Rather than being a full length book, this is more like a message or a sermon. It is divided into two sections: the first being called “The Message of Christmas.” The second section is about the “Gifts of Christmas.” Most of the book is exact Scripture pertaining to the prophesies that foretold Christ’s birth and all the circumstances surrounding the event. The second half focuses on the gifts involved in Christmas, what it means to celebrate Christmas fully, which means to have a personal relationship with God Himself.
I love having a source for the Scriptures throughout the Bible at a moment’s notice on hand. There are selections from the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Zechariah, Luke, Matthew, John, Philippians, Colossians, and Revelation. From the section on gifts, we learn how Christmas applies to more than just a head knowledge of celebrating a holiday. Again, this part is filled with Scripture from 1 John, 1 Corinthians, Habakkuk, Philippians, 1 Peter, Matthew, Hebrews, and James. That’s because gifts are the application of the knowledge we have of what Christmas is: a gift from God to His beloved ones. That’s us.
This book is available in pamphlet form from TheMessageofChristmas.com where you can obtain a single copy or a pack of 20 pamphlets to share. At the end of this ebook, you are even given a link to download the entire Bible.
This book has one purpose in mind. It is to help the reader understand that Christmas is much more than just a few days off from work to celebrate a big dinner with family and friends. It is the outpouring of love that is expressed to all humankind in the gift of salvation through the man/God person of Jesus Christ. Christmas can be much more than just a day marked on your calendar. It could be the beginning of the rest of your life.
