    One thought on “C Is for Christmas: The History, Personalities, and Meaning of Christ's Birth”

    1. I've been reading this book with my friend/mentor. We've meet once a week to discuss 1/4 of the book during each visit. My favorite aspect of the book has been how the Wiersbe's have allowed the Word to speak for itself. When they make statements they support their claims with scripture, word studies, and historical data. I also really enjoyed the absence of personal stories. Their focus is completely on Christ and the Christmas narrative. It's an excellent selection for new and mature believers [...]

    2. I have a tradition of reading at least one Christmas book during December. I bought this in Kindle format a few years ago, and chose it as my seasonal reading this year.The Wiersbe father-and-son team examined every incarnation-related scripture in the Bible, Old and New Testaments, and indexed them in C is for Christmas. The topics are arranged alphabetically, covering concepts such as Advent, Bethlehem, Epiphany, Glory, Immanuel, Joy, Messiah, Peace, Shepherds, Tidings, Word, and Zechariah. Th [...]

    3. This is a thorough look at Christmas from A to Z. I expected a light primer on the various aspects of Christmas, but what I found was an in-depth look at the biblical foundation of Christmas. There is a lot of substance here. Each entry investigates a biblical, Christmas-related character, object, or theme. The authors include plenty of biblical references to support their scholarship. As a pastor, I even found plenty of ideas for future Advent related preaching series. There was one minor flaw [...]

    4. This was a delightful book to read during the Christmas season. It covers all the main characters of the Christmas season - from A to Z.It's a book I enjoyed reading a little bit at a time. I started it after Thanksgiving and read a letter or two each day.I picked up some new information reading this book. I enjoyed the clear explanations provided by the author.

    5. I enjoyed reading this. The authors use each letter of the alphabet to explore a bit of the Christmas story and the prophecies about the coming of the Messiah. I really liked that they didn't write out each Bible verse they listed. As I read the sections, I used it to be my personal Bible study time by looking up the verses. It really added to my study.

    6. Clear ApproachSome thoughtful insights. The book gives nuggets that bring light to aspects of the Christmas tradition. Good resource to use when planning bible study and advent and Christmas educational events.

    7. Not just for ChristmasI give this book a 5 star rating. It's so full of insight even for someone who thought I had a pretty good grasp on the basics. I found many gold nuggets so that I found myself taking notes.

    8. I loved this book. It was very insightful and thought provoking. Some of the material was familiar, much was new information. I loved the ABC format and the wide range of topics discussed.

    9. I like reading Warren Wiersbe's books. This book makes a great Advent devotional type book or can be used as a quick reference guide to the elements and characters of the Nativity story.

    10. This book gets rid of all the Fluff of Christmas and takes us to the real meaning and people of that time. I plan on reading this book again.

    11. Wiersbe takes the reader through Christmas from A to Z. This book is full of a lot of facts regarding this most important event while leaving out the hyped up retail / commercial flaws we see during the festive season. Wiersbe reminds us of the man behind the season, the carpenter's son, not the fat guy dressed in red.
