The Promise of Christmas
25 Reflections for Advent
by John Greco
Delight in the promise of a Savior as you prepare your heart for Christmas this Advent season.
You’ve heard the Christmas story over and over. You think you know it, but do you? The Promise of Christmas may surprise you!
John Greco invites you to join him in savoring the wonder of each account of Christ’s birth. He pulls from the Old and New Testaments, weaving together the wonderful threads of promise, hope, and fulfillment. From well-loved details to something surprisingly new, John reveals how much we may miss by rushing through this holiday season.
“When we come to the Christmas story in the Bible, the scenes are familiar—so familiar that many of us can no longer see the elements that make it such a great story. It’s like a gingerbread house that we’ve all forgotten is made of candy. We enjoy it on one level—that of a beautiful and meaningful account of the Savior’s birth—but we miss it on all the others. There is more to be enjoyed in the story of the first Christmas if we’ll stop, break off a piece, and chew on it for a while. The readings on the pages that follow are an attempt to help us do just that.”
Make this Christmas one where you savor the story and listen for God's voice.
