You must admit, it's a pretty interesting way to celebrate the birth of Jesus. God chose to enter the world through the poor, to be poor, and we mark this earth-shattering event by spending billions on stuff that we generally don't need.
The good people at Advent Conspiracy ask the question, 'Are you tired of how consumerism has stolen the soul of Christmas?' I am. I'm also tired of how it steals the soul of God's Church, and how it threatens to steal my own soul. Joining the Advent Conspiracy is a good way to fight back. In simple but piercing and powerful language this book looks at the need to Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, and Love All. One could be forgiven for thinking that perhaps this is not just about Christmas, but about the Gospel of Jesus itself. But, let's start with Christmas.
Starting with a brief history of how the Advent Conspiracy started, and excellent real-life examples of how others are living this out, this book will change your life if you let it.
