    One thought on “C Is for Christmas: The History, Personalities, and Meaning of Christ's Birth”

    1. I read this book as a study tool to prepare for preaching on Christmas Eve, but I don't believe that's what it was written for nor is it a good tool for that. It's written much more like a devotional-type tool for the believer who wants to reflect on Christmas during the advent season and maybe learn a few new things. There was little historical background of any real substance in it, though there certainly was some. I also found it to be very repetitive with exact phrases and ideas being mentio [...]

    2. I just finish reading this book. Yes, 4 Stars or less. I didn't like the fact the author from times to times indicate that Zechariah was also deaf. We know that he became silent since he didn't believed in Angel Gabriel. Where did Warren Wiersbe get the idea that Zechariah was deaf or couldn't hear?A side from that, there were a lot of repeat pattern in this. Repeat is good but sometime too much repeat in this book.

    3. A glossary of all things Christmas--at least all things Christian (no Santas or elves) about this holy day. The authors cover the people, places, prophecies, practices, and significance of Advent and Christmas. Most of the information was a good reminder of familiar facts, but I learned some new things as well. The only negative I found reading the book straight through was repetition; however, the repetition was necessary to make the book useful as a reference to look up individual words.

    4. This is an A to Z listing of terms associated with Christ's birth. It includes scripture references for study. An excellent resource for someone who is not familiar with the Christmas story and traditions, and a great refresher for long time believers.

    5. This book listed Christmas people and themes alphabetically and ws too repetitive. The Magi were explained in several places with the exact same paragraphs, for instance. May have worked better as a 25 day December devotional study.

    6. Enjoyable view of the true meaning of Christmas one word at a time from A (Advent) to Z (Zechariah). This book offers historical and spiritual insights to the holy season of Christmas that I had not considered when reading the biblical text. This would make a good Advent bible study.

    7. An interesting Advent read; repetitive, though, and a bit fussy for my taste. I'd suggest instead something from Max Lucado (more to my personal liking).

    8. A wonderful study for Advent or any other time of the year. When I first got the book I thought it an 'abc' book for children.

    9. Excellent book to put all the pieces together. All Christians should read this and not just at Christmas time.
