I love Christmas books, Christmas tales, Christmas movies! There is just something wonderful about a good Christmas story. And what better way to start off this joyful season than with the story of the very first Christmas, and the history leading up to it.
Thousands of readers have already fallen in love with Ann Voskamp’s “One Thousand Gifts,” and this Christmas, Ann will help readers celebrate the lineage and the majesty of God’s greatest gift–Jesus Christ. In what is sure to become an instant holiday classic, Voskamp reaches back into the pages of the Old Testament to explore the lineage of Jesus via the advent tradition of “The Jesse Tree.” Beginning with Jesse, the father of David, “The Greatest Gift” retraces the epic pageantry of mankind, from Adam to the Messiah, with each day’s reading pointing to the coming promise of Christ. Sure to become a holiday staple in every Christian home, “The Greatest Gift” is the perfect gift for the holidays and a timeless reminder of the true meaning of Christmas.
Seeing God’s hand in orchestrating the events of history to give us the Greatest Gift is amazing. This book walks you though the “Jesse Tree” as you follow the line of Christ up until His birth. It’s written as a book to read one chapter a day during December. I love reading this book each December. It gives a clearer, fresh look at Christmas. I can’t wait for December to start so I can begin reading it again!
