Overview

Advent Conspiracy: Can Christmas Still Change the World? by Rick McKinley, Greg Holder, Chris Seay

Worship More, Spend Less, Give Presence, Love All Are you tired of how consumerism has stolen the soul of Christmas? This year, take a stand! Join the groundswell of Christ-followers who are choosing to make Christmas what it should be—a joyous celebration of Jesus’ birth that enriches our hearts and the world around us, not a retail circus that depletes our pocketbooks and defeats our spirits. Advent Conspiracy shows you how to substitute consumption with compassion by practicing four simple but powerful, countercultural concepts: Worship Fully—because Christmas begins and ends with Jesus! Spend Less—and free your resources for things that truly matter. Give More—of your presence: your hands, your words, your time, your heart. Love All—the poor, the forgotten, the marginalized, and the sick in ways that make a difference. Find out how to have a Christmas worth remembering, not dreading. Christmas can still change the world when you, like Jesus, give what matters most—your presence.

An amazing book! Quick read, great to go through as an individual or as part of a bible study/larger group discussion. One part that hit me between the eyes discussed the fact that as a society we have overcome the major deadly diseases of the past (polio, diptheria, measles, etc), yet due to our worship of consumption, we have created the new deadly diseases that are killing us off (obesity, heart disease, diabetes). Over-consumption hasn't made anyone happy, it's never given anyone peace. But Jesus does, this book is a great guide on how to get back to the real meaning of Christmas.
