I bought this book on sale for several people, and I didn't know exactly what to expect. When I received it, I started reading and couldn't stop. I got to the point of tears (good ones) several times! So I am keeping one for myself and ordering an extra. This is just a wonderful book about the true meaning of Christmas - the salvation, power, and love of God for mankind. Each short story or reflection is true as well as touching, and the illustrations are warm and inviting. I am giving this book as a gift to several friends who have been Christians for a long time, and also to a friend who is a new Christian. It will be meaningful for all of them, so it really is a great gift. I look forward to pulling this book out each Christmas and enjoying the stories over and over again.

I noticed that someone else considered this book a great Christmas gift and I agree. The writing is beautiful and peaceful. It celebrates the joy of Christmas from the honest to goodness focus of Christmas which is Christ. The printing of the book is graceful and the messages calming. The pictures are exquisite and the book is just the right size. There is just enough to bring joy in the reading but not so much that you become bored with it. The authors are all familiar to most people acquainted with Christian authors and although I know I have read some of these offerings in other books before, they seem brand new in this lovely format. I am very pleased with my purchase and in fact, I have already wrapped it up and sent it winging its way to a beloved family member so that she can also enjoy the words to usher in the holiday season which is just around the corner.

This book is so wonderful that I have given it as a gift to several friends who also treasure it. The writings are the very best of Swindoll, Lucado and Colson and should be read many times.

Very well compiled from notable authors. Rec'd this as a gift. Have purchased 2 copies since for son and sister. It affirms faith in Jesus as well as introduces non-believers to Him.

This book is absolutely wonderful!!! The Christian authors write very inspirational/encouraging ideas (based on Scriptures) that are very thought provoking!!! These inspirations/encouragements are taken from some their other books. This is the best I can write in regards to explaining this book. You'll have to buy the book to understand what I mean to say. I've been purchasing copies of this book to give to other believers. You'll be glad that you purchase this book, and you might want to buy copies to give to other people. Lastly, I think that this book would be very helpful in ministering to young believers.

Not a "New Age" perspective at all, Max Lucado and Chuck Colson have done an exciting job of collecting writings on the western world's biggest holiday. From a Christian, Evangelical, Biblical viewpoint you will have the information needed to get away from the commercialism and back to what was intended when the angels told the shepherds outside Bethlehem "Peace on earth, good will to men."

This review is on the kindle edition
This is an excellent book with amazing quotes from 4 different authors. I give it 5 stars for content. It was uplifting and encouraging.
BUT...the kindle edition is very poorly edited. Many errors that make it difficult to read at various places. Too bad...the book definitely deserved better than this. I truly resent having paid for a kindle book that was frustrating to read and didn't do justice to the content of the book. My $1.99 would have been better spent if I had purchased the hardcover new from a private seller.
