3. Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.
Someone once told me that classics are the best reads during the holidays. Especially when that classic so aptly captures the reason we celebrate Christmas – God’s relentless love. if you’re having a hard time learning to deal with your loud, boisterous and colourful family this holiday, this tale of love is for you.

4. The Gift for All People: Thoughts on God’s Great Grace by Max Lucado.
One reader had this to say about it: “A wonderful book, simple in its delivery but profound in meaning. The message that God loves me and wants me for his child was just the message I needed to hear today.I had read and reread several chapters many times before I finally finished this book. Mr. Lucado makes God’s love for all of us truly “The Gift for all people”. I will definitely purchase several copies for friends.”
This is a book filled with beautiful, easy-to-read musings and poems that create the imagery of God’s love exhibited in Christ – Christmas.
