About the Book

Advent is the four-week season that prepares the church to celebrate Christmas by remembering Jesus’ coming to earth. But the story of Advent really stretches all the way back to Creation and all the way forward to the new heaven and new earth. Woven together, the Bible’s stories show God’s desire to be with His people through history—and lead us all to our Lively Hope.
