The Story of Advent Throughout Scripture: A Transcendent Solution for a Broken World

Season 1
November 29, 2022

For the second episode of our special Advent series, Graham Dennis talks with Veritas Principal Dan Spanjer, author of the recently-released devotional book Advent Is the Story: Seeing the Nativity Throughout Scripture. Listen in as Graham and Dan discuss how, from Genesis to Revelation, God's redemptive plan of Christ's coming to earth is revealed. For those of us feeling the drudgery of this broken and fallen world, this discussion points to Christ's advent - both his incarnation and birth and his glorious second coming - as the ultimate joyful solution.  Their talk will awaken your wonder and excitement for the transcendent truth, beauty, and goodness of God this season, and help your family glimpse his glory through the traditions and symbols of Advent and Christmas.
