Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol is second only to the nativity story itself when it comes to public consciousness. Just as Jesus Christ changed the world on the night of his birth, so Ebenezer Scrooge changes during a single night of supernatural visitations.
In Keeping Christmas, novelist and Dickens enthusiast Allison Pittman offers twenty-five readings for advent, seamlessly bringing together the Word of God and the words of A Christmas Carol. This contemplative, entertaining book is the perfect companion for those dark winter nights as we eagerly anticipate the coming celebration of Christmas when, like Scrooge, we are given the gift of reflection, repentance, and life anew.
Keeping Christmas is sure to become a treasured family tradition-much like the reading or viewing of A Christmas Carol.
