Product Description

Commercialism and kitsch have overshadowed the way the West celebrates Christ's birth. McKinley and Seay seek to counteract these cultural inroads by establishing vigorous traditions more in keeping with God's original intent—spending less, giving more, worshiping fully, and loving all. Christmas will change the world when you give what matters most—yourself! 160 pages, softcover from Zondervan with four session discussion guide.

Publisher's Description

"The story of Christ’s birth is a story of promise, hope, and a revolutionary love. So, what happened? What was once a time to celebrate the birth of a savior has somehow turned into a season of stress, traffic jams, and shopping lists. And when it’s all over, many of us are left with presents to return, looming debt that will take months to pay off, and this empty feeling of missed purpose. Is this really why we celebrate Christmas? What if Christmas became a world-changing event once again? [AC] Advent Conspiracy is an international movement restoring the scandal of Christmas by substituting compassion for consumption. For three years, Advent Conspiracy has been giving people hope that Christmas doesn’t have to be about credit cards, to-do lists and traffic jams. This four-session DVD study will introduce you to this revolution in compassion as you learn to: Worship Fully. It starts and ends with Jesus. It’s a season where love wins, peace reigns, and a king is celebrate. It’s the party of the year. Spend Less. Americans spend an average of $450 billion a year every Christmas. What if we all committed to buying just one less gift this year? Give More. God’s gift to us was a relationship built on love. Time is one of the more precious gifts we can give at Christmas, time to make love visible through relational giving. This Christmas, give presence to those you love. Love All. When Jesus loved, he loved in ways never imagined. By spending less at Christmas we have the opportunity to join him in giving resources to those who need them most. Nobody wants a Christmas worth forgetting. Welcome to the Advent Conspiracy."
