Reviews - What do customers think about A Purse-driven Christmas: So, What Did You Get Me??
Loved it. Dec 14, 2008
My wife was given this book and has bought several copies to give to her friends. In the end, what better recommendation is there? Hopefully, I won't sound hateful, she did the entire book and she is a Christian.

I bought this for my sister in Az and she was happy for the fast service and good read
Frustrated and Saddened by the Attitude of This "Christian" Book Sep 3, 2007
First an admission: I have not read the entire book, only a few excerpts. However, the sections I have read seem very typical of Renfroe. This book provides far too much fodder for anyone who considers evangelical women shopaholic airheads who have little concern for the world that Jesus wept over but instead need to get their shopping fixes and focus on decor, makeup, etc. Renfroe IS an entertaining writer--hence two stars and not just one--but the shallowness she seems to espouse is totally counter to a servant life style focused on Christ. Yes, she slips little messages into some sections, but she never challenges--and instead seems to glorify--the woman who spends frivolously just for the fun of it. From the first pages when she jokingly chides the woman who only has one purse or doesn't rearrange her furniture often, it is clear that she is not interested in any kind of serious thinking about how our behavior affects the world God has placed us in.
No, we are not called to a joyless existence as Christians, but to totally ignore the impact of such a consumerist mentality on the world around us is irresponsible and seems alien to our Savior's love and care for all around him. Please don't waste your money on this or similar books.
More than a belly laugh!!!! Jul 26, 2006
If you have ever seen Anita Renfroe live (I have 3 times now) then you know what you are in for with the Purse-Driven Christmas: So, What Did You Get Me? You are guaranteed to meet your daily "belly laugh quota" with this light, fun and oh sooo girlie book. I laughed all the way through. I loved it and all of my "slightly off kilter" girlfriends do to, so preheat the "easy bake oven" grab yourself a "Venti Mocha" and an oversized stuffed chair and lose yourself in some real "sistah" fun! Perfect gift idea!!! A Huge Renfroe fan In Fort Collins, CO
