Announcing Advent 2016: Christ Was Born For This

Christmas is coming. Although the first signs of fall have only begun here in Tennessee, our office has been filled with Bing Crosby songs and Woodland Spruce candles for what seems like months now. As we’ve prayed and prepared for Advent in the summer heat, it’s become clear that God isn’t standing on the other side of the holiday season waiting for our Christmas cheer and bolder faith. No, God is near, and Christ was born for this. 

On this warm September day, it is our privilege to introduce you to the 2016 He Reads Truth Advent study:

“Christ Was Born For This”

Beginning Sunday, 11/27, we’ll spend the Advent season exploring the Old Testament roles of prophet, priest and king, and the ways in which Christ came to perfectly fill each of them, as well as a week in Luke’s narrative of Christ’s birth.

The online study will be accompanied by our favorite legacy book of the year. Inside, you’ll find weekly introductions, daily Scripture, journaling space, Scripture mini-cards, and Christmas hymns. Now thru 10/2, get a FREE He Reads Truth Steadfast Pen when you preorder the 2016 Advent book. Books are now available for preorder at Preorders will begin shipping November 10. 


And, we’re excited to share some other big news: This year, we’re bringing Christmas joy to kids from 1 to 92 with the release of our first ever Kids Read Truth product:

Kids Read Truth | Advent Table Cards

Spark thought and conversation each day of the Advent season with inviting illustrations, engaging questions, and selections from the same daily readings as Mom and Dad.

Our hope is that Kids Read Truth Advent Cards will be a blessing to your family for years to come. Designed to engage kids of all ages, each card offers 1 key verse from the SRT/HRT daily reading, plus questions for three different age groups:


For ages 2-5: a one-word answer
For ages 5-11: a one-sentence answer
For ages 12 and up: a discussion question to spark thoughtful conversation

Need some help with the answers? Suggested responses are printed on the answer cards.

This set of 29 sturdy, satin-finished cards was specifically created to complement the “Advent: Christ Was Born for This” She Reads Truth & He Reads Truth reading plan, but they can easily be used apart from the grownup plans, and for many Christmases to come.

As always, there’s a She Reads Truth Advent book available as well. If you’ll be reading Truth together as a family this Advent season, we’ve made that easy with family bundles at a great discount. ($8 off for the She + He Bundle and $20 off for the Family Bundle)

We’re looking forward to reading Truth with you in the coming months.

Christ was born for this.

Read On,

The HRT Team
