The Angels of Christmas:

Hearing God's Voice in Advent

By Susan Robb 


The Angels of Christmas: Hearing God’s Voice in Advent, a four-week Advent study by Susan Robb, explores the four angelic visits surrounding the birth of Jesus with Zechariah, Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds. In this study, the reader will explore the visits and dive deep into the history of the angel Gabriel–and other angels–in the Old Testament. The Angels of Christmas uses these four angelic appearances to discuss God’s presence in history and our lives today. The messages of the angels hold meaning for listeners both then and now.

Components for the four-week study include a book, comprehensive Leader Guide, DVD/Video sessions featuring Susan Robb.

Praise for The Angels of Christmas

In her new work, The Angels of Christmas, writer Susan Robb leans into our curiosity and beautifully articulates the significant role the angelic messengers of God play in the stories of Advent. An incredible resource for young and old alike, The Angels of Christmas helps us rediscover how God communicates hope and meaning to earth-side humans – a fresh study for all generations. 

- Rachel Billups, pastor and author of Be Bold: Finding your Fierce

Susan Robb shares the Christmas story with attention to the angels and intersects those miraculous happenings of 2000 years ago with the experiences of people’s lives—their joys, sufferings, and hopes. What a beautiful way to hear and study the Nativity story and discover new perspectives.

- Bishop Michael McKee, North Texas Annual Conference, The United Methodist Church

The Angels of Christmas is an inspirational, practical look at the angelic messengers of the Advent/Christmas story. 

Written with Susan Robb’s trademark clarity and eloquence, with many stories and real-life applications, it is ideal for personal growth or small group study. Churches will find it helpful for all-church studies tied to sermons during Advent.
