The Women of Christmas by Liz Curtis Higgs has been a blessing to have read during the month of December. So much that I would most assuredly will pick this book up again next year to enjoy and study during the Advent Season. The author does a beautiful job at giving readers an eye opening fresh look at the story of Mary, Anna, and Elizabeth surrounding the triumphant arrival of our Saviour Christ Jesus.
I appreciated the bit of history and culture included focusing on the time that these three ladies were living. We can clearly see how boldly they were for their God pressing on despite the culture! I’ve always enjoy digging deeper into the era of which our Biblical brothers and sisters resided as it gives a more personal feel and understand as to what was going on. Much praise to the author for giving that insight on those ladies. She has given us so much to ponder!
I enjoyed that this book takes us verse-by-verse through the Christmas Story. There are eight chapters total. Suggestions are that you could start reading one chapter a week in early November. Or read two chapters each Sunday of Advent. Or immerse yourself in one chapter a week during the week leading up to Christmas Day. Whatever works best for you or your group!
I highly believe that any lady would be blessed, encouraged, and find a rich deeper meaning to the season after going through this study. I highly recommend this book!
