The Women of Christmas Back Cover:

God Reached Down from Heaven with the Best Gift of All

A sacred season is about to unfold for three women whose hearts belong to God. Elizabeth is baron, yet her trust in God remains fertile. Mary is betrothed in marriage, yet she is willing to bear God’s Son. Anna is a widow full of years, yet she waits patiently, prayerfully for the Messiah to appear in the temple courts.

Following in their footsteps, you too can prepare for the Savior to enter your heart, your mind, and your life in a vibrant, new way this season. Best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs explores the biblical stories of Elizabeth, Mary and Anna, unwrapping each verse with tender care and introducing you afresh to The Women of Christmas.


Book Review: The Women of Christmas

What a delightful book. Liz Curtis Higgs did a great job showing the birth of Christ through the eyes of three women that God specifically chose to usher in the long awaited Messiah, His Son, Jesus. This book will fill you with hope, encouragement and faith. It will inspire you to continuing to believe that God is faithful to keep all His promises. The Women of Christmas also reminds us that following God and being part of His divine plan can come at a high price, but the reward of serving Him is always worth it. That love is always worth the price we pay and that we never lose when we place our faith in God and His plan. These women remind us that though life can be hard and it’s not always easy to do all God asks us to do, He promises to be with us each step of the way. God used these women to show us that despite the difficulties of life, we can walk with grace as we place our trust in Him. I believe you will really enjoy the quotes, from various women, that Liz sprinkled throughout The Women of Christmas. The quotes are a great addition to this wonderful book.

The Women of Christmas is for anyone that loves the birth of Christ or that is curious about His birth, if you’re unfamiliar with it. Liz Curtis Higgs takes us through the Scriptures and unpacks the treasure of the greatest story ever told. If you are like me, you never get tired of hearing about our Savior’s birth and life. Join Elizabeth, Mary and Anna as they share the challenges they faced, as well as the joy they experienced as God’s chosen women to welcome our Lord Jesus into this world.
