3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 Jan. 2009
Format: Hardcover
Pastor Rick Warren asked people what they were celebrating at Christmas and what they were grateful for. Not surprisingly in this secular society, few people mentioned Jesus Christ or Salvation.

This book has a dual value: Helping Christians to refocus on the spiritual significance of celebrating Jesus' birth and helping those who want to learn about Jesus to potentially decide to accept the free gift of Salvation. I was impressed at how well the book served both purposes.

Every Christian would benefit from reading (and re-reading) this book around Thanksgiving. It would also be a good idea to keep a few extra copies around to give to people who say that they would like to learn more about Christianity.

The book isn't heavy, and it's not light. I would describe it as "just right" for toning up your spiritual connection to the Lord. I liked the images and photographs in the book. They made The Purpose of Christmas seem like a family album.

Pastor Warren also describes how he decided that he wanted to celebrate Jesus' birthday as a youngster and started a family tradition that continues today.

What are you thankful to God for this year?

What are you going to give Jesus this year for His birthday party in December?

I particularly liked the latter question. Two Christmases ago, I decided to hold a global contest to find good ways to help lost people gain Salvation as a Christmas gift. I was so blessed by that experience. I feel inspired to find something like that to do in 2009.

May God bless you, your family, and all you do!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Toucan on 2 Dec. 2008
Format: Hardcover
There was a time before our increasingly diverse and secular society that a book like this wouldn't have been needed.The language is simple and straightforward making it accessible to all ages and stages,all faiths or none.This is not a religious book in the traditional sense.The book is divided into three sections of celebration,salvation and reconciliation in the context of our everyday lives.Christmas is viewed not as a once a year event but as the starting point or renewal of relationships with not just others but Jesus himself.
A lovely gift book.I would like to see it in paperback.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. It's a 'gift book' in that it's not hundreds of pages long. Ideal for someone who is asking questions about Jesus. Also an encouraging book for those who know that Jesus loves them but sometimes need reminding! Not to be confused with the Purpose Driven Life,(also by Rick Warren) which is also very good but much heavier going than this.
