Publishers Description "Is there an idea or a dream that is lingering in the back of your mind this Christmas season?" asks the Reverend Robert H. Schuller in "Joy to the World: Inspirational Christmas Messages from America's Preachers." "Is there some long-lost hope that you just cannot forget? God often comes through these thoughts. It is God at work in you." "Track what we call our good fortune and we shall see God clearly in our lives," says the Reverend Gardner C. Taylor in his message. He asked the question "Did you ever sit among your family and, strangely, feel a thankfulness which made you somewhat shamefacedly brush a tear away? You heard the angels sing " "Christmas is a time of establishing and celebrating many traditions," begins the Reverend Paula White in her reflection. This is but a sampling of dozens of messages on the true meaning of Christmas included in this first book to celebrate the spirituality of Christmas by bringing together a diverse collection of messages from Christian leaders from across the country. Contributors to this collection represent congregations from Hawaii to New York to Atlanta and all the regions surrounding and in between.

This timeless treasure trove of inspiration and teaching has something for everyone and is the perfect gift for the season of giving. "Joy to the World" shares the spirit of Christmas throughout the year.

When You're in Need Dec 14, 2006
And we always are in need. I got this book as a gift because my pastor, Dan Chun, is one of the featured pastors in this book. But beyond Dan's sermon, this collection is chock-full of incredible, Christ-filled sermons that you can go to when you feel you need a good Word. When you're caught between Sundays and you feel like you have to plug in to Jesus. So many pastors pull out all stops and save their best for a Christmas sermon. It's like reading the best-of from all these preachers. Joy To The World makes for a great Christmas present. Or a gift for all year 'round.
