Description

Fun and frustration; peace and panic; excitement and exhaustion; spending and spending and spending. Because of the rush we find it hard to stop and think what Christmas is really all about. This accessible little paperback book explains the background to our popular Christmas traditions - including Santa Claus, Christmas cards, Christmas trees, Christmas carols and turkey - and retells the story of the first Christmas, from the start of Mary's pregnancy through to the visits by the three wise men. The author also examines the concept of 'peace' in a world in which conflict and chaos seem to reign. He looks at why Jesus was born and what he did, believed and taught while he was on earth. The final chapter of the book includes a prayer which can be used by those wanting to receive Jesus into their hearts this Christmas.show more
