New Work: Wonders of His Love


Slagle Design is honored to work New Growth Press to illustrate “Wonders of His Love,”
A family Advent book by Champ Thornton


Advent is the perfect time for families to gather together and celebrate the birth of Jesus. Using pictures of Jesus from Isaiah’s prophecies—the Light, the Branch, the Shepherd, and the Savior—brings to life the true meaning of Christmas.  

Hundreds of years before Jesus was born, God spoke to his people through the prophet Isaiah, promising them a Savior. To communicate God’s message, Isaiah used striking, stunning, and surprising imagery—the “wonders” of his love! Isaiah pointed God’s people to the future, when one day, through his birth, death, and resurrection, Jesus would deliver his people from sin and sorrow forever.    

Perfect for busy families with younger children, each week of Advent focuses on one of Isaiah’s images and has readings related to the week’s theme—Jesus the Light; Jesus the Branch; Jesus the Shepherd; Jesus the Savior—and, on Christmas Day, Jesus the Bread. Each week also includes fun stories, discussion questions, crafts, recipes, games, and suggestions for family service projects. 

Written by Champ Thornton and illustrated by Jeremy Slagle, this four-week devotional will draw families closer to Jesus and to each other.


“Embark on this Advent treasure hunt and you’ll discover Jesus in Isaiah! With daily Bible reading, lively illustrations, and loads of fun activities, Champ Thornton makes the gems of Scripture precious for your entire family. Get ready to strike gold in Wonders of His Love.”

- Barbra Reaoch

“From vivid illustrations to compelling prose, your children will be drawn to the manger, drawn to the hillsides where the shepherds first heard the news, drawn to the night that changed the world. As you slow down and plan your Christmas, make Wonders of His Love a part of your family worship this year.”

-Daniel Darling

“One of my favorite seasons is Advent. As a family, we always try to pause and meditate on Christ’s coming to us. I love to look with them at the Old Testament promises and see how Jesus completes them. Champ Thornton’s new book does exactly that through the book of Isaiah. It is simple, profound, creative, and beautifully put together. I now know the first book I will pick up this Advent season to walk through with my kids.”
