Light of
                the World

CoverLevineIn Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the story of the birth of Jesus.  Join her as she traces the Christmas narrative through the stories of Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, and the visit From the Magi.

There’s no one I’d rather have guide me through Advent and the first chapters of Matthew and Luke than Amy-Jill Levine.  With her characteristic insight, graciousness, humor, and deep respect for these biblical writings she makes the wonder-filled stories of John’s and Jesus’ births come alive.  The Gospels’ tidings of comfort and joy become sources of rich spiritual contemplation for anyone who reads this book.

 Matthew L. Skinner, Professor of New Testament, Luther Seminary
