In this four-week Advent study, author Richard B. Wilke focuses on people in the story of Christs birth. There are those we associate with the joy and celebration of Christmasthe wise men, the shepherds, and Joseph. Yet the author reminds us not to forget that the evil King Herod is also part of the Christmas story, and how it is because there is evil in our world that we so desperately neededand needa Savior.
Each lesson includes a key scripture, brief reflection, questions to discuss, a suggested Christmas carol, and a prayer.

If your group does homework between sessions, it's only about 20 minutes of homework each week. If you cover all the material in class, the leader can probably read or highlight the entire session. Each participant or couple should have their own copy. The author provides solid Biblical background and yet provides historical and cultural background, I had not studied before. Most importantly he provides relevant thought provoking questions for today, that gets the participant thinking beyond the sometimes shallowness of the season. I rated the product quality a 3 because it's not visually engaging. But don't be swayed by the lack of glitz. There's meat in this study. Finally this study is "turn key" ready with little outside prep for the leader and thoughtful prayers provided for each session.
