Learn Something New This Christmas We hate to admit it, but after years, sometimes even decades, of reading the same Luke 2 story of Christmas, we get a little bored—we lose some of the awe we ought to have when discussing the greatest miracle in history. That’s why The Characters of Christmas was written, to help you take a fresh look at the Christmas story by getting to know the minor characters that played a part in Jesus’ birth, such as Zechariah and Elizabeth, the Shepherds, and Herod. As you slow down, engage your imagination, and enter into the stories of these women and men, you’ll see the most important character—Jesus Christ—with new eyes. And with discussion questions and a Christmas song suggestion at the end of each chapter, it’s perfect for engaging your whole family. Break free from the familiar, and discover something you never knew about the story you’ve always heard.
Every character that is central to the traditional Christmas story is part of the greater story of God's greatest gift to humanity.
Author: Steve Biddison
Every character that is central to the traditional Christmas story is part of the greater story of God's greatest gift to humanity. Because of that gift, we can enjoy the decoration, the lights, the carols, and our family throughout each Christmas season. This 25 day family devotional examines the main characters in the Christmas story to see what we as individuals as well as family units can learn from how they responded a couple of thousand years ago. It not only brings the family together each day during the Christmas season, but gives a way to keep the true meaning of Christmas at the forefront of our personal and family life.
Although the word “Christmas” is in the title of this book, and Johnson uses the characters of Christmas throughout, the themes illuminated about God are relative during any calendar season or any season of life.

What am I to do when I don't know what to do? What is God doing in the midst of my seemingly impossible situation? How do I know what God wants me to do when I have a decision to make? What is the best plan for me to execute? What is God doing in my life? These are questions many are asking today. Author and pastor Gregory A. Johnson takes the characters of Christmas from the Bible and brings to the reader's attention certain themes about God that helps to answer these questions and many more like them. Although the word “Christmas” is in the title of this book, and Johnson uses the characters of Christmas throughout, the themes illuminated about God are relative during any calendar season or any season of life.

Author: Gregory Kenneth Cameron
Publisher: Paraclete Press (MA)
Drawing from the medieval tradition of the illuminated Book of Hours, Gregory Cameron has created a collection of visio divina for Advent. The aim of this little volume is to give everyone who celebrates Christmas some spiritual food to nurture them through the journey of Advent. There is a chapter for each day from December 1 to December 25, with a reflection drawing upon scriptures, history, and legend about the "character" of the day (for example, Gabriel, the Virgin Mary, the Star, the Magi, and of course the Christ Child). The text is augmented by an illustration from the author adapted from famous works of art, depicting various aspects of the Christmas story through the centuries.

"Lurie takes particular interest in the influence of cinema on Faulkner's fiction and the visual strategies he both deployed and critiqued. These include the suggestion of cinematic viewing on the part of readers and of characters in each of the novels; the collective and individual acts of voyeurism in Sanctuary and Light in August; the exposing in Absalom! Absalom! and Light in August of stereotypical and cinematic patterns of thought about history and race; and the evocation of popular forms like melodrama and the movie screen in If I forget thee, Jerusalem. Offering innovative readings of these canonical works, this study sheds new light on Faulkner's uniquely American modernism."--BOOK JACKET.
