Marty Machowski's Promises Made Promises Kept shows families how the birth and life of Jesus fulfilled God's Old Testament promises of a Savior.

Start a new family tradition for the Christmas season by reading this "upside-down" book that includes fourteen Bible stories. Begin the week before Christmas with the first side, Promises Made which has seven stories that explore the Old Testament prophecies of the coming Messiah. On Christmas Day, flip the book over and continue by reading Promises Kept with seven more stories that vividly illustrate how Jesus's life, death, and resurrection and the beginning of the church fulfill God's promises.

Machowski weaves the promises and fulfillments together into one harmonized story that will deepen the family's faith in God's power and control over all of history and their lives too. Each story also includes questions for the family to discuss together.

  • This beautiful hardback book, illustrated by Phil Schorr, will become a treasured family favorite to be used every Christmas season.
  • Designed for families to read one story each dayfor the week leading up to and the week following Christmas.
  • Targeted to families with preschool and grade school children but can be used in family devotions with teens as well.

Tim Challies, Author of Seasons of Sorrow

“Marty Machowski has gifted families with a bite-sized Christmas devotional that beautifully connects the wonder of Jesus’s birth to all the glorious promises that he fulfills. It is a wonderful way to reflect on redemptive realities connecting Christ's birth to God’s fulfilled promises.”
Darby Strickland, CCEF faculty; author Something Scary Happened

Promises Made Promises Kept is beautifully illustrated, theologically rich, and saturated with Scripture. Marty masterfully and creatively walks us through the promises God made to his people throughout the Old Testament and then shows how Jesus is the fulfillment of each promise. I’ve always wanted to go back in time to join Jesus and his disciples on the road to Emmaus, and while nothing could fully embody that experience, Promises Made Promises Kept gives us a glimpse.”
Curtis W. Solomon, Executive Director of The Biblical Counseling Coalition; author
