In an era when Christmas is often portrayed as little more than a celebration of consumerism, many Christians are searching for a way to offer a deeper appreciation of the holiday to their children and family. New York Times Best Selling Author W. Cleon Skousen's The Real Story of Christmas reconnects the reader with what Christmas is supposed to be about: peace, goodwill, and the story of Jesus Christ. Skousen breathes new life into the Nativity story, with ample political and historical context.

I loved this book! Mark Deakins is a strong orator and reads the text so you can understand it. It's nice to get the real story behind why Christmas is celebrated and how it should be remembered. One of the nice things about this book is that it is only a little over half an hour-anyone can take the time to listen to it! I plan on listening to it repeatedly and recommending it to family and friends!

Corey M. Snow does a great job at narrating the stories appearing in this book. Although it starts out a little wooden-sounding, you quickly get in to what the FBI had to deal with when trying to "clean up" America! Snow is able to bring these stories to life!
