Publisher's Description

Anticipate, celebrate, and marvel at Jesus' birth with Three Wise Women, a richly researched and faith-building new devotional by Dandi Daley Mackall. You are invited to spend the 40 days of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany in the company of Mary the mother of Jesus, Elizabeth the mother of John the Baptist, and Anna the prophetess at the temple in Jerusalem. We don’t hear many details directly from these three women at the heart of the first Christmas, but Scripture, studies in biblical culture, and an open heart that asks "what if" allows readers to experience new revelations for the holy season that will encourage and strengthen you in becoming a wise woman of God. 
 
As bestselling author Dandi Mackall reflects on the events and lives of these Three Wise Women, she encourages you to: 
  • Delve deeper into what these real-life women may have experienced 
  • Ponder a new aspect of the journey toward Christ’s birth and beyond through the voices of Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna 
  • Meditate on Old and New Testament Scriptures that speak to women’s hearts across generations and cultures 
  • Grow closer to God through insightful devotional readings about Patience, Hope, Faith, Trust, Persistence, Sacrifice, Joy, Grace, Love, Confidence, and more 
  • Reflect on your own life using the daily "Pondering Questions," as you see the story of Jesus’ birth afresh through the eyes of faithful women 
  • Join with other women in a small group or Bible study to take a faith journey together with Three Wise Women 
An award-winning author, speaker, and passionate scholar of the Scriptures, Dandi shares her heart for Jesus and her own faith journey through this inspired and timely devotional. Beautifully designed with a two-color interior, Three Wise Women is the perfect book to accompany all believers through this holy season of the year, a lovely early Christmas gift, and an excellent resource for women's Bible study groups.

This is a wonderful book." —Bret Lott, author of New York Times bestselling book Jewel and Letters and Life: On Being a Writer, On Being a Christian

Editorial Reviews

"There is something so calming, so thoughtful, so—forgive me—wise about this book that it seems as though it's been here among us for a long time already: a Christmas devotional that brings to us the lives of the three women most important to the birth of our savior: Mary, Elizabeth and Anna. Dandi Mackall has done something important, and beautiful, and good, calling her readers to ponder anew this miraculous season when the gift of all gifts was bestowed upon us all, and to do so through the eyes of the blessed women involved. This is a wonderful book." —Bret Lott, author of New York Times bestselling book Jewel and Letters and Life: On Being a Writer, On Being a Christian

"Chills and tears and just WOW. Three Wise Women is a stunningly beautiful perspective of the three women who take part in the most transformative event of all time, the birth of Christ. Dandi has breathed life and emotions into the portraits of these women as they experience the miracle of the greatest gift this world has ever known. We feel their fear and faith, their worry and wonder, their loneliness and love as they walk through the days that changed the world forever. And by walking with them, I know that we will be changed forever too." —Amy Parker, Bestselling, Award-Winning Children’s Author and podcast host

"The selection of relevant content from both the Old and New Testaments will refresh Biblical truths for those who have repeatedly walked the road to Bethlehem. Yet this same Scriptural base will provide a solid factual framework for those who have barely heard the voices of these three women. I especially appreciated the rich word pictures of life in Middle Eastern culture at the time of Jesus’ birth. Journal entries oozed authenticity as I recalled the imminent urgency to deliver a child as felt by Mary, identified with Elizabeth’s loneliness as her husband served God or reclined at the end of the day with the elderly Anna. In the Author’s Note, Dandi Daley Mackall invites us to ’draw deeper into the heart of God.’ I accepted her invitation to join the Three Wise Women and was blessed." —Dr. Mary Manz Simon, award-winning author, consultant and speaker

"In Three Wise Women, author Dandi Daley Mackall offers readers an insightful volume that can be used for study and reflection through the liturgical seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. Each day's reading has a particular focus which includes pertinent Biblical passages and references, a devotional, and questions for reflection which are capped by a short prayer. The author beautifully weaves the stories of Mary, mother of Jesus, Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist, and Anna the Prophetess in a way that beckons readers to accompany them in their journey of faith and informs and deepens understanding of their lives. Whether used for personal study or shared with a friend or group, Three Wise Women encourages a daily practice which can nurture lives and promote spiritual growth." —Tish Gayle, Inscribed Books & Gifts (Cincinnati, OH)
