C is for Christmas
C IS FOR CHRISTMAS : THE HISTORY, PERSONALITIES, AND MEANING OF CHRIST'S BIRTH
The real meaning of Christmas from A to ZThroughout the centuries so many traditions have woven themselves into the celebration of Christmas that it can be difficult to understand just what the season of Christ's birth is all about.
In C Is for Christmas, David and Warren Wiersbe cut through the fancy wrapping paper and pretty bows to give the background of the events surrounding Jesus' birth. They also explain the reasons for our various Christmas symbols and beliefs. From angels and Bethlehem to yuletide and Zechariah, the authors shed light on a wide variety of Christmas-related topics.

One of the most exhaustive compilations of the religious observance of Christmas that I have ever read. Arranged in an easy dictionary format you literally have all the facts at your fingertips. Concise definitions have the depth necessary to bring the Christmas story alive in a completely new way. Perfect for personal reflection as well as teaching Sunday School or participating in a pageant, C is for Christmas will bring you closer to the real meaning of the season.
