An illustrated Advent devotional for adults and families
In Born: Uncovering the Beauty of the Nativity, CW Staebel uncovers the cultural, historical, and biblical context of this familiar story from the first whispers of redemption in the Garden of Eden. Tracing thematic threads and poignant parallels through the stories, lineages, and prophecies that preceded Christ’s birth, Born sparks curiosity, instills wonder, and builds anticipation for the long-awaited Savior King.
With 24 short, daily devotions for the month of December accompanied by suggested Scripture readings, this illustrated Advent devotional draws out the layers of depth and meaning that God wove into the Christmas story from the beginning. Each devotion is paired with original illustrations that capture the reality of the circumstances and the humanity of their characters in a whimsical yet realistic way.
Unwrapping the story’s dynamic elements one day at a time, Staebel leaves us with a priceless gift: eyes to see an ancient story with a fresh perspective as we prepare our hearts to celebrate the baby whose birth, life, and death changed everything.
