Tuesday Books: Advent Selections

Advent begins today (Dec. 1st). It is a great time to spend reading with your kids about the birth of our Savior. And there are some great free resources to help you do just that! Let me list a few:

  1. “Behold the Lamb of God” (Russ Ramsey): This book of 25 devotions was inspired by Andrew Peterson’s ‘Behold the Lamb of God’ album (probably my favorite Christmas album). You can download the book for free today here: Behold the Lamb of God.
  2. “The Arrival of the Savior” (wm): I wrote these 25 devotions for my Church a few years back to help us celebrate Advent together. You can get them free here: The Arrival of the Savior.
  3. “Jesus Storybook Bible Advent Calendar”: If you have a copy of the ‘Jesus Storybook Bible’ (Sally Lloyd-Jones) then you can use this free Advent Calendar that coincides with some of the stories here: Jesus Storybook Bible Advent Calendar.
  4. “Solid Joys: Devotions for Advent” (John Piper): Piper is one of my all-time favorite authors and apparently you can get free devotions from him, particularly during the season of Advent: Solid Joys. I found some more from Piper for free here: The Dawning of Indestructible Joy.

I cannot encourage you enough to pick one of these free resources and celebrate the incarnation over these next 25 days. O come let us adore Him!


(I broke the routine and posted this early so you can pick your devotional and get started tonight!)
