Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is your Christmas more “Santa” than “Savior”? For many, the Christmas season has become synonymous with long lines at the department store and shiny wrapping paper. And in addition to presents under the tree and egg nog, there’s something about a Savior born in a manger, right? Seeking the Christmas Lamb is a tool for the family who wishes to slow down and find the real reason to celebrate the holidays. Borrowing from her own quest for a meaningful celebration of Advent, author Tamara J. Buchan creates a journey through the twenty-eight days leading to Christmas and the twelve days of Epiphany. Rich but simple daily readings trace God’s plan for humanity, from Genesis to Revelation, pivoting on the sacrificial Advent of His Son. Through these pages, you and your family can passionately pursue an intimate understanding of the season’s significance. Discover how the Christmas season can help you find a new appreciation for Christ’s Advent in your own life!

Synopsis:

“I believe it is possible to live in the rubble of this warring world, to have a life full of pain and disappointment, and still rejoice.” -Joyce Sackett Fifteen years ago, Joyce Sackett opened her daughter's bedroom door and saw the unthinkable: the girl had committed suicide. How does a mother-or anyone-cope with such a devastating loss? Is it really possible to sweep up the shattered pieces of a grieving heart and find healing again? Goodbye Jeanine is a faith journey--from the despair of a family member's suicide back to hope and joy. This poignant and honest account reveals how Sackett learned to survive both physically and emotionally with the mixed emotions of loss, anger, guilt, fear, and shame--and how you can too. Despite tragic circumstances, God is near to the brokenhearted, bringing comfort and joy from grief and pain.
