    What I Like Advent Epiphany Different from other Advent devotionals I ve read in a way that really makes me think about this season and meditate A nice slow read through the portions of Scripture that retell the story Alternate styles and approaches between the days also help to ke...

    A beautiful journey through Advent and the 12 days of Christmas to Epiphany Scripture, song, poetry both ancient and new Wangerin s language gave me new perspective and insights into the nativity story.
