Book Review of The War on Christmas by Bodie Hodge

The War on Christmas

The War on Christmas is a beautiful book that delves into the controversy surrounding this beloved holiday and examines traditions, misconceptions and what the Bible really says about Christmas. All 144 pages are lavishly illustrated on heavy, glossy pages and is both a treat to look at, as well to read. The book covers quite a bit of material and questions are looked at in depth like, "Isn't Christmas a pagan holiday?" and whether there really were "3 kings". The War on Christmas also addresses issues like Santa Claus and points out that the Bible is full of commands against deceiving others.

The book declares (after discussing many topics):

"This Christmas, may we suggest that you start a new tradition: remove the nativity out from its hiding place under the tree and set it in a featured place in your home. Take the wise men and place them across the room. After all, they're probably still on their way! Then set aside a special time to gather together, open the Bible, and read the amazing historical record of Mary and Joseph, to whom God entrusted His precious son."

Our family used this book as a read-aloud (with our teen son) so we all could listen in and discuss the different chapters. We all enjoyed it. I can see us bringing it out each year in December as a reminder of what Christmas is really all about and how we can promote the "real reason for the season" as a family.

*I recieved a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
