author insights

I love Christmas. I like the candles. I like the trees. I even like the shopping. But I particularly love Christmas because I love the stories...the accounts...the different accounts we get in the Gospel of Matthew and we get in the Gospel of Luke and we get also from post-biblical church legends. If I, as an outsider to the Christian tradition, can find such marvel, such wonder, and such joy in these chapters in Matthew and Luke, how much more so should people who are members of the church or followers of Jesus be able to smile, indeed laugh, when they read these stories?

Dive deep into the history of the birth of Christ NEW Light of the World

A Beginner’s Guide to Advent Amy-Jill Levine Advent is not only the perfect time to read the story of the birth of Jesus; it’s also a great time to dive deeper into the biblical texts that surround the event. In Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine shows how the Gospel narratives connect to the Old Testament; highlights the role of women in first-century Jewish culture; and emphasizes the importance of Mary’s visitation, the census, the stable, the star of Bethlehem, and the flight to Egypt. A rich and challenging learning experience for the individual reader, the book also makes a wonderful, four-week Advent group study with the additional Leader Guide and DVD. Abingdon Press. Coming in September.

Churchwide Studies about the study

The authors break down the barriers that prevent us from experiencing an “altogether” love, hope, joy, and peace in Christ in our lives and in the world around us. They demonstrate the promises God offers to us that make those longings a reality, inviting us to claim those promises for ourselves this Advent and celebrate an altogether Christmas. DEVOTIONS

Make your Wesleyan heritage a part of your Christmas

NEW Almost Christmas Devotions for the Season

NEW Almost Christmas

The companion devotional contains 28 daily devotions for the four weeks of Advent corresponding to the themes of Altogether Love, Altogether Hope, Altogether Joy, and Altogether Peace. Written by pastors and other leaders, the devotions celebrate and bring together the season of Advent and the best of our Wesleyan heritage. Abingdon Press. Coming in September.

A Wesleyan Advent Experience Magrey R. DeVega, Ingrid McIntyre, April Casperson, and Matt Rawle In John Wesley’s famous sermon, “The Almost Christian,” he encouraged people to follow Christ wholeheartedly. In Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience, author and pastor Magrey deVega leads a group of authors in exploring how we can make the same commitment to Christ during Advent, and connect our Wesleyan heritage with the traditional Advent themes of Love, Hope, Joy, and Peace.

Go from “Bah, Humbug!” to a Blessed Advent and Merry Christmas The Redemption of Scrooge Matt Rawle

FOR YOUTH

Ebenezer Scrooge is a man in dire need of a second chance. Is redemption possible for such a greedy, dark, and sad character?

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

Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph Adam Hamilton 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. 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.

Studies In a season filled with the longest, darkest nights, we await the coming of the most beautiful light NEW The Wondrous Mystery An Upper Room Advent Reader Benjamin Howard, compiler

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. Upper Room Books.

This study of the lectionary Bible readings for Advent and Christmas calls us to praise God as we actively await the coming of Christ, prepare our hearts and lives for his arrival, and claim and celebrate the new hope we have in Jesus Christ. Abingdon Press. Coming in September.

In Isaiah 9:6, a divine utterance is given to us using four royal titles— Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Names for the Messiah ponders each title and how the people understood it then, how Jesus did or did not fulfill the title, and how Christians interpret Jesus as representative of that title.

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 videobased Advent study remind us of these truths and give us hope. Thomas Nelson.

Each devotional includes a Scripture and Advent reflection on Jesus meeting us on the ground. Chalice Press.

This book offers a short daily meditation for the First Sunday of Advent through Christmas Day, each based on a psalm that corresponds to the daily office for the season of Advent. Church Publishing.

Beginning with Advent 2019 and continuing through the 2020 calendar year, this daily devotional combines readings from the Scripture of the day with reflections to provide a few minutes of solace for quiet prayer and meditation.
