The Joy of Christmas:

The evangelism book, The Joy of Christmas, provides a simple and natural opportunity to give a witness of Christ by inviting non-Christian friends and relatives to join in reading a shorter version of the life of Christ during the Christmas season.

Scripture passages are taken from an easy-to-read translation designed to be read in seven chapters, either one each day for a week or at one sitting.

Offering a book to a non-Christian friend can be as simple for church members as saying, "At our church we want this to be the most meaningful Christmas we've ever had, so we are reading together through the life of Christ. Our church bought some special books about His life, and I'd like to give one to you." Sometime after giving the book, an invitation can be extended to that person to Christmas services.

The 25 Days to Christmas book itself contains a salvation presentation and can also be given to unbelievers. Those especially from a mainline or liturgical church background who are acquianted with the Advent season might utilize the book in reading aloud to their families.

Both books conclude with the compelling fact that the life of Christ calls for a decision in everyone's life and contains a section which leads a person to a decision to receive Christ as Savior. It also gives guidance to new Christians to begin daily Bible reading and prayer, join a church and share Christ with others.
