“Advent is an annual opportunity to awaken us to the wonder of the incarnation. Wonders of His Love is a beautiful, well-crafted book that helps your family slowly meditate on Jesus during this most important season. From vivid illustrations to compelling prose, your children will be drawn to the manger, drawn to the hillsides where the shepherds first heard the news, drawn to the night that changed the world. As you slow down and plan your Christmas, make Wonders of His Love a part of your family worship this year.”Jen Pollock Michel, author of A Habit Called Faith and mother of five
Advent is the perfect time for families to gather together and celebrate the birth of Jesus. Using pictures of Jesus from Isaiah’s prophecies ―the Light, the Branch, the Shepherd, and the Savior― brings to life the true meaning of Christmas.
Hundreds of years before Jesus was born, God spoke to his people through the prophet Isaiah, promising them a Savior. To communicate God’s message, Isaiah used striking, stunning, and surprising imagery ―the “wonders” of his love! Isaiah pointed God’s people to the future, when one day, through his birth, death, and resurrection, Jesus would deliver his people from sin and sorrow forever.
Perfect for busy families with younger children, each week of Advent focuses on one of Isaiah’s images and has readings related to the week’s theme―Jesus the Light; Jesus the Branch; Jesus the Shepherd; Jesus the Savior ―and, on Christmas Day, Jesus the Bread. Each week also includes fun stories, discussion questions, crafts, recipes, games, and suggestions for family service projects.
Written by Champ Thornton and illustrated by Jeremy Slagle, this four-week devotional will draw families closer to Jesus and to each other.
Isaiah’s prophetic words are full of hope for the day when God would restore his people to himself. I love that Wonders of His Love allows families to discover Jesus through the book of Isaiah. It is such a beautiful revelation. This advent book is a fun treasure hunt for children and adults alike! It’s packed full of bible verses, fun actives, crafts, recipes, historical facts, and music. Wonders of His Love is the perfect advent calendar for families to dive deeper into God’s word and illuminate eyes to the truth that the whole Bible points to Jesus, our Hope, and Light of the World.
