This advent, help your family to understand the birth of Christ as the climactic event of a much larger story — a story about God’s mission to redeem sinful people for his glory.
Tracing Glory: The Christmas Story Through the Bible is a twenty-five-day Advent devotional. It begins looking back at the creation of the world in the book of Genesis and ends looking forward to the new creation in the book of Revelation, tracing the glory of Jesus Christ from start to finish.
In each day’s reading, there is a key Scripture to look up, a devotional commentary to read, a helpful summary highlighting the key point and showing how that particular Bible passage points to Jesus, and questions to prompt discussion with your family. This is a book to treasure that can be used with children of all ages.
With foreword by Nancy Guthrie.

“Every Christian parent wants to teach his or her children the meaning of Advent and Christmas. What we sometimes do, though, is to imply that Christmas is the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ in a way that disconnects it from the rest of the year, and the story from the rest of the Bible. In that case, the Advent story can become like a Nativity scene on the mantle, to be packed away in January until the next year. In this book, Sarah Rice, a brilliant Bible teacher and a wise mom, shows us a better way. This book will help parents and kids to love the Bible and to love Jesus in a way that can last through a whole year’s calendar, and through a whole person’s life.”

"In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, it can be difficult to find time together as a family to focus on Jesus. Thankfully, Sarah Rice has put together a creative and encouraging devotional book, Tracing Glory: The Christmas Story Through the Bible, that allows families a wonderful way to understand how the entire Bible points to Jesus. This book is a welcome resource to help families keep Jesus at the center of our Christmas celebrations!"
