In his powerful yet compassionate voice, Pastor Rick Warren sounds the clarion call to "remember the reason for the season," taking listeners back in time to the most wonderful story of all - the birth of the baby Jesus.When he was just a small boy, young Rick asked his parents if they could celebrate Christmas with a birthday party for Jesus - and the tradition began that the Warrens have upheld for over 50 years. Now, through stirring imagery and compelling personal insights, The Purpose of Christmas honors the significance and promise of this cherished holiday.Pastor Warren encourages listeners to identify and confront what drains peace from their lives. Warren explains that the way to respond to these peace-robbers is to learn how to surrender to God's will and not feel defeated or discouraged when life does not go as planned. True peace of mind is found by having an unshakeable faith in God - knowing that his empowering Spirit will guide his children through life's challenges.Beautifully written, The Purpose of Christmas will stir listeners to honor the true significance of Christmas and to nurture God's gifts of love and peace in this world.Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.
