This book is a guide to reclaiming the spirit of Christmas. Its a heartwarming invitation to say goodbye to the mall frenzy of marketing inspired "giving" gluttony that suckers us now. This book was an eye and heart opener for us, freeing us to really give and share with greater intention. Buy the hardcopy so you can share it - and then share it broadly!

This little book, a plea for taking the comsumerism out of Christmas, is so well-written, so sensible, so appealing, that I can't see why anyone wouldn't like it. Bill McKibben has to be a good man, and so sincere and passionate in his presentation that he could melt the heart of a Scrooge. I wish everybody would read this book, every teacher teach it, every church study it. It propounds an idea whose time has come, an idea which, if taken to heart by all of us, could change the world, could make a better world.

Yes, this book is a bit on thin side, but maybe that's the way the author hopes to reach as many readers as possible. Let's face it, the overwhelming movement to commercialize one of the year's most holy days doesn't exactly emphasize lengthy reading. The heart of this book is in the proper place.
