Overview

I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.—Luke 2:10-11

A Classic Christmas is more than a joyful song or an inspirational poem to lift your spirit. It is more than a story that captivates you with engaging characters and clever twists and turns of plot. It is more than a tradition or legend that encourages you to practice goodwill among family, friends, and strangers. It is more than a new and profound way of expressing spiritual truth that fascinates your mind and imagination. It is more than charming renditions from the art world.

A Classic Christmas is all those things—yet more. At its heart it is an invitation for you to celebrate the good news that a baby is born, that a savior has come to the world.

As you turn the pages, you will be greeted with a blend of enchanting passages from literary greats, thought-provoking spiritual and personal reflections, a delightful sprinkling of poetry and verse, and cherished traditions and folklore—all woven together with sacred text from God's Word.

From C. S. Lewis to Martin Luther, from Frederick Buechner to Laura Ingalls Wilder, from John Paul II to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, from Billy Graham to Mark Twain—savor, treasure, and laugh aloud to words that transcend centuries.

Most of all, celebrate the birth of a baby that touches hearts and lives for eternity.

A Classic Christmas is a joy to read silently in personal moments of reflection—or aloud with family, friends, and neighbors.

    Classic Christmas

    This was a wonderful book with many good Bible verses and short stories about Christmas. It's an easy read. I loved it and know that others will too. I felt very inspired by the book.

    An interesting look back at Christmases past

    This book is a collection of well-know and not-so-well-known authors from the past 200+ years in literature. I learned some interesting history about Christmas celebrations/traditions that have been all but forgotten in modern times. This book provided a relaxing short read before bedtime each night during the holidays. I may make it my tradition to read it every year in December.
