"Peace on earth and goodwill toward men" will only be a wish and a vision until the Prince of Peace finally rules our world. The lights, the singing, the gift giving, and the joy foreshadow an eternal morning together in His presence. Through her artwork, her creative retelling of the Nativity, and her tender reflections of the Christmas season, Joni Eareckson Tada invites the reader to consider anew the Son of God, who is the wellspring of every joy, the fulfillment of every longing. Take time this Christmas season to step outside the clamor and excitement. Visit the stable and ask God to speak to you in the quiet and serenity and stillness...

Reviews - What do customers think about A Christmas Longing?
Christmas from the heart Dec 5, 2000
This book will take you back to the true meaning of Christmas and help to keep the craziness of the Christmas season from overwhelming us and drowning out that still small voice of God in our hearts. Short chapters make this book easy to read a bit at a time as we enjoy the days and weeks leading up to the annual celebration of the birth of our savior. The artwork, which Joni has done, by painting and drawing with her mouth, is inspirational in itself. A great gift for those you love and want to share the many joys of Christmas with.
