God Rest Ye Merry: Why Christmas is the Foundation for Everything
We’re sorry but you missed this offer. It is no longer free or a deal.
The repetition of Christmas traditions can appear to dull the powerful nature of the holiday. This short book is meant to rekindle the Christian’s understanding of Advent on every front, from politics to shopping to uproarious celebration. Pastor Douglas Wilson critiques false reasons for the season (and false objections to it), teaches the importance of Israel in Christmastime history, explains why nativity sets should have Herod’s soldiers (and how Santa Claus once punched a man in the face at a church council), offers the Enlightenment Assumptions Detector test as a guide to understanding Christmas symbolism, and much more. The last section is an all-new Advent reader: it contains a read-aloud meditation and prayer for each day of Advent, making God Rest Ye Merry an excellent tool for cultivating a deep family love of Christmas.
