Publisher's Description

Discover Jesus in the Old Testament

Celebrate the hope of Christmas as you witness how God has written the promise of Immanuel, "God with us," into human history! Awaiting the Manger journeys with you through the Advent season, illuminating how God used the lives of ordinary people to foreshadow Christ’s coming during the centuries and even millennia before his birth.

Through daily readings, you’ll dive into Old Testament stories brought to life with vibrant cultural and historical insights. You’ll explore each account first through the perspective of those who lived it, and then by uncovering how it fits into the sweeping arc of our redemption. Each reading is followed by a devotional prompt, including a
  • reflection question to encourage journaling or discussion
  • prayer to spark heartfelt conversation with God
  • Scripture passage for further study
  • Christmas hymn to inspire individual or family worship
Awaiting the Manger will enrich your experience of Advent and your understanding of the Old Testament as you rejoice in the tenderness and compassion God has shown his people from the very beginning.

Editorial Reviews

"What are we waiting for? Israel had been singing, ’O come, O come, Emmanuel’ for centuries. At a time when many are looking for someone or something else, this book is a beautiful meditation on the meaning of Advent. It deserves a wide readership."
—Michael Horton, professor of systematic theology and apologetics at Westminster Seminary, California, and host of Sola Media’s White Horse Inn podcast


"Awaiting the Manger is an invitation to read, reflect, pray, and sing about the glorious wonder of the incarnation for twenty-five days each Advent season. I love Ocieanna’s focus on Old Testament passages that stir in us a yearning for the coming of Christ."
—Karen Hodge, coordinator of women's ministries for the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and author of Transformed: Life-taker to Life-giver and Life-giving Leadership
