In this four-week Advent study, author Richard B. Wilke focuses on people in the story of Christs birth. There are those we associate with the joy and celebration of Christmasthe wise men, the shepherds, and Joseph. Yet the author reminds us not to forget that the evil King Herod is also part of the Christmas story, and how it is because there is evil in our world that we so desperately neededand needa Savior.
Each lesson includes a key scripture, brief reflection, questions to discuss, a suggested Christmas carol, and a prayer.
