Max Lucado loves Christmas. Let the sleigh bells ring. Let the carolers sing. The more Santas the merrier. The more trees the better.

He loves it because somewhere someone will ask the Christmas questions: What’s the big deal about the baby in the manger? Who was he? What does his birth have to do with me?

And the answers he’s found give us all hope. God knows what it’s like to be a human. When we talk to him about deadlines or long lines or tough times, he understands. He’s been there. He’s been here. Because of Bethlehem, we have a friend in heaven. 

And Christmas begins what Easter celebrates. The child in the cradle became the King on the cross. Because of Bethlehem, we have a Savior in heaven.

These are the heart shaping promises of Christmas. Long after the guests have left and the carolers have gone home and the lights have come down, these promises endure.

Let’s turn on the lamp, curl up in a comfortable spot, and look into the odd, wonderful story of Bethlehem.

Max has found a lifetime of hope. We will too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Colouring Book Bought my mom this and the colouring book to go with it. Not only does it share the true meaning of Christmas and the reasons to believe, but also provides a great amount of entertainment to pass the time as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Christmas Read I was looking for a book to read leading up to Christmas that would help me stay focused on the true meaning of Christmas, focusing on Jesus and not just gifts. This was a great read. I found it easy and fast to read, which is nice will all the busyness that comes in December, especially with small children at home. Max Lucado is great at bringing in personal stories and and showing how they relate to all of us and to the Bible and the story of Jesus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from makes for a great Christmas gift! This is a beautiful book that in its own way narrates the birth of Jesus. It has intricate designs not for beginners. The only thing is the designs are in front and back of the pages. However, if you are the kind of person like that does not bothers you to have designs front and back, this is the book for you. This book is beautiful in its story and design, and I would not let a two page design bother me.
