About the Book

This book is beautifully illustrated and tells the delightful story of Jesus coming to earth as the greatest gift ever given! It tells of Gods’ great love to come down and die for our sins and give us the gift of salvation and eternal life with him. It also tells us that Santa as we have come to know him is not true. Instead it says that the Santa tradition of gift giving began with the Wise Men. It gives a delightful account of how gift giving spread around the world as the good news did. This book invites all of us to become like the Wise Men of old, and to believe the stories in the Bible are true. It invites all of us to do more for the poor, and become a Santa too. It invites all to believe in the one true God and to allow Him to dwell in our hearts. There are Bible Text references which can be looked up as you read the story. This will become a cherished book for family worship time leading up to Christmas day each year.
