For to us a child is born, to us a son is given.'The birth of Jesus would change the course of history forever. But what did it mean for those who held Him - God incarnate - in their own hands? This Advent, explore the Christmas Bible texts through the eyes of those who personally encountered the majesty and mystery of the incarnation, such as Mary, Anna, the shepherds and Joseph. Discover a new perspective on these familiar yet world-changing events, which show us how deeply God understands our humanity and moved to meet us in it. Each of the 31 daily readings includes a prayer, a Bible reading, questions to ponder and an imagined monologue from one of the Bible characters. Divided into four sessions, which are accompanied with group study notes, this guide is ideal for both small group and individual use, giving opportunity for seasonal thought, prayer and discussion.
