Publisher's Description

Blends fantasy and allegory to give families and children a fresh look at the wonder of the Incarnation and of the "Christmas" that occurs when God finds a lost sinner.

Dylan loves his family’s yearly vacation to Holiday and wishes it could last all year. When he finds a flyer asking if he’d like to keep Holiday, he encounters a bigger and better Holiday than the one his family has always visited; he also learns that entering it requires the Founder’s authorization. Thus begins Dylan’s quest to meet the one of whom people keep saying: "You can’t find the Founder; he finds you./He’s not just the Founder, he’s the Finder too."

As Dylan reads of Holiday’s origins, he experiences a number of adventures and meets characters who represent the sights and sounds he always finds in Holiday-characters who explain how each of these familiarities points to the Founder’s previous rescue of the city’s inhabitants. And the more Dylan learns, the more he longs to personally know the one who holds the key to entering the "real Holiday."

Writing for elementary-age children and older, author, teacher, and grandmother Starr Meade offers a book that families can read together, discovering along with Dylan how God brings a person to faith. Keeping Holiday is also a charming, insightful way to help children grasp the meaning of the Incarnation.

Endorsement

"I love it. In reading Keeping Holiday, I was reminded of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress and C. S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia. It is delightful reading that pulls you into the adventures of Dylan and Clare and tells the story of God’s work in the lives of those who are called according to his purpose. Children from 8 to 78 will be captivated by this spellbinding story."—R. C. Sproul, President, Ligonier Ministries
