The Promise of Christmas
25 Reflections for Advent
by John Greco
The Christmas Story as You’ve Never Heard It
Maybe we have heard the Christmas story too many times. It’s familiar. It gets lost in wrapping paper scraps, stringed lights, and family drama. But then again, maybe we’ve never heard the story completely.
In The Promise of Christmas, John Greco unfolds the promises of Advent as found throughout the Bible. With surprising insights, he challenges the mundane and carbon copy scenes we’re familiar with, suggesting there is the rest of the story to tell.
“We’re missing out if we gloss over certain points or ignore how God himself tells the story. No matter how comfortable and familiar our nativity scenes may be, we’re only cheating ourselves if we hold on to tradition at the cost of truth.”
With 25 readings, The Promise of Christmas can draw your attention away from the chaos to a Promise, a Gift, a Son, who changed the world and can change you too.
Engage with the Christmas story as you may never have heard it. With insights from the Old and New Testaments, John Greco brings to life the historicity and beauty of the birth of Christ and how it relates to us today. The Promise of Christmas offers twenty-five readings that will prepare your heart for the birth of the King.
