Editorial Reviews

Review

1. 'The Christmas Message' is an appealing, highly unusual and very creative anthology.  After an introduction about the Queen's public expression of faith, Geoff Waugh provides a selection of noteworthy passages about Christmas from the Queen's Christmas messages from 1952 to 2017.  He sets them into context by brief historical references, photos, and Christmas stamps.  Finally there is an epilogue of famous Christmas hymns and carols including those used in the Christmas Broadcasts. This book would be the perfect Christmas present. - Alison Sherrington (Author)

2  The strength of the Commonwealth of Nations is the application of Christ's teaching of peace and goodwill to all, a thread that follows through each of the 65 broadcasts of Her Majesty's Christmas Messages and is embodied in The Queen's own testament in these messages.

The core of the book is the excerpts from The Queen's messages. Geoff introduces each broadcast with a short commentary on the events of that year and highlights The Queen's words in the context of each year,accompanied with appropriate photographs and commemorative stamps.

The birth of Christ, now widely celebrated as Christmas throughout the world, is the background and basis for The Queen's speeches. A comprehensive appendix lists resources used in many broadcasts together with words of the more common carols. The appendix is a fitting conclusion to this new and innovative approach to the Christmas Story and its clear message of peace and goodwill to all. It is a rewarding experience to read it from cover to cover. - Don Hill (Consultant)

3. I haven't seen anyone else draw the events of the last 65 years together in this way before. Using the Queen's speeches not only ties in the unfolding events of our time but reveals a deep spiritual glue that provides a fascinating and intimate insight into the personal life of our Queen. A fascinating read. 5 Stars. - Rev Philip Waugh (Minister)

From the Author

Examples of quotes from The Queen's Christmas Broadcasts:

God sent into the world a unique person - neither a philosopher nor a general, important though they are, but a Saviour, with the power to forgive. Forgiveness lies at the heart of the Christian faith. (2011)

This is the time of year when we remember that God sent his only son 'to serve, not to be served'. He restored love and service to the centre of our lives in the person of Jesus Christ. (2012)

For Christians, as for all people of faith, reflection, meditation and prayer help us to renew ourselves in God's love, as we strive daily to become better people. The Christmas message shows us that this love is for everyone. There is no one beyond its reach. (2013)

For me, the life of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, whose birth we celebrate today, is an inspiration and an anchor in my life. (2014)

We remember the birth of Jesus Christ, whose only sanctuary was a stable in Bethlehem. He knew rejection, hardship and persecution. And, yet, it is Jesus Christ's generous love and example which has inspired me through good times and bad. (2017)
