- Is it a bunch of pagan symbols “Christianized” for the celebration?
- Why is our concept of Christmas so important for those who don’t believe in Jesus?
- Most may say Christmas is about the birth of Jesus, but are we truly worshiping Him or just celebrating the earthly gifts we give ourselves?
Filled with family get-togethers, office parties, breaks from school, decorating the tree, and more, Christmas is a time of peace and love.
So why has so much controversy clouded this sacred holiday? It has become ground zero in an ongoing culture war where Nativity scenes are nixed, Merry Christmas becomes Happy Holidays, and even the word “Christmas” is considered by some as offensive.
Find the truth about Christmas and the Christian’s response to a culture that seems to be declaring war.
Here are my thoughts:
I can almost hear the comments..."Here we go again!"..."Must be the season?!" "Blah, Blah, Blah" etc...
But seriously Folks, did you ever wonder if 25 December was in fact Christ's actual birth day or if He was truly laid in a manger or perhaps if Christmas is in fact based on a Pagan holiday? If you have asked yourself any or all of these questions and a myriad more - and found little no answers -, this book is for you! Here is the Christian response to a world often warring traditions and the Bible!
To have a better understanding of the real Christmas, its traditions and often misconceptions, this compilation by General Editor Bodie Hodge is going to be just what you have been looking for!
Personally I have always wonder at the star leading the wise men from the East to the exact spot in the little town of Bethlehem where our Saviour was born...Then there is the significance of Jesus' name, even the X in Xmas is detailed as well as an explanation of the virgin birth...
THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS includes twenty three chapters, beautifully illustrated and packed with all sorts of revelations, including end notes and references making it a true Christmas encyclopedia!
The perfect gift for any parent, youth instructor or church library and well worth 5 stars!
