A Better December: Proverbs to Brighten Christmas
Combining true, heart-warming stories with pen-and-ink illustrations, the book uncovers and answers our December longings. Beginning with bite-sized chapters of Solomon's advice to frazzled, lonely people at Christmas, Steven Estes presents the ancient sage as penning his blockbuster Proverbs to help future readers through holiday stress and even sadness. Meant to be shared with all who long for a better December, it points the way to true comfort and a true home. A Better December is an ideal gift book for non-Christian friends and neighbors with a gradual, non-threatening introduction to the gospel.

"It was way past my bedtime and I opened the book a crack for an idea of tomorrow's reading. I was hooked. Estes threaded the loose beads of Proverbs on a string and strung me along till the last word of the last page. I cried like a baby starting at the chapter called 'Longings.' I love this book; and consider it one of God's little kisses to me that I ever came across it.' -Andrée Seu Peterson, Senior Writer, World Magazine
"Here's a book like you've never read before. It meets us at the intersection of ancient biblical wisdom and the dreams, struggles, and disappointments that are part of our Christmas season. With humor, poignancy, and clarity Estes demonstrates that Solomon knew things about our holidays that we all need to know. With the help of Solomon, Estes shows you how you can have a Christmas that actually matches the message of the season you are celebrating." -Paul Tripp, Paul Tripp Ministries; best-selling author of books on Christian living
"I've found it! The perfect gift for special friends at the season of the year that's so full of delights and stresses. This unique little gem of a book seems to have managed lightning strikes on every page - surprise lightning strikes of wit and wisdom that wouldn't let me put it down until I'd explored it to the end, an end that came all too soon. Steve, you've done it again: invented a new genre and made it soar." -J. Robertson McQuilkin, President Emeritus, Columbia International University
"Steve coauthored When God Weeps with Joni Eareckson Tada in 1997. It was - and remains - an outstanding book, one of the finest books on suffering I've read. Soon after I completed it, I began to look forward to his next book. But there wasn't another. And for years I have appealed to him to write again. Now, twelve years later, my wait is over. I am grateful Steve has written A Better December. Let's hope he doesn't make us wait another decade for his next book." -C. J. Mahaney author of The Cross-Centered Life
