From the publisher:
God Reached Down from Heaven with the Best Gift of All
A sacred season is about to unfold for three women whose hearts belong to God.
Elizabeth is barren, yet her trust in God remains fertile. Mary is betrothed in marriage, yet she is willing to bear God’s Son. Anna is a widow full of years, yet she waits patiently, prayerfully for the Messiah to appear in the temple courts.
Following in their footsteps, you too can prepare for the Savior to enter your heart, your mind, and your life in a vibrant, new way. Best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs explores the biblical stories of Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna, unwrapping each verse with tender care and introducing you afresh to The Women of Christmas.
Once again Liz Curtis Higgs has developed an amazing Bible study for women. Ms. Higgs takes us through the “Women of Christmas”, Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna. How appropriate for this study that it is the season of our Christ’s birth.
Throughout the book are thoughts from women that stop and make you think about what you’ve read and about what God has done in our lives.
This is a great study, either on your own or in a group setting. There is a study guide in the back of the book, where you are given a reading and then have a set of questions to answer. I would love to see and will use this in a group setting to see other women’s thoughts on the study.
