Day by day through the Advent season, you and your family can prepare for Christmas by reading Bartholomew’s spellbinding story.
Follow him from when Roman soldiers destroy his village and disperse his family, through his enslavement to a tyrannical master and his escape with his new friend, Nathan, to his reunion with his family, and a wonderful climax in Bethlehem. Along the way Bartholomew makes a new pal, Jotham, whom many readers have grown to love in Jotham’s Journey.
This family Christmas story and devotional includes a portion of the story-always a cliffhanger-for every day of Advent and for Christmas day, reflections for family devotions, and ideas for family Advent customs.
Following each chapter is a spiritual reflection that gives readers an opportunity to respond personally to a spiritual truth embedded in the story. Ideal for family devotions.
