Product Description

Family devotions can be hard to schedule and plan - and doing so in a meaningful way can be especially difficult during the days and weeks leading up to Christmas. As you guide your family through this season, Anticipating His Arrival helps you and your family remember his first advent on Christmas and prepare for his second coming, celebrating and anticipating both events.

Each day's Scripture reading includes discussion questions with accompanying responses to make it easy for you to engage the themes of preparation, anticipation, joy, and incarnation throughout the season of Advent. The reading schedule which begins the first Sunday of Advent and ends on Christmas Day, has been adapted from the Revised Common Lectionary and includes devotions for all three years in the liturgical cycle, with every year drawing on the Synoptic Gospels.

Editorial Reviews

"Having used Anticipating His Arrival around the dinner table with my family, I look forward to making use of it again this year and am delighted to see this devotional in print for a wider audience. Too often, devotionals centered around the Christmas season lack the anticipatory nature that Advent is meant to invoke. Brannan's cycle of preparation, anticipation, joy, and incarnation--combined with a rich selection of passages that span the width of the Scriptures--makes this a devotional that will serve and enrich many families."
--H. Daniel Zacharias, Ph.D., assistant professor of New Testament studies, Acadia Divinity College
"During the time of Advent, many people reflect on the coming of the Lord and His incarnation. In Anticipating His Arrival, Rick Brannan has thoughtfully reflected upon OT and NT Bible passages that will surely stir the hearts and minds of God's people. This family guide is an easy and brief way to prepare for the Advent season by being led through Bible passages and thoughtful questions on select Scriptures. Using the Revised Common Lectionary, families are guided through this devotional material for a three-year lectionary cycle. This will become a wonderful addition to the traditions of my family each year."
--Shawn J. Wilhite, assistant professor of Christian studies, California Baptist University
