The Christmas Season is a Time to Rejoice!
Christmas is a wonderful time of year. A feeling of love and joy are in the air as we give gifts to family members and neighbors.
As everyone sets out to buy gifts for the family, they listen to I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas, but do they think about the real reason we celebrate Christmas? Do their children and teenagers understand who Jesus Christ is? Do they comprehend what He did for them? This is the perfect time of year to help them understand why they celebrate Christmas. But what is the best way to explain who Jesus is and why He is so important on Christmas Day?
There are many children's books about the stories of Jesus. Each one has cartoon-like drawings for young children and told in a simple way for them to understand. But how about the older children who can read and would much rather read something that fits their age? Is there something for them to read?
"The Christmas Story and Other beloved Stories of Jesus" is told in narrative style so readers can get to know Jesus. This style of writing brings the stories to life so readers can understand the scriptures better. These inspirational stories are for ages twelve and older. The font is larger for easier reading, especially for teenagers and grandparents.
In this book, the reader will learn about the birth of Jesus, the angel who told the shepherds about His birth, and the star that led wise men miles upon miles away to visit the Christ child. How about the miracles that Jesus performed? From the healing of the sick to feeding the five thousand with five barley loaves and two small fishes… from calming the wind and the waves to walking on water. These stories help our children to realize that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. This book also includes inspirational paintings by Del Parson, the renowned artist. His paintings give us a feeling of reverence and peace.
