What is this book about?
The thought of Christmas stirs up different emotions inside everybody. The holiday season is magical for some — filled with celebration, quality time with family, and an abundance of presents around the tree. For others, thinking about Christmas triggers instant anxiety, pain, loneliness, and a fearful glance at their bank account.
Regardless of how you feel about the holidays, one thing is sure: Christmas is coming! In Christmas Comes, I address some of Christmas’ biggest tensions. I show how Jesus’ birth can fill your heart with cheer instead of fear this Christmas season.
You don’t have to power your way through the holidays this year. Christmas Comes is your guide to a great Christmas!

Why did you write this book?

Furthermore, this book contains an advent reading guide and free sermon outlines and graphic designs so that others might use it in their church during the month of December.
