For our part, over the decades, we have done many things:
- We have read Christ in Christmas (very good book of essays by folks like Sproul, Boice, and Swindoll on different aspects of Christ's person).
- We have read Jotham's Journey and Tabitha's Travels (interesting, suspenseful, clever; keeps the kids' interest).
- I have led the family through a series of readings I select, which systematically go through the OT, narrowing down from "the Seed of the woman" (Genesis 3:15) to the tribe of Shem (Genesis 9) to Abram (Genesis 12), etc., until we end up pinpointing the Lord Jesus.
- We have read Ruth Bell Graham's One Wintry Night (good book, exquisite illustrations).
