A special gift edition of the bestselling book for Advent that reveals the wisdom and wonder of animals in the natural world

In twenty-five portraits depicting how wild animals of the northern hemisphere ingeniously adapt when darkness and cold descend, we see and hear as if for the first time the ancient wisdom of Advent: The dark is not an end but the way a new beginning comes. Short, daily reflections capture in vivid detail the intricate and astonishing ways that familiar animals, from the honeybee to the porcupine, prepare for winter. Each day's reading is paired with a charming original woodcut illustration. Anyone who feels tired of the consumer hype of "the holiday season" will be refreshed and awakened to the eternal truth the natural world reveals.

This special gift edition:

  • Includes a new introduction, with suggestions for how the book can be used during Advent

  • Features inspirational thoughts from men and women through the ages - scientists, poets, and philosophers - who have found God through the beauty of creation

  • Includes an Afterword, bringing readers up to date on what has happened since All Creation Waits was first published

  • Invites quiet reflection during an often-chaotic holiday season

  • Prompts meaningful conversations between children and adults, church groups, book clubs, creation care classes, and much more

  • Written with quiet passion and backed by extensive research, All Creation Waits has captured the minds and hearts of thousands of readers of all ages, from children to adults. Gayle Boss invites us to realize that God can be known in all creatures, and that paying attention to these creatures makes us more fully human, more fully ourselves.

    "The practice of Advent has always been about helping us to grasp the mystery of a new beginning out of what looks like death. Other-than-human creatures--sprung, like us, from the Source of Life--manifest this mystery without question or doubt. The more I'm with animals and the more I learn about them, the more I know they can be more than our companions on this planet. They can be our guides. They can be to us 'a book about God...a word of God, ' the God who comes, even in the darkest season, to bring us a new beginning." --from All Creation Waits

    New York Times Bestseller

    Jinger Vuolo, the sixth child in the famous Duggar family of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting and Counting On, recounts how she began to question the unhealthy ideology of her youth and learned to embrace true freedom in Christ.

    When Jinger Duggar Vuolo was growing up, she was convinced that obeying the rules was the key to success and God's favor. She zealously promoted the Basic Life Principles of Bill Gothard,

  • fastidiously obeying the modesty guidelines (no shorts or jeans, only dresses),
  • eagerly submitting to the umbrella of authority (any disobedience of parents would place her outside God's protection),
  • promoting the relationship standard of courtship, and
  • avoiding any music with a worldly beat, among others.
  • Jinger, along with three of her sisters, wrote a New York Times bestseller about their religious convictions. She believed this level of commitment would guarantee God's blessing, even though in private she felt constant fear that she wasn't measuring up to the high standards demanded of her.

    In Becoming Free Indeed, Jinger shares how in her early twenties, a new family member--a brother-in-law who didn't grow up in the same tight-knit conservative circle as Jinger--caused her to examine her beliefs. He was committed to the Bible, but he didn't believe many of the things Jinger had always assumed were true. His influence, along with the help of a pastor named Jeremy Vuolo, caused Jinger to see that her life was built on rules, not God's Word.

    Jinger committed to studying the Bible--truly understanding it--for the first time. What resulted was an earth-shaking realization: much of what she'd always believed about God, obedience to His Word, and personal holiness wasn't in-line with what the Bible teaches.

    Now with a renewed faith of personal conviction, Becoming Free Indeed shares what it was like living under the tenants of Bill Gothard, the Biblical truth that changed her perspective, and how she disentangled her faith with her belief in Jesus intact.

    From the best-selling female gospel artist of all time CeCe Winans comes a heartfelt guide full of spirit, music, and faith. CeCe's first book in over 10 years, Believe for It explores what it means to pass along wisdom and faith to generations to come.


    Believe for It: Passing on Faith to the Next Generation beautifully recounts the pivotal experiences in CeCe's life that have shaped her faith. From her childhood in Detroit and the miracle of motherhood to her award-winning music career, CeCe brings readers along for a story full of heart, passion, and wisdom acquired from her walk with God.


    The Grammy award-winning artist shares stories of her life and career and lessons she's learned along the way, including:


  • Growing up in a musical family with 9 siblings
  • Starting a church with her husband
  • Planting faith through the Word of God
  • Pushing through obstacles that prevent faith from being passed down
  • Fostering emotional health--mind, body, and spirit--in order to pour into others
  • What it means to be engaged in a community of faith
  • How to nurture the faith of younger generations

  • Inspired by Generations--her popular show and conference--CeCe includes thoughtful questions at the end of each chapter to help readers foster their own intergenerational conversations.


    Full of heartfelt and profound teachings, Believe for It offers readers a glimpse into the life of legendary gospel singer CeCe Winans as well as an opportunity to grow in their own faith and wisdom as they pursue a closer relationship with the Lord.

    Praise for Believe for It:


    "CeCe Winans and her family are treasured friends in ministry with me, my children, and she was especially a great friend over the years with my deceased wife, Lois Evans. The Kingdom work I have witnessed them leading and being a part of has spanned decades in multiple generations. That is the heart and biblical wisdom of what CeCe shares in Believe for It. My prayer is that this book helps people see what God can do through intentionality in family, church community, and fervent prayer."


    --Dr. Tony Evans, President, The Urban Alternative, Senior Pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship


    "My friend CeCe Winans is a gifted and beloved Gospel recording artist, and she has written a new book that is refreshing and needed today. In a culture that is heavy-laden with failed marriages and broken homes, CeCe writes about the hope that Jesus Christ brings into family life when parents and children honor the Lord through obedience to His Word. Her own story will inspire and capture anew what happens when Christ is put at the center of our hearts and homes. No matter what has happened in life, it is never too late to 'Believe for It.'"


    --Franklin Graham, President and CEO, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Samaritan's Purse


    "I believe in the power of what God can do through family. What my friend CeCe Winans has done in 'Believe for It' shows how God uses generations to pass down faith."


    --Bishop T. D. Jakes, New York Times bestselling author

    Winner of the 2019 Christianity Today Book Award in the Christian Living & Discipleship Category

    "This book is going to shake us all up in the most wonderfully destabilizing way." --Ray Ortlund, Lead Pastor, Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee

    What did God use to draw a radical, committed unbeliever to himself? Did God take her to an evangelistic rally? Or, since she had her doctorate in literature, did he use something in print? No, God used an invitation to dinner in a modest home, from a humble couple who lived out the gospel daily, simply, and authentically.

    With this story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same "radical, ordinary hospitality" to bring the gospel to our lost friends and neighbors. Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own, but as God's tools for the furtherance of his kingdom as we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act differently from us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives--helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.
