Down To Earth by Mike Slaughter 

Holy Cross’ Recommended Advent Small Group Bible Study



A virgin birth. God’s son…a helpless baby. Fleeing certain death. Much like this year, nothing about the Christmas story is ordinary. Mike Slaughter says it’s enough to confound the mind and make the heart contrite. In his book, Down to Earth, Slaughter presents a four-week Advent study that opens up God’s Christmas surprise to us and examines how it changed everything. 

This study is a great compliment to our “God With Us” sermon series at Holy Cross Lutheran Church.
