“Tell the Story” Advent Devotional Book (Free Sample)

AdventDevotional_TellTheStory_BookCoverProducing a Christmas Album gave us the great excuse to put together an Advent Devotional Book for the coming Christmas season. It’s entitled “Tell the Story: An Advent Devotional”, and we hope that it will be an inspiring resource for you to know Jesus better and understand the story of His coming more deeply.

The book contains 30 daily devotionals, designed to be read beginning on the first Sunday of Advent, which this year is November 29th.  Each devotional contains a Scripture passage related to Christmas, a short reflection on that passage, and a suggested prayer.

In addition to the 30 daily readings, there are five family devotionals meant for families to use weekly during Advent, including one for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.  We designed them to be super, super easy to lead–very short, and requiring little or no preparation.

Our Lead Pastor, Jimmy Scroggins, contributed a foreword for the book, in which he talks about the tradition of Christmas celebrations here at Family Church.  Additionally, for people who might be new to this sort of thing, the book has two appendices: one on how to have a personal devotional time with God, and one with suggestions for leading a Family Devotional time.

The devotional passages were written by 30 of our pastors and ministry leaders here at Family Church.  They represent quite a range of wisdom, experience, and perspectives: men and women, younger and older, some theologically trained, some not, from a wide variety of ethnic and family backgrounds. We think you’ll enjoy hearing all the different kinds of voices represented. Check out the list of writers:
