About the Book

Star of Wonder Title: Star of Wonder 
Author: Angela Hunt 
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers 
Release Date: September 26, 2023 
Genre: Advent Devotional 

Come, Rediscover the Wonder and Reality of the Very First Christmas 

We all love the Christmas season, but have we buried the truth of the day? 

Bestselling author Angela Hunt weaves together visceral storytelling with overlooked biblical historical truths to help you rediscover the places, people, prophecies, and purpose of Christmas. Each of the engaging twenty-five devotions includes scriptural insights, historical facts, and personal application, which--along with weekly family activities--will have everyone saying, "I didn't know that!" as the Nativity comes to life anew. 

Explore Bethlehem and Nazareth. Walk with Mary, Joseph, and others. Be amazed by the words of the prophets of old. And be warmed by God's great purpose that culminated in the birth of the Messiah. 

Star of Wonder is perfect as an individual Advent devotional or for family and small group study. You will see Christmas with new eyes, create lasting holiday memories, and shine light on the wonder of that night so long ago. 

"This Advent devotional is written with passion, showing patterns and prophecies that filled me with renewed hope and wonder."--FRANCINE RIVERS, bestselling author of The Lady's Mine and Redeeming Love  

My thoughts: I love this unique devotional! I have enjoyed many of Angela Elwell Hunt's stories over the year, so I was thrilled to read this devotional by her. I love how it dives into the prophecies and customs of Biblical times. I have often wondered how different the first Christmas looked in comparison to what we portray today, and this book did a wonderful job of filling in that picture. I love that there are family activities sprinkled in, giving one a chance to include the whole family in this devotional. I look forward to picking this book up again for the holidays!
I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
