Item Description...
Take a look at Christmas from alternative angles.

Using an approach similar to his other "BackSide" books, Kalas crafts new insights into the scriptures of the Christmas story by looking at them from the "back side" --

...taking unique starting points...creative re-telling from different views...examining the story through new "lenses"...or looking through the eyes of a not-so-familiar character.

Book session titles include:

* The Scandal of Christmas
* Three Votes for an Early Christmas
* Christmas Comes to a Back Fence
* How the Government Helped the First Christmas Happen
* Celebrating Christmas in a Hotel
* Christmas Comes to a Church
* Christmas and the Impossible Dream

Publishers Description
Popular and beloved author J. Ellsworth Kalas presents new insight into the biblical story of Christmas. Kalas approaches the season through the "back side"--through a unique starting point, a creative retelling, a new "lens," or the eyes of a minor character. Kalas's creative approach both clarifies basic teachings and introduces new possibilities of meaning, even for those who are most familiar with the Christmas story. Enriched with contemporary illustrations and personal experiences, this volume will provide new perspectives.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Useful Guide for Advent Bible Study  Jan 11, 2007
J. Ellsworth Kalas has a knack for approaching familiar Scriptures "from the backside" in order to grab the attention of readers and small group participants. His Christmas From the Back Side is no acception. We used it in our church for a four-week book study on Wednesday nights during Advent. It invites readers to use their imagination and life experiences to think about major and minor characters, their motives, reactions, and circumstances. It brings home the underlying messages in a new way.
Excellent  Jan 10, 2007
My study group found this book to be helpful and enriching. We used it as an Advent study. Kalas has an unique way of looking at Scripture from another angle. We have used several of J. Ellsworth Kalas' books in our study group. Kalas has a signature question in every study guide: What insights did you receive from this chapter? This gives each member of the group the opportunity to share personally. His work challenges us to look a little further in God's message.
