"Christmas Before and After" is a series of devotional studies for Advent and beyond. The first section, written by Russell Board, uses the Advent season as a time for mental and spiritual preparation in the days leading up to Christmas. Board encourages readers to take this opportunity to thoughtfully consider the implications of Christ’s incarnation, both for their lives and for the world in general. The second section, written by Doug Beacham Jr., extends this reflection on Christ’s coming past Christmas day into the days leading up to Epiphany. With Christmas Before and After, you can meet the yearly challenge to remain focused on what’s really important as Board and Beacham guide you with scripture passages, biblical and church history, and personal application.
