Remember the Reason for the Season and go back in time to the most wonderful story of all - the birth of the baby Jesus.
When he was just a small boy, young Pastor Rick Warren asked his parents if they could celebrate Christmas with a birthday party for Jesus -- and the tradition began that the Warren's 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.
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.This gift book has been enhanced with vivid photos.
