Churchwide Studies Draw closer to Christ this Christmas by exploring this holiday classic NEW The Gift of the Nutcracker Matt Rawle The Nutcracker was first performed in 1892, and quickly became a holiday tradition, one that continues for many families to this day. In The Gift of The Nutcracker, Matt Rawle takes a look at this Christmas classic in a new way—through the lens of faith. In this four-week Advent study, Rawle uses the iconic tale to help us understand God’s greatest gift of the Christ child and of the kingdom Christ came to build. The study works well for a small group Advent study, but can also be adapted as a churchwide program to include youth and children. Available components include a Leader Guide with complete session plans, a DVD featuring Matt Rawle, a Worship Resources Flash Drive, additional youth and children’s resources, and a Leader Kit. Abingdon Press. Coming in September.

Go from “Bah, Humbug!” to a Blessed Advent and Merry Christmas The Redemption of Scrooge Matt Rawle Ebenezer Scrooge is a man in dire need of a second chance. Is redemption possible for such a greedy, dark, and sad character? The Redemption of Scrooge, a book and four-week study from Matt Rawle’s The Pop in Culture Series, shows us how the teachings of Jesus can be found in Dickens’ Christmas classic. From the ghosts of Christmas past, to the Life of the present, and the resurrection of Christmas future, this Advent study will “bless us every one” and reinvigorate our spiritual journeys as we look at this familiar story through the lens of faith.

Coming home. It sounds like something we do every day, something that most of us take for granted: opening our door and returning to our own space, a safe place. It’s an idea that has everything to do with Advent, a time when we remember the home in God we are always invited to return to. But for so many people, home is far from certain; it may be a concept so unfamiliar it’s impossible to hope for it. This is especially true during the Christmas season...for people from broken homes, for those who live in poverty and situations of violence, home, if the physical place exists, may be a nightmare.

Discover the light of Christmas in a world of hardship and hope NEW Home for Christmas Tales of Hope and Second Chances Justin Coleman Even during hard times, the light of Christmas shines brightly. Home for Christmas shares the real-life stories of formerly incarcerated men and women as they find work and opportunity through Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, California. As we hear about their struggles, we recognize the Advent themes of hope, love, and peace in their lives. This four-session book is ideal for Sunday school, small groups, and home groups as well as for individual study. A comprehensive Leader Guide, a DVD featuring author and pastor Justin Coleman, and a youth resource are available to purchase separately to help you make the most of this special Advent study.

author insights

From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph’s place in the Nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God’s salvation plan for humanity.

Explore the life of Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus Christ Faithful

FOR CHILDREN

Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph Adam Hamilton

FOR YOUTH

We’re not that different from Joseph. True, we may not be part of a story that will be remembered for all time, but like Joseph, we encounter circumstances that we’d never choose for ourselves. At times, it can be tempting just to walk away, but Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand, faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph and learn to accept and glorify God’s will even when our situation makes it difficult to do so. Additional components for a four-week adult study include a comprehensive Leader Guide and a DVD, as well as a Youth Study Book and a Children’s Leader Guide to create an all-church Advent study.

Studies Can you use some true Christmas this Christmas? Because of Bethlehem Love Is Born, Hope Is Here Max Lucado Each year, the Christmas season compels people to ask the Christmas questions. What’s the big deal about the baby in the manger? Who was he? What does his birth have to do with me? Of all the responses to these questions, there is one that stands out from the rest: Because of Bethlehem, God knows what it is like to be a human. When we talk to God about our challenges, our struggles, and our tough times, he understands, because he’s been there. He’s been here. The four sessions in this video-based Advent study remind us of these truths and give us hope. HarperCollins. Also available:

Description Nothing about the Christmas story is ordinary. Mike Slaughter says it’s enough to confound the mind and make the heart contrite. This 4-week Advent study opens up God’s Christmas surprise to us and examines how it changed everything.

This 5-week Advent study helps us think about what we really want for Christmas by reminding us of the amazing, life-changing gifts Christmas has in store for us. The all-church study also includes a DVD, Leader Guide, Youth Study, and Children’s Leader Guide.

God knows what it’s like to be a human. God understands when we talk about our challenges, our struggles, and our tough times. This study reminds us that “everything works together for the good of those who love God.”

Invites readers to explore their yearning for God’s presence through a study of the lectionary readings for Advent and Christmas. Each week’s Scriptures call us to praise God as we actively await the coming of Christ and prepare our hearts and lives.

Explores how Nativity sets, Advent wreaths, Christmas cards, carols, candles, and other traditions help prepare our hearts at Advent with daily prayer, meditation, and reflection questions. Included Leader’s Guide includes discussion questions, worship ideas, and more.

Through powerful and personal reflections, this thematic Bible study for individuals and small groups explores familiar Advent themes by highlighting our responsibility to care for this earth in preparation for Christ’s return.
