The Soul of Christmas

published by Franciscan Media | Hardback - With dust jacket | 160 pages
$ 19.99
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.

I have been busy and did not read the book yet.

The Soul of Christmas

I actually will probably not get into the book until Christmas approaches later this year—that was my intent in buying it.

Very disappointed in The Soul of Christmas.

It wasn’t at all what I was expecting. I’m not exactly sure what I expected, but The Soul of Christmas wasn’t it. It was mostly the author.


It fulfilled all my expectations- thankyou!

Very Philosophical and Wordy!

On his very first page I was awestruck to the author's statement ".....I see no evidence that Jesus intended to create a formal religion...." Although Jesus never stated His formal religion, those who followed Him, did. Whoever termed His followers as "Catholics" was Our Lord's nomenclature of His true religion. All those Christians who went by the wayside were in some way breaking away from His religion.. And when Thomas Moore states that ".....Christmas did not begin with Jesus.....", then then who did it begin with? CHRIST IS CHRISTMAS!!!!

Thomas Moore is the author of the New York Times bestsellers, Care of the Soul, Soul Mates, and twenty other books on deepening spirituality and cultivating soul in every aspect of life. He has been a monk, a musician, a university professor, and a psychotherapist, and today he lectures widely on holistic medicine, spirituality, and psychotherapy. He has PhD in religion from Syracuse University, has won several awards for his work, and writes regular columns for Resurgence and Spirituality & Health magazines.
