The Purpose of Christmas DVD study for groups and families features three sessions taught by Rick Warren on why we celebrate Christmas and how it can change our lives forever. At the very first Christmas the birth of Jesus an angel announced three things. In those three statements of the angel, we find the three purposes of Christmas. The three sessions on this DVD looks at each of those purposes: 1. Christmas is a time for celebration 2. Christmas is a time for salvation 3. Christmas is a time for reconciliation

Arlene Rice5 Stars Out Of 5December 24, 2008Arlene RiceI was considering purchasing this book but, put it on hold for other items until, a gentlemen in our Bible study fellowship said to everyone in the class..If you are looking for the best book or Dvd to give someone this year, buy Rick Warren's, The Purpose of Christmas. I immediately knew that God was getting my attention, for I am always looking to share Jesus and his gift of salvation to others...It is really the very best presentation we have watched and enjoyed and have given several copies as gifts...to God be the glory and thank you so much.
