Light of the World DVD

A Beginner's Guide to Advent
$34.99
($39.99)

Dive deep into the history of the birth of Christ.

Advent is not only the perfect time to read the story of the birth of Jesus; it’s also a great time to dive deeper into the biblical texts that surround the event. In Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine shows how the Gospel narratives connect to the Old Testament; highlights the role of women in first-century Jewish culture; and emphasizes the importance of Mary’s visitation, the census, the stable, the star of Bethlehem, and the flight to Egypt. A rich and challenging learning experience for the individual reader, the book also makes a wonderful, four-week Advent group study with the additional Leader Guide and DVD.

The four-session DVD features Amy-Jill Levine guiding participants through the study. The video sessions are approximately 8–10 minutes in length and, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal four-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned.
