For many, the Christmas season can be filled with
distractions and anxiety rather than the joy and peace it is
supposed to bring. In The Christmas Spirit, his first
holiday book, Joel Osteen offers uplifting and inspiring
stories of family and friends celebrating Christmas
traditions that will help readers return to the essence of
the holiday by practicing the principles taught by our
Savior, Jesus Christ, whose birth we celebrate that day.
With these stories, Joel reminds us all of what is truly
important in life. Filled with humorous and compelling
holiday memories from Joelís family and friends, this
heartwarming collection will inspire and amuse readers while
enhancing their faith in Godís goodness and eternal wisdom.
The stories in The Christmas Spirit reflect that
this Christian holiday is a celebration of family: Godís
family, our own, and the diverse global family. Friends and
families from near and far share faith and Christmas
traditions: They laugh together. They grieve together. They
support each other. They offer proof that the best way to
overcome hurt and loneliness is to reach out to others who
may be hurting and lonely, too.
Joelís unique stories
and memories will encourage readers to savor their own
Christmas memories, to share them with loved ones, and to
create new memories and traditions that will be passed down
for generations to come. For those feeling stressed, hurt,
or lacking direction this holiday season, these heartwarming
stories will serve as a healing balm and a guiding light to
a more hopeful and peaceful holiday.
Over the past
decade, Joel Osteen has been called the Most Influential
Christian in America by numerous publications and, in 2006,
was named one of Barbara Waltersís Most Fascinating People.
Hailed as ďAmericaís voice of hope,Ē Joel Osteen is
one of the most respected pastors in America. Each week
43,000 people attend his worship services at Lakewood Church
in Houston, and his weekly inspirational program is seen by
more than 7 million television viewers across America, along
with tens of millions more in 200 nations throughout the
world. This new book of stories from family and friends
about Christmas will be cherished by readers everywhere.
