Advent Conspiracy: Can Christmas Still Change the World?by Rick Mckinley
Synopses & Reviews
Tired of the consumerism that has come to define Christmas? Advent Conspiracy invites families, home groups, and churches to restore the heart of the Holiday. Unwrapping four simple but powerful concepts, this stirring book, complete with study guide, invites you to celebrate Jesus' birth more meaningfully by giving relationally to family, friends, and the less fortunate.
Each year Americans spend billions of dollars on material items at Christmas. That is a pretty weird way to celebrate the birth of Jesus, who gave up all of his riches to save the world. Christmas for Christians can be a time, however that is not a contradiction. It can be a time of worship, meaning and giving that is prophetic, powerful and transformative. In celebrating Christmas in the way of the story Christ followers are taught how to worship fully, spend less, give more and love all this Christmas and every Christmas.
Advent's powerful story brings with it the promise of transformation in Jesus' followers as they celebrate his birth with faithfulness and integrity by aligning themselves with Christ rather than competing with today's consumerist impulses.
