Tidings of Comfort & Joy

Remember Christ our Savior was born on Christmas Day.

The Christmas season easily overwhelms, and meaning can be lost in the busyness. In Tidings of Comfort & Joy, Mark M. Yarbrough reminds us why we celebrate. These twenty-five short devotions focus December on Jesus through a combination of Scripture reflections, winsome stories, advent applications, and guided prayers. This is a book that you and your family will turn to annually, as you prepare your heart for the wonder and meaning of Christmas.

Top Highlights

“As someone once said, the Son of God became the Son of Man, so that the sons and daughters of mankind could become the sons and daughters of God.” (Page 4)

“‘You are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins’” (Pages 9–10)

“My heart soars as much as anyone’s when tragedy is averted by commitment and courage. I’ve noticed such exploits seem to have five things in common: 1) a great plan, 2) the right people to execute the plan, 3) innovative methods, 4) perfect timing, and 5) flawless execution.” (Page ix)

“God intervenes by making promises to a man named Abram in these three powerful verses” (Page 8)

“God has blessed the world through Christ. The third promise is a person—Jesus” (Page 9)

Praise for Tiding of Comfort & Joy

This is a 5-star rated resource for Christmas! We laughed, learned and worshipped as we made our way through Mark Yarbrough’s new Christmas devotional, Tidings of Comfort and Joy. Both of us are all about putting Jesus back into Christmas and Mark has done a terrific job of helping individuals, couples and families truly exalt Christ. Get this book and go through it. It will become a “Go To” resource for Christmas both now and for the generations to come.

Christmas begs us to reflect on the first advent of Jesus. In Tidings of Comfort and Joy, Mark Yarbrough skillfully leads us on a devotional journey to do just that. Listen up people: ponder the King’s presence on the planet. Read this book. Engage God’s Word. Submit to the desires of King Jesus this Christmas. When you do, you will remember that God changed the world—and that He daily longs to change yours as well.

—Tony Evans, senior pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship; president, The Urban Alternative

Need to bust out of the bah humbug blues of Christmas? Then take a journey with my friend Mark Yarbrough as he leads you through the greatest story ever told. Tidings of Comfort and Joy provides what it says. Read it and marvel at the fact that God became one of us to reveal the father to all of us.

    A good devotional book for Advent - well at least the first 25 days of December ;-) Whilst I don’t agree with all the author has to say, I appreciated his illustrations and liked his approach - especially his use of both Old and New Testament.
