Review

"The author also goes into the theological reasons of why we should celebrate Christmas, even as Christians...especially as Christians." -MikeM

From the Author

Christmas is one of the greatest times of the year, full of joy, expectation, and generosity. Yet for numerous reasons, some Christians tell others we should not celebrate Christmas. This book looks at some of the reasons they give, and shows that when the symbolism of Christmas is truly understood, celebrating Christmas is a great way to express the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This e-book is an easy read and won't take you too long to get through (it took me 1 cup of coffee and 3 small gingerbread cookies).

Some illustrations or pictures might have been nice, but it provided a very good summary of the history of Christmas: its beginnings, changes, and our cultural changes to it. I've not heard most of this information and it definitely "opened my eyes". The author also goes into the theological reasons of why we should celebrate Christmas, even as Christians...especially as Christians.

The Author's writing style is direct and factual, obviously researched, and with intent. He intentionally makes seemingly controversial statements to get your attention, and to great effect. (full disclosure: the Author is my brother)

I've always celebrated Christmas, and will continue to do so. But this book gave me some new insight and meaning into this (formerly) pagan holiday. Thanks, Jeremy, for a well written and succinct book on the Christmas holiday!

Very informative book dealing with the roots of our modern Christmas traditions. The Biblical teaching on redemption is excellent! Highly recommended.

Or rather transformations. As mentioned in other reviews, I have always celebrated Christmas and didn't have any problem with the celebrations originating as pagan. Lots of the hymns were sung to 'drinking' songs. I did have (and still do) have some difficulty with santa. (in our home we have been calling him "that whiskery buzzard" in fun.)

Jeremy has written a good counterpoint to those who think we should not celebrate Christmas and other holidays because elements of those holidays are borrowed from/have roots in "pagan" religions and cultures. When Jeremy and his family celebrate Christmas and when my family and I celebrate Christmas, we're remembering Jesus and his command to love God first, then neighbor. As Jeremy so aptly points out, remembering Jesus and his teaching is not just one day per year thing, but an everyday thing. Sure, give the poor a Christmas box, but also remember them all year. Give them our coat when they are cold, a bottle of water when they are thirsty. Every day share Jesus, and if we must, use words. Celebrate the love God has shown us by showing that love to our neighbors.
