Book Review: The Women of Christmas

19 Nov

425416God 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 barren, 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. 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.

12930_higgs_liz_curtisLiz Curtis Higgs has been telling tales since she attempted her first novel – handwritten in a marble notebook – at the tender age of ten. Successful careers in broadcasting, public speaking, nonfiction writing, and children’s books honed Liz’s storytelling talents, bringing her back to her first love – writing fiction – at the turn of the 21st century.

A gifted speaker, Liz Curtis Higgs has presented more than 1,500 inspirational programs for audiences in all 50 United States as well as Germany, England, Canada, Ecuador, France, and Scotland. In 1995, Liz received the highest award in professional speaking, the “Council of Peers Award for Excellence,” becoming one of only forty women in the world named to the CPAE-Speaker Hall of Fame by the National Speakers Association.

On the personal side, Liz is married to Bill Higgs, Ph.D., who serves as Director of Operations for her speaking and writing office. Liz and Bill share their 19th-century farmhouse in Kentucky with their two teenagers, Matt and Lilly, and too many cats. For more about Liz, visit her Web site:

My Impressions:

Looking for a way to inject a new spirit into the Christmas season? Consider adding The Women of Christmas by Liz Curtis Higgs to your reading list this year. Liz returns with her unique and insightful voice in bringing the story of Christ’s birth to light through thorough Biblical research and a writing style that touches a woman’s heart. The story of the wonder of the Messiah’s birth is told through the eyes of three women and their touch from God. Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna all lived God’s promise. Their experiences bring a personal reality to the wonderful miracle of Christmas.

I used The Women of Christmas as a daily devotional, reading a chapter a day. There is a study guide in the back of the book to enhance your quiet time and bring more depth to your study. Good for personal study, this book is also ideal for a small group study – a great way to welcome the Christmas season with friends, co-workers, or neighbors.


Great For Group Study.
