With the plethora of Advent devotional books released in recent years, it is becoming more challenging to find one that is just the right fit. For me, I’ve found that Unwrapping the Names of Jesus by Asheritah Ciuciu is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I became familiar with Asheritah as she followed me on Instagram and I returned the follow. When I saw that she had written a book designed for Advent, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy.
In Unwrapping the Names of Jesus, Asheritah begins by stating, “We spend much of the holiday season creating our own little winter wonderlands: cookies and cards, lights and decorations, carols and get-togethers. But what exactly are we doing to prepare spiritually? Most christians agree that Christmas is all about Jesus, yet few of our calendars would reflect that priority” (pg. 10).
From this point forward, Asheritah’s daily readings and weekly activities take readers through the various names of Jesus presented in Scripture and reminds them of who Jesus is and the importance of what He has done for those who trust in Him for salvation.
Each daily reading is Christ centered and Scripture saturated which to me, is much needed and so encouraging, especially during this busy season. I also appreciate that the book is beautifully designed and have enjoyed placing it on display with my other Christmas decor.
As I read through the book, I noticed that since the daily readings are all about Jesus, this devotional truly could be use apart from Advent if one were desiring to study what the Bible has to say about who Jesus is.

I highly recommend Unwrapping the Names of Jesus and look forward to reading it annually.
Unwrapping the Names of Jesus is available now at all major booksellers.
I received Unwrapping the Names of Jesus compliments of Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
