Tis the season.. right?
But what season? Is it Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas?
Without going into a long, politically incorrect rant here, I’ll just stick with the book review..
(though here in our home.. it will always, forever be Merry Christmas)
The War on Christmas: Battles in Faith, Tradition, and Religious Expression by Bodie Hodge is a must have for any Christmas home and also for those who are just truth seekers.
Wondering what Christmas is REALLY about? Wondering how far off from the true story we’ve gone? Than The War on Christmas is the book for you.
Bodie Hodge has done a terrific job in putting together a book that asks not only the tough questions about Christmas, but also some of the simplest ones that, over the years, have become distorted.
Does scripture really state there were three wise men?
Were they wise men or kings?
I could tell you the answers, but than you wouldn’t need this book.
As I sat and read through this book I kept thinking this would be a great resource for anyone that may not have a relationship with Jesus Christ, but is really seeking and wondering what this whole “Christmas” thing is about.
From the publisher:
- Is it a bunch of pagan symbols “Christianized” for the celebration?
- Why is our concept of Christmas so important for those who don’t believe in Jesus?
- Most may say Christmas is about the birth of Jesus, but are we truly worshiping Him or just celebrating the earthly gifts we give ourselves?
Filled with family get-togethers, office parties, breaks from school, decorating the tree, and more, Christmas is a time of peace and love. So why has so much controversy clouded this sacred holiday? It has become ground zero in an ongoing culture war where Nativity scenes are nixed, Merry Christmas becomes Happy Holidays, and even the word “Christmas” is considered by some as offensive. Find the truth about Christmas and the Christian’s response to a culture that seems to be declaring war.
