Item description for The Purpose of Christmas by Rick Warren...

Overview
Offers a thought-provoking look at the true meaning of Christmas and explains how it can be viewed as a time for celebration, salvation, and reconciliation for all men.

Publishers Description

Hailed by The Economist as the "the most influential pastor in America," and by Time as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, the bestselling author of The Purpose Driven Life expounds on the profound origins of Christmas, describing it as an opportune time to welcome peace into our lives.

In his powerful yet compassionate voice, Pastor Rick Warren sounds the clarion call to "remember the reason for the season," taking readers back in time to the most wonderful story of all -- the birth of the baby Jesus. When he was just a small boy, young Rick asked his parents if they could celebrate Christmas with a birthday party for Jesus -- and the tradition began that the Warrens have upheld for over fifty years. Now through stirring imagery and compelling personal insights, The Purpose of Christmas honors the significance and promise of this cherished holiday.

Pastor Warren encourages readers to identify and confront what drains peace from their lives. Warren explains that the way to respond to these peace-robbers is to learn how to surrender to God's will and not feel defeated or discouraged when life does not go as planned. True peace of mind is found by having an unshakeable faith in God -- knowing that his empowering Spirit will guide his children through life's challenges.

Beautifully written, The Purpose of Christmas will stir readers to honor the true significance of Christmas and to nurture God's gifts of love and peace in this world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Purpose Of Christmas?

Simplistic beauty  Mar 12, 2010
This book was given to me for Christmas and my son wanted it so I got a copy from the library, then bought my own copy. This removes all doubt, self-conscious thinking and any barrier as to who Jesus Christ is as Son of God and Savior of all humankind, wnat He did and who we are in Him. It clearly defines our purpose in life no matter who we are or what our occupation.
 
Exceptional  Feb 6, 2010
Rick Warren has surpassed himself with the clear presentation of the PURPOSE of Christmas. In plain, simple English he presents the message so that only those with the hardest of hearts can ignore, and perhaps not many of them. I gave this book as Christmas presents to my siblings, children, and friends this past year. Besides the Bible, this is a very important work. I encourage everyone to pick up a copy and spend a little time getting the message.
 
Christmas Does Have a Purpose  Feb 2, 2010
I have been using this book with special needs adults as a Sunday School lesson book. We have all enjoyed the personal stories Rick included that made the story of Christmas come home even more. The tie in with this book and his Purpose Driven Life book is profound and quite meaniful. I cannot imagine reading the Purpose Driven Life text without reading this followup book. Being able to find touching and meaningful materials that reach special needs adults has always been a chore. Too many Bible quotes, too much theology or a text that is written to a high level of understanding. Rick hit home with a down to earth story that all can understand and be touched by his words. Thanks Rick. A+
 
The Main Point of Christmas  Dec 19, 2009
Rick Warren, some have named him "America's pastor," furnishes the reader with an inspiring and Bible-based volume on the true meaning of Christmas.

This slender book winsomely and effectively covers:

- The birth of Christ: its meaning and impact
- The manner in which the Christian should celebrate the holiday season (with practical applications offered)
- Salvation and real hope come with Jesus
- Family is important during the holidays, but Christ must be the center
- How to reach out to secular folks who may not like the religious aspect of the seasonal trappings.

This is a marvelous book for personal devotions, family Bible study, and home groups. Furthermore it makes a wonderful gift to help draw others close to the wonderful one: Jesus Christ.
The Necessary Existence of God: The Proof of Christianity Through Presuppositional Apologetics
 
Great book.  Dec 17, 2009
More and more people seem to forget what Christmas (with a capital "C") is all about. Rick Warren does a great job of reminding us that Christ is the real reason for Christmas.
