Overview

Do you long for a more honest, imaginative, and Scripture-rich companion for the Advent season? A devotional willing to acknowledge the darkness of exile and the brokenness you see around and within, so you might rejoice more fully in the arrival of Jesus, the Light of the World?

In Advent for Exiles songwriter and storyteller Caroline Cobb weaves together Scripture readings, song lyrics, poetic prose, biblical imagery, and responsive exercises to help you:

  • break away from the hurried holiday pace, and daily stoke your anticipation for Jesus’s coming
  • engage both your mind and your imagination in the truth of God’s Word
  • walk in the shoes of the Old Testament exiles, linking arms with them as they ache for the Messiah
  • travel the Advent road from darkness to daybreak, exile to homecoming, and wilderness to a flourishing garden
  • explore how the full story of Scripture—from creation to Christ’s return—informs and expands your delight at Christmas

As the darkness of a long night sharpens our longing for the sunrise, this book of daily readings for the month of December will whet your appetite for the promised Messiah and amplify your joy at His arrival.

Come slow your pace, engage your imagination, and feast on the rich and relevant biblical theme of exile: His light shining in our darkness, His seed sprouting green in our wilderness. Allow yourself to experience the ache of Advent, so you might rejoice all the more at the beauty of Christ’s coming!
