1. For the stressed-out Christian: The One True Light

For most of us, the weeks before Christmas are at best busy, and at worst incredibly stressful. And how much more so when we don’t take time out to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus! These 24 daily readings for Advent by Tim Chester are designed to help us slow down and take stock as Christmas approaches: “We’ll never enjoy Christmas properly unless we understand who it is who was born in Bethlehem that night. Indeed, we won’t enjoy life to the full until we see God in a manger.” (Read day one here).

2. For the not-yet-Christian: A Very Different Christmas

A humorous introduction to Christianity by Rico Tice and Nate Morgan Locke which invites readers to look at the presents under God’s tree. Designed to give as a gift to friends, family members and neighbours—you could wrap one up with some chocolates or homemade baking…

3. For the parents: Bake Through The Bible at Christmas

Lots of people will be taking to their kitchens to bake this Christmas—why not use it as an opportunity to teach children about the birth of Jesus? With 12 recipes and accompanying Bible stories, Bake Through The Bible At Christmas how to make Christmas baking about Christ!
