Order The Weary World Still Rejoices
The debut book from Amanda Geidl: friend of Jesus, wife, mama, and writer. The Weary World Still Rejoices explores the characters and scenes of the Christmas Story in 25 daily readings. Questions follow each reading to aid you in your own discovery of who Jesus is, how much He loves you, and with opportunities to respond to Him.
About the Book
Who is Jesus?
Where did He come from? What is the mystery behind His birth? Who were the key players in his story, and how do their journeys help us in ours? In this book, I explore the identity of Jesus and how His coming changed the world.
Why Did He Come?
Jesus’ first coming is a precursor to His second coming. This devotional addresses the purposes of Jesus in his first coming and contrasts them to the purposes of His future return.
How Do I Respond?
Interwoven in the daily readings are stories of key characters in the Christmas story. By sharing their journeys, I hope to illuminate how their choices and responses to God worked out for their good and His glory. Through the questions that follow the reading, I hope to direct you to reflect on your own decisions in following Jesus.
