'The Purpose of Christmas' by Rick Warren


Pastor Rick Warren of the Saddleback Church located in Lake Forest, California who wrote the bestseller The Purpose Driven Life reminds us the reason for the Christmas season in this small but with an epic message in The Purpose of Christmas is all about Jesus.

In our busy lives of today we think Christmas is about shopping or surviving the Christmas season, it’s not. Warren reminds us it’s about the celebration of the birth of Jesus and for us to honor his birth by having a birthday party for Him. The book is broken down into four chapters, which include: The purpose of Christmas, A time for celebration, A time for salvation and finally a time for reconciliation.

Warren writes about our attitudes with God and what can save us when we transform our hearts to God. He recounts his experience after writing The Purpose Driven Life, in which he was a target of mean-spirited people, and what he did to focus and stay on the true path.

He answers the three questions that we all ask such has: Why am I alive? Why does my life matter? And what is my purpose? in a simple way that makes sense.

The Purpose of Christmas will leave you uplifted and want you to celebrate Christmas every day of the year and not just on December 25.
