Item Description...
Overview
For many people, especially children, Christmas is a favorite time of year -- we're surrounded by the marvelous sights of stores and houses covered with brightly colored decorations, we hear the pleasant sounds of carols filling the air, and we gather with family and friends to enjoy gift-giving and sumptuous food. But all this is just a reminder of the greatest gift of all -- the blessed birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. In this volume, a renowned pastor and teacher shares 16 messages that proclaim with a child's wide-eyed wonder the joyous news of the coming of God's Son. William Powell Tuck helps us see the true meaning of the season by putting our holiday celebrations in the context of the unique mystery of the incarnation, leading us to a greater appreciation of the sensory delights that make Christmas "the most wonderful time of the year." This book will be a treasured sermon preparation resource for pastors, as well as a source of inspiration for personal meditation or small group studies.

CHRISTMAS IS FOR THE YOUNG...WHATEVER YOUR AGE  Nov 20, 2007
CHRISTMAS IS FOR THE YOUNG...WHATEVER THEIR AGE
by William Powell Tuck

REVIEW BY - Bruce Gourley


A long-time pastor and seminary professor, Tuck has "always loved the Advent and Christmas season." A timely arrival, this volume from CSS Publishing is a compilation of "16 Christmas Sermon Stories" intended to be "a source of inspiration for personal meditation or small group studies." Whereas Christmas day has long been a special time for Christians at large, many Baptists in recent years have come to a greater appreciation of the larger Advent season. Tuck helps the reader personally engage in the Advent and Christmas season, pointing the way to the simplicity and mystery of the incarnation, drawing upon the scriptures and imagination to invoke the true meaning of the the holiday celebration. In the midst of the busyness that marks the holidays, it is worth taking the time to read Christmas is for the Young.

ALSO A Review By: Dr. John Robert McFarland Iron Mountain, MI, November, 05 2007
CHRISTMAS IS FOR THE YOUNG... WHATEVER THEIR AGE. By William Powell Tuck, APC. Lima, Ohio: CSS Publishing Company, Inc. 2007. Paperback. 172 pp. $15.95.

Christmas preaching is a challenge. Everybody who wanders in is full of eggnog, fatigued by the constant stereophonic exploits of The Little Drummer Boy, and already knows the story, about how Rudolph red-nosed the three wise guys from Orientar to the stable where the shepherds washed their sox by night. And despite their extensive scriptural knowledge, or perhaps because of it, half the people in the pews you won't see again for six months, if that soon.

Bill Tuck says he has always loved that challenge [7]. That is a good thing for those of us who face the challenge but are not sure how to preach the same old message with new joy. Get Christmas is for the Young... Whatever Their Age and your Christmas preaching is set until retirement, or at least sixteen years, which is the number of sermons in this book.

It is clear that Bill Tuck loves not just preaching about Christmas, but Christmas itself. He is himself a good example of remaining young for Christmas, regardless of age. These sermons do not, however, see life through nostalgia-misted red and green bubble lights. They face head-on the difficult questions and problems Christmas calls forth, like "Can There Be Peace on Earth? [Chapter 13] and "the slaughter of the innocents" in "Christmas and the Beast" [Chapter 12], and Mary's revolutionary Gospel [Chapter 4].

Other sermons deal with the music, gifts, and sounds of Christmas, readiness for Christmas, Joseph's disturbing dream, the angels' song, and the mystery of Bethlehem. Since I have always had a problem with receiving gifts, I especially appreciated the insights of "Christmas Gifts" [Chapter 14].

There are "pointers" on every page. [Since people remember the so-called illustrations more than the so-called points of a sermon, I refer to the illustrations as pointers.] I thought I had heard, and used, every sermon pointer ever uttered in the English-speaking pulpit, but not so. Bill's pointers are new and fresh. I especially enjoyed the little girl in the impromptu family nativity play who played all three wise men and brought "gold, circumstances, and mud." [159]

Tuck is a scholar. He knows the Scriptures and their problems. He knows the theological issues of incarnation. However, you hear the scholarship that under girds these sermons, from Loren Eisley to Paul Tillich, only in the footnotes. These are sermons for any congregation. Anyone can read or hear these words with profit.

The author, as retired as he is ever likely to be, is a distinguished pastor, a renegade Baptist [Is that redundant?], past-president of APC, a sometime preaching professor, and the author of a dozen other books.

Be sure to ask Santa for this book. If you have been a good boy or girl, you will get it. [Oops. That's from a different book.] Then preach these sermons. It's not stealing, just accepting a Christmas gift from a master preacher who has been around the pulpit a time or two but still finds it exciting to look for what will show up on the next trip.

Rev. Dr. John Robert McFarland, FAPC, retired from The Illinois Great Rivers Conference of The United Methodist Church and living in Iron Mountain, MI, where he is Theologian in Residence at the Moose & Bear Coffee and Deerskinning Emporium.
