The Characters of Christmas: The Unlikely People Caught Up in the Story of Jesus by Daniel Darling
We hate to admit it, but after years, sometimes even decades, of reading the same Luke 2 story of Christmas, we get a little bored—we lose some of the awe we ought to have when discussing the greatest miracle in history. That’s why The Characters of Christmas was written, to help you take a fresh look at the Christmas story by getting to know the minor characters that played a part in Jesus’ birth, such as Zechariah and Elizabeth, the Shepherds, and Herod.
As you slow down, engage your imagination, and enter into the stories of these women and men, you’ll see the most important character—Jesus Christ—with new eyes. And with discussion questions and a Christmas song suggestion at the end of each chapter, it’s perfect for engaging your whole family.
Break free from the familiar, and discover something you never knew about the story you’ve always heard.
The God of the Garden: Thoughts on Creation, Culture, and the Kingdom by Andrew Peterson
There’s a strong biblical connection between people and trees. They both come from dirt. They’re both told to bear fruit. In fact, arboreal language is so often applied to humans that it’s easy to miss, whether we’re talking about family trees, passing along our seed, cutting someone off like a branch, being rooted to a place, or bearing the fruit of the Spirit. It’s hard to deny that trees mean something, theologically speaking.
This book is in many ways a memoir, but it’s also an attempt to wake up the reader to the glory of God shining through his creation.
One of the first commands to Adam and Eve was to “work and keep” the garden. Award-winning author and songwriter Andrew Peterson, being as honest as possible, shares a story of childhood, grief, redemption, and peace, by walking through a forest of memories: “I trust that by telling my story, you’ll encounter yours. Hopefully, like me, you’ll see that the God of the Garden is and has always been present, working and keeping what he loves.”
Sometimes he plants, sometimes he prunes, but in his goodness he intends to reap a harvest of righteousness.
Every Age, Every Stage: Teaching God’s Truth at Home and Church by Ken Hindman, Landry Holmes, and Jana Magruder
Today’s parents feel ill-equipped to spiritually train and educate their preschoolers, elementary kids, and teenagers. Based on the principle that kids and teens learn and comprehend concepts differently as they grow in maturity, Every Age, Every Stage provides an age-suitable discipleship approach, equipping parents to teach their children biblical truths from the ten concept areas of God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Bible, Salvation, Creation, Church, People, Family, and Community and World.
The wise discipleship plan presented in Every Age, Every Stage is known as the Levels of Biblical Learning©. This framework for babies through teens was developed over a period of several years by thought leaders in preschool, kids, student, and next-gen ministries. The Levels of Biblical Learning been taught at workshops, colleges, and seminaries, and incorporated in Bible Study curriculum.
The book also will assist ministry leaders and teachers as they prepare a vision for their ministries and teach biblical concepts in the classroom, putting children and teens on the right path to a life of growth in biblical knowledge.
