The First Songs of Christmas Review

Book Review: 

The First Songs of Christmas: Meditations of Luke 1 and 2 is a delightful 31-day advent devotional book by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. It's based on the scriptural songs found in the Christmas story from Luke 1 and 2 with an emphasis on biblical reflections of Elizabeth, Mary, Zechariah, Simeon, and the angels.

This month-long devotional includes one for each day of December. Each devotional includes a scripture verse, devotional text, prayer, scripture references to keep reading, and thoughtful response. It's a nice addition to my daily personal devotionals, yet it also seems readable with small groups and friends, especially if focusing on one song per week.

This devotional book is geared to read during the Christmas holidays, yet it's still memorable to read throughout the year. With the lovely cover and encouraging content, I think this book is a great gift idea.

I received this book from Moody, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
