What is this book about?
The thought of Christmas stirs up different emotions inside everybody. The holiday season is magical for some — filled with celebration, quality time with family, and an abundance of presents around the tree. For others, thinking about Christmas triggers instant anxiety, pain, loneliness, and a fearful glance at their bank account.

Regardless of how you feel about the holidays, one thing is sure: Christmas is coming! In Christmas Comes, I address some of Christmas’ biggest tensions. I show how Jesus’ birth can fill your heart with cheer instead of fear this Christmas season.

You don’t have to power your way through the holidays this year. Christmas Comes is your guide to a great Christmas!

What do you want your readers to gain by reading your book?
Hopefully, they will be encouraged to find true hope, peace, love, and joy this Christmas and to share it with others.

Why did you write this book?
I wrote this book as a way to encourage Christians during the Christmas season and also as a way to help Christians engage non-Christians with the message of Christ during Christmas. Furthermore, this book contains an advent reading guide and free sermon outlines and graphic designs so that others might use it in their church during the month of December.

Who do you hope will read this book?
Christians and non-Christians
