The trend in our current society is to celebrate and remove all reference to any religious, let alone Biblical basis to Christmas. ‘Goodness, they are bringing religion into Christmas ... What next?’ is a common feeling of a busy shopper on seeing a nativity scene in a shopping centre. This precious and warm celebration has become increasingly secular over the years. Few would deny that materialism has taken over almost completely. This book seeks to counter the current trend. It explains and informs the reader as to the true meaning of Christmas, and explores the different aspects Christians have come to believe, know and rejoice about Christmas. Whilst this book is definitely seasonal, its message is also eternal, for the purpose of Christ’s incarnation is eternal. ‘You shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins’ (Matthew 1:21). The Good News underlying Christmas is that when the Christmas experience actually happens in us, and the living Lord Jesus is known in our hearts, then the Christmas joy is not just
seasonal but everlasting.
