Christmas Journeys

Advent Study

Writer Justin Tull invites you into two worlds: the biblical world of the nativity, rich with its diverse supporting cast and the modern world packed with busy pilgrims in search of Christmas joy. This book offers the possibility of two different studies or a combination of both. The ancient story invites you to meet a peasant girl named Mary, a common carpenter named Joseph, some scruffy shepherds and the so-called wise men. The modern story features the journeys of an unlikely trio: Linda, who has every reason to be happy, but feels a nagging emptiness; Stuart, a Viet-Nam vet, who wrestles mightily with poverty and guilt; and Vivian, whose battle with grief has left her weary and alone. Can these three find new joy in the warm embrace of friendship and in the rebirth of faith and hope? Their journeys tell the story.

Why God Why?

Why God, Why? Seminar

Dr. Tull's book was selected to be a part of the Protestant Pulpit Exchange Series by Abingdon Press. This series was created to help teach ministers how to preach on various themes. Why God Why? addresses the issue of human tragedy and the age-old question of why a loving God allows suffering to visit God's children. Tull's book is the Christian equivalent of Kushner's book When Bad Things Happen to Good People. It also addresses the same issues as those explored in William Young's The Shack. Dr. Tull encourages one to examine God's eternal presence in times of blessed joy as well as during sorrow and suffering, and offers scripture and anecdotes to illustrate God's comfort and grace during all situations of life.
