Rev. Adam Hamilton developed a thought provoking study, packed full of insights for those of us who may have become lazy regarding Christmas. The intertwining of Biblical, archeological and cultural nuances really helped me and our Bible study group better understand what God teaches us through the conception and birth of Jesus Christ. I highly recommend this study and the complementary DVD and daily devotional.
Adam Hamilton's book is very good -- apparently well researched and thought provoking. However, the CBD e-book platform is not user friendly. Highlighting and inserting notes are more cumbersome/difficult in CBD's format than in iBooks.
I facilitated 3 different groups plus used children's book during sermon time and it was so wonderful. A variety of faith walks made discussion very meaningful at this time of the year. The books & dvd will go into our church library for use in the future for those who were not able to attend at this time.
Adam Hamilton's Journey takes the reader on an adventure to the past to experience the joys and sorrows experienced by the characters participating in the birth of Jesus. When accompanied by his video and leaders guide for the Journey to Bethlehem it makes for an excellent study for advent.
