Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Adam Hamilton’s classic, The Journey.
Since 2011, tens of thousands of churches and small groups have turned Adam Hamilton’s best-selling book on the birth of Christ into a classic that’s read each year.
In The Journey, Adam Hamilton travels from Nazareth to Bethlehem in a fascinating look at the birth of Jesus Christ. As he did with Jesus' crucifixion in 24 Hours That Changed the World, Hamilton once again approaches a world-changing event with thoughtfulness.
Using historical information, archaeological data, and a personal look at some of the stories surrounding the birth, the most amazing moment in history will become more real and heart-felt as you walk along this road.
