About the Author
Hannah Anderson is an author and Bible teacher who lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with her husband, Nathan, and three children. Her books include All That's Good: Recovering the Lost Art of Discernment and Turning of Days: Lessons from Nature, Season, and Spirit. She also cohosts the Persuasion podcast, which addresses cultural, theological, and more mundane issues from a Christian perspective. Hannah's goal is to encourage believers to think deeply and broadly about how the gospel transforms every area of life.

Nathan Anderson is an illustrator and ordained minister who holds master's degrees in theology and leadership. A native of southwest Virginia, he is most at home walking in the woods, working in his garden, or birding with the Roanoke Valley Bird Club. You can find more of his work on Instagram at @nathan_d_anderson.
"This is a beautiful book in every sense: poetically written, richly illustrated, and thoughtfully conceived. Weaving together the physical meaning of creation with the spiritual meaning of Christmas, Hannah and Nathan Anderson reveal the ways in which Advent is enacted all around us, in pine trees and snowfall, holly and sap. Joy to the world, indeed!"
-Andrew Wilson, author and teaching pastor at King's Church London

"In the same way that creation immerses us in rhythms of work and rest, silence and sound, living and dying, so this beautifully written and lovingly illustrated book invites us into the rhythms of Advent in order to discover the good news of the Creator God who takes on flesh in order to restore all flesh, so that we might be agents of renewal in a world full of fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains that summons us to the fulsome praise of the God who is With Us. This book is Isaac Watts meets Annie Dillard--and one that you will love reading year after year."
-David and Phaedra Taylor (David is Associate Professor of Theology and Culture, Fuller Theological Seminary, and author of Open and Unafraid: The Psalms as a Guide to Life; Phaedra is a visual artist and gardener)
