Customer Reviews for The Purpose of Christmas - eBook
I purchased several of these to distribute among family and friends. Very well written and simple/short enough to not be intimidating for someone who is not a reader (there is actually one person in my family that is not a reader!). From this book I learned that 365 times in the Bible, God tells us "do not be afraid"--so that's 1 "Fear Not!" per day!!
Rick Warren’s book, The Purpose of Christmas, describes with simplicity and clarity the true message of Christmas. What does Christmas mean to you? Is it the shopping? Is it spending time with family? Is it giving to others? The true meaning and purpose of Christmas can be found in the story of Christ’s birth. Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of the Savior of the world.
The hurried activities during the holiday season can cause us to take our eyes off the manger. The manger was God’s way to bring Salvation to us. God sent his Son to give us freedom from sin, guilt, bitterness, and addiction. By looking to Jesus and trusting in Him you can be free. While reading this book you will be reminded that you were saved for a purpose. Your salvation was not a random act but a planned redemption. We should always be ready to share this Christmas message with others.
Jesus is the reason for the season and this book is a wonderful reminder of why we celebrate His birth. An easy read for anyone not familiar with the gospel and an encouraging read for anyone who has forgotten why we celebrate Christmas each year.
I was given this book by christianreviewofbooks.com to review
I ordered the book, DVD and Study Guides for a Christian small group (10 adults). We enjoyed the first session this week and are looking forward to the next two. We will finish a few days before two of the group leave for the holidays and will be donate the book to our church so others can borrow it. Your quick response, the reasonable cost of quality products and timely shipping made this possible. Thank you. Nancy
I gave this to my husband , who is a pastor. After reading the book he has used thoughts from it to bring messages to our congregation. Very inspiring and clearly something I would encourage others to read.
I had bought this book last Christmas and really loved it, so this year I bought 4 more copies and gave them out as gifts with a personal note on the inside cover....Hopefully they will lead a soul to Christ.
I love this book. I learned so much from it. It is easy read and I am going to lend it out to a few of my relatives. I have no regrets in buying this book, like I said, I learned from it and got lots of info out of it. I can't wait to buy more books from Rick Warren.
I enjoyed the book. I gave about 50 copies to friends as gifts. I think that Rick Warren gives a refreshed meaning to Christmas. I would recommend everyone reading this book and really learning the true meaning of Christmas.
This is a wonderful evangelistic tool and serves as a most appropriate Christmas Season gift book one can give to anyone, especially someone you wish to reach for Christ in a simple and loving way.Even a Christian will be reminded of the wonder of God's Gift to us.
Some basic Christian information from earlier talks, but a good highlighting of the significance of Christ's birth. Information was extracted and used by several pastors in my area for use in their Christmas sermons.
I've really enjoyed this book. I think it is a must read for everyone at or before Christmas time. Rick Warren has a very readable style and how he weaves scripture along with everyday things in the text is very good.
