I am so enjoying this little book. Each morning I read one little section. It helps me focus on the real meaning of Christmas in the midst of all the rush. Max Lucado has such a great way of bringing the story to life and pointing out things you wouldn't think of. I would love to give this book as Christmas gifts ahead of time next year.
I recieved an advance copy of this book earlier this month at the Southern Baptist Convention. I read through it on a whim because of my love for Max's style of writing. It is a compilation of excerts from some of his better known books all centered around the birth of Christ and the feelings of Mary and Joseph. It is an easy read as are all of Max's books and yet so informative and uplifting. I recommend it to all, believers or not. It should open your eyes and your heart and make you sing.
I have always liked Max Lucado. This book took selections from his other works and utilized them for the advent season. I read this out loud to my children during advent. It was interesting enough to -usually- keep my 9 year olds attention, yet meaningful enough to impact my 21 year-old when she visited.
