Ann Voskamp reaches back into the Old Testament to explore the lineage of Jesus via the Advent tradition of 'The Jesse Tree'. For each day of Advent, this book offers a select Scripture passage, a devotion for children of all ages, and related activity ideas. Beautifully illustrated!
Based on the overwhelming success of The Greatest Gift, Ann Voskamp has expanded her presentation of the timeless Advent tradition of the Jesse Tree so families can celebrate together. Each day, families can read the provided Scripture passage (in connection with the original book), engage with a specially written devotion to help children of all ages understand the Advent theme for the day, and participate in suggested activities to apply the theme.
This special edition is beautifully illustrated. It can serve as a precious guide to help recapture the sacredness of the Advent season and to help the entire family understand and celebrate the epic pageantry of humankind from Adam to the Messiah.
