What the community says about The Purpose of Christmas
- "I don't know a lot about Rick Warren. I have heard things on both sides. I figured I would read this book to know for myself where he stands. My family celebrates the holiday, and I was interested in the history of how it developed along with the added in folklore and how it came into being."
- "The real story of Christmas gets lost in all the shopping and gift giving of the season. I got this for my daughter to open her eyes to the real reason for the season, and take her mind off the material aspects as well. It did the job, even if it was just repeating what we all should already know."
- "I really appreciated reading this Christmas book. I read it during the Winter and it really made me appreciate my family and the holiday season. I was so motivated by the book that I visited my family after reading it and spent a few weeks with them before and after Christmas. The book was a quick and relaxing read, which is why I tried to read most of it whenever I would be at home near the fireplace, it helped create a comforting atmosphere. Any Christian should pick this book up."

in What are the best christian books"This is a great book as long as you ignore all the historical reasons it’s just not true, starting with the fact that the Puritans (aka the Christians we love to emulate from the early 1700s) hated Christmas and tried to ban it, so. You know. There are way better books on Chirstianity to read. "
- "I actually don't recommend this book for Christians, or anyone else. For believers it doesn't teach anything we don't already know, and for non-believers it can seem preachy, and at times even downright exclusive. There are just better books to read around the Christmas season, with more emphasis on the history and human element of the Christmas story."
