This book was written as a devotional resource leading up to Christmas. It aligns not only with the season of Advent, but with Advent’s great expectation of hope in a coming Messiah. Such hope is grounded in the Psalms and in the Law and the Prophets. It is from there that the Old Testament saints looked forward to the coming of Christ the King. And it is to there that the New Testament saints looked back to confirm and understand just what happened in Bethlehem, and ultimately at the cross on Calvary.

Reverend Dr Gary Millar, Principal, Queensland Theological College, Brisbane –
This is a marvellous little book. Phillip and Daniel write clearly, helpfully, warmly and above all faithfully as they set out the beauty, power and significance of the Lord Jesus. If you want to know what Christmas is all about – or simply to keep Christ at the heart of Christmas then this book is for you.
Reverend Dr Wei-Han Kuan, State Director CMS Victoria –
Christians are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. They have also long been known as people of the Book. This delightful little Study guide illuminates the solid connections between various parts of the Bible otherwise separated by thousands of years. It focuses on Jesus and how his life and ministry, death and resurrection, and promised return make sense of everything. Read and savour this book as it directs you to Jesus Christ.
