives from a new perspective, using sermons such as:
    *Advent 3: Hark the Herald…What? (John 1:6-8, 19-28)
    *Nativity of Our Lord: God Bless Santa! (Luke 2:1-20)
    *Epiphany 5: Heroines of the Faith (Mark 1:29-39)

    So take a step back from viewing the forest and look at the trees, have a seat at the feet of God, and experience new worlds that Leininger paints with his words of wisdom throughout The 2000 Year Old Preacher.

    Acknowledge your gift. Use your gift for the benefit of others and to the glory of God who has ‘gifted’ you. People may not long remember your name. They may never know your name. But your gift to them will last forever.

    Throughout his collection of Advent centered sermons, Ronald Love reminds us to consider all of the gifts that God has given us and to use that which makes us unique to spread the word of God. Although it might be an intimidating task to preach about Jesus to those who may believe differently, Love calls to mind the talents that God has granted us in order to do just that. He reveals that the idea of preaching to others is not an invitation from the Lord but is instead a commandment from God: What we have is a mandate to preach the gospel to all individuals.

    Even if you do not believe that you are qualified enough to spread the word, God knows that he chose the right person for the job when he created you and me. Instead of doubting ourselves, love encourages us to be like Paul in his letters to the Corinthians: Paul’s attitude was that nothing will stop him from proclaiming the good news! Paul’s attitude was that no obstacle would stop him from offering the message of salvation! Paul’s attitude was that he would remain steadfast in his call to be an apostle–an ambassador–for the Lord!

    Sermon titles include:
    *Be Near, Ye Faithful (1 Thessalonians 5:16-24)
    *The Abounding Grace of God (Ephesians 1:3-14)
    *A Child of God (1 Corinthians 8:1-13)

    This Advent season, remember your talents, and share what you have been given with others in order to spread God’s word, just as Love uses his gifts to help us grow closer to Jesus at the time of his birth.

  • 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. But what about the other guys? What about the shepherds and the wise men, Simeon and Anna, and Herod? What’s the deal with those characters? And what can they teach us about Jesus? 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. Break free from the familiar this year, and discover something you never knew about the story you’ve always heard.

  • Freedom Is Coming

    $20.99

    ‘Comfort, O comfort my people. . . In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord.’

    The second part of the book of Isaiah rings with proclamations and prophecies that find their fulfilment in the Gospels and are still being fulfilled by followers of Jesus today.

    Nick Baines invites you to think about what it meant for people in Isaiah’s day to be living in exile, and how the prophet encouraged them to keep their faith alive despite the apparent hopelessness of their situation.

    At the same time, this book helps you to see the connections between Isaiah’s time and ours, and how his vision of God’s truth and justice spreading throughout the world can comfort, challenge and inspire God’s people now, just as it did back then.

    Read this book and find out how you too can become a ‘light to the nations’ as, once again, we approach the celebration of Christ’s birth and the new world that God has promised to bring into being.

  • Wondrous Mystery : An Upper Room Advent Reader (Large Type)

    $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.

  • Low : An Honest Advent Devotional

    $5.99

    Amidst the bright lights and wrappings of a sentimentally saturated Christmas season, we tend to forget about the gritty, messy reality of the Advent story as it was experienced 2,000 years ago. In this honest Advent devotional, best-selling progressive Christian author John Pavlovitz reminds us that God came to meet us in the low places of our lives — and that Jesus continues to come low this Advent season. When we plant our feet firmly in the dirt of everyday life, we see Jesus meeting us in the low places: when we live humbly, when we seek forgiveness, in our grief and suffering, when we act on behalf of someone else, when we pray. As we walk the road of Advent, Jesus reminds us the invitation is not to escape this world to an elevated Heaven somewhere else, but to bring Heaven down. God with us is Jesus, getting low. Each devotional includes a scripture and Advent reflection on Jesus meeting us on the ground.

  • Behold The Child Daily Devotions

    $2.49

    Jesus’ incarnation means more than that He was born to a young mother who had no place to lay Him other than a manger. It means that we have comfort knowing that this fully human Child can relate to our struggles, and we have hope knowing that the same fully divine Child paid for our sins on the cross.

    This Advent, help your congregants reflect on the miracle that was Jesus’ incarnation. The devotional book is part of the Behold the Child worship planning series, which allows the busy preacher to bring to his congregation the answer to the question that is heard in the church during Advent: Who is this King of glory? (Psalm 24:8-10). The devotional book aligns with the sermons, Bible studies, and worship services in the series to help congregants meditate on the weekly themes during the entire Advent season.
