We began a new Advent tradition last year when we read Jotham's Journey and are continuing it this year with Bartholomew's Passage. We like how the books show Biblical history and use a main character close to our childrens' ages. We might do a special project here and there, but these books are great for a simple daily devotional time. Our family loves them! Now if you'll just bring the Tabitha book back into print ;-)
This has been a wonderful book!!! We can't just read one section for the day - the kids plead to keep reading and the applications are thought-provoking. The anticipation of the coming Messiah keeps growing.
Our family has had the 3-book set of Bartholomew, Tabitha, and Jotham for years. We light our advent candles and read every evening of advent. These cliff-hanging stories never get old! They are a very special part of family / heart preparation for the Christmas season. We highly recommend these books!
We have used this book for family advent devotions 2 years now. We give it as gifts to families to start off the advent season. It has been helpful in Bible quizzing as the places and events have come up in the Bible quizzing. I highly recommend the book.
