With his trademark blend of storytelling, faith and psychological insight, New York Times bestselling author Thomas Moore turns his attention to the most enduring story of them all: the birth of Christ in Bethlehem. Moore uses passages from the Gospels, archetypal stories and ancient myths to explore the idea that Christmas can only be fully understood as belonging to everyone—as a plan for the entire human race. This may be the most profound reflection on the meaning of Christmas in a generation. Stock #: B53120

The Soul of Christmas

Overall, this is an excellent book as Thomas More writes to show that Christmas is offered to believers & nonbelievers alike.
The book has great spiritual depth yet is readable for seekers as well. My one criticism is that More sees astrology as one of several lenses with which to view
Christmas. I believe that this dangerous as Scripture prohibits us from studying or consulting astrology.
I will keep this on Advent and Christmas bookshelf. There are lots of treasures in it. I will just reject the straw of astrology.


A moving and contemplative experience


The Soul of Christmas


I guess I was expecting the book to be more religious, more about Christ. Not a bad book.

Christmas Inspiration

My husband and I read it aloud to each other, a chapter a night through the Christmas Season. It did keep us focused on the meaning of Christmas.
