The journey to Christmas begins in Rome.

On the Way to Bethlehem follows the long journey to Christmas. The story begins in Rome with a decree issued from the seat of worldly power for a census, setting into motion events leading to the birth of the Savior of the world in a town that represents the very opposite of worldly power, Bethlehem.

Author Rob Fuquay provides insight into the geographical and historical significance of Rome, Jerusalem, Nazareth, and Bethlehem, along with the important characters through whom the Christmas drama unfolds. You will be drawn into those places in a way that helps you experience the spiritual truths each location holds. The reflection we give in these places prepares the heart and soul to experience wonder, awe, mystery, and joy.

Chapters include:
Rome – A Place of Longing
Jerusalem – A Place of Waiting
Nazareth – A Place of Simplicity
Bethlehem – A Place of Humility

Components available to use this book in a small group study include a leader guide and video available on DVD.
