6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Patty Inglish on January 17, 2008
Format: Paperback
When I received this book, I was impressed by the balanced montage on the front cover, one that encompasses pictures of all four central characters of the text. There are whimsical pictures of Santa with his pack and of a tooth carried off by a phantom Tinkerbelle-ian entity, a rabbit, and a headshot of Jesus asking the reader with his expression to set aside the arguments against him, for these alternatives are illogical.

Logic, in fact, is the point of contact between author and reader, a pathway to the precepts of Jesus and a path adorned with good humor and an uplifting Spirit. This is not a demoralizing or brow beating scriptural tract that alienates a reader. It is not frightening or overly emotional. It is fun. The text follows a logical progression of belief and disillusionment in the legends of Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, and Tooth Fairy; and illustrates that the story of Jesus Christ does not suffer the some pitfalls, loopholes, or lies as the three cultural myths.

Pastor Kenneth Hagin wrote a magazine article in the mid-1980s that answered questions for Christians and non-believers alike about whether it is morally permissible for children to believe in Santa Claus, to be allowed to find out that there is none, and then to be asked to believe in God.

His response came from a practical and logical stance. In his article, the pastor stated that children would likely not believe in Jesus, whom they cannot see, if they do not have some precedent to base that faith upon, in this case, Santa. Pastor Hagin advised to let children believe and then to explain that the man, Santa Claus, is a representation of the spirit of Christmas.

Format: Paperback
This is a book with a clever premise: He presents the traditional story of the three mythical figures, followed by a section, "Now Let's Think About This Logically," and "Now Everyone Has Their Own Personal Story as to When They Found Out that (Santa, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy) Doesn't Exist." His ultimate purpose, of course---after showing the irrationality of the Santa, Easter Bunny, and Tooth Fairy stories---is to contrast these with the (obviously much sounder) basis of Jesus.

He explains, "This book is a simple way to introduce the idea that Jesus really was who He said He was. This is a very simple back-doored seekers approach to Christian Apologetics... Most non-believers do not like to read religious stuff; they do however like easy to read comical things that they can relate to." (Pg. 57)

Here are some quotations from this 58-page (including a number of cartoons) 2007 booklet:

"Word of mouth was the CNN and Fox News of the times. So as none of us today has ever personally met Napoleon, George Washington or Abraham Lincoln we have the written eyewitness accounts, history, and artists' renderings of all of these individuals. So, logically, if you believe in word of mouth, history, and art the answer is YES, that Jesus existed." (Pg. 35)
"Could you imagine someone being able to heal every AIDS victim, or any type of Cancer in anyone, no matter how severe it was? Come to think of it, no one every said that Jesus was not capable of healing anyone. Even the Religious leaders who were jealous of Jesus never tried to deny that Jesus could heal people... they however got upset on the days he chose to heal people. He was not supposed to 'heal' on the Sabbath, but any other day was fine! How ironic was that?

True or false:

1. Santa really lives at the North pole and drives a sled pulled by nine reindeer.
2. The Easter bunny hides all the eggs and has a basket factory.
3. The Tooth Fairy sells children's teeth on the black market.
4. Jesus really raised from the dead.

In SANTA CLAUS, THE EASTER BUNNY, THE TOOTH FAIRY AND JESUS, Mr. Parry takes a look at each individual legend, telling the basic, simple version of their stories, and then taking a look at each of them logically.

This short book is very easy to read in one setting. There is a sarcastic edge in the taking a look at them logically section, which is kind of cute. The author maintains that SANTA CLAUS, THE EASTER BUNNY, THE TOOTH FAIRY AND JESUS is written for those who want to put the four in the same box--a mythical creatures that really don't exist, to prove that out of the four, Jesus is real. I'm not really sure how it would work to convince someone who doesn't believe, but to me it seems quite logically thought out and well-written. If you know someone who believes Jesus is a myth and is waiting for you to wake up and smell the coffee, maybe this would be a good book to slip in their to-be-read pile. It's cover is cute and attention grabbing, there are several humorous cartoons included, and it's gripping. 58 pages.

When I first ordered this I was thinking one thing.. which I will not share at this point. After reading it,I just sat there for about, I don't even know how long, just thinking. If Jesus really did all that stuff , I am going to have to do some more thinking I guess. Thanks, I did enjoy it.
