Daily Advent Devotions on Classic Christmas Carols

The Carols of Christmas Volume 1 Paperback Advent Devotion

The most beloved Christmas carols arranged in 28 daily devotions for the Advent season.

The Carols of Christmas is a heart-warming devotional inspired by some of the most beloved Christmas carols of all time. Inside, you’ll enjoy a fresh glimpse of some of the same joyful and nostalgic melodies you sing every year now set to personal reflections in this 28-day devotional journey.

The carols include “O Holy Night”, “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”, “O Little Town of Bethlehem”, and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.” You’ll also discover intriguing stories and thought-provoking details like who wrote the carol; what was going on in their life that perhaps inspired the hymn; and how has God used this hymn throughout time.

The book is divided into four weeks of daily devotions, perfect for celebrating Advent or Christmas. Each week you begin by reading the history of the carol, followed by six daily devotions that reflect on a verse from the hymn along with a Scripture reflection. Traditionally, Advent begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas, but the devotions are undated, allowing you to start at any time.

The Carols of Christmas includes:

  • 28 Daily Devotions
  • Inspiring stories behind each carol
  • Lyrics for each carol, including the original versions
  • Brief scriptural reflections
  • Large print format available for readers of all ages
  • Audio book available for those on the go

The Carols of Christmas is the ideal resource for personal reflection or as a tool to engage in family worship during the busy holiday season. It also makes for the perfect Christmas gift to friends, family, co-workers, and those who are homebound.

This Christmas, you can continue to enjoy the nostalgic songs that warm our hearts each year along with a better understanding of the carols and how they reflect our Savior’s birth.
