Item Description...
Overview
Alex Gondola says that in our modern culture we sometimes "experience Christmas at its worst: overcommercialized, expensive, exhausting, nearly devoid of spiritual significance." In this collection of twenty cogent and inspiring sermons for Advent and Christmas, he reminds us of the key to putting the season in its proper perspective -- "Don't forget the child!" For it is only when we are drawn nearer to the child of Bethlehem, celebrating the simple beauties of the stable, that we can escape from the rush of the season into the divine light of saving grace heralded by the birth of God's Son. This volume is an exceptional source of inspiration for sermon preparation, but it's also excellent for personal devotions exploring the meaning of Advent and Christmas. It's a great Christmas gift!

Review of Inspirational sermons  Nov 29, 2006
As a lifelong participant and member of the United Church of Christ, I have listened to countless sermons. Alex Gondola has the gift of clarity while basing his inspiritional sermons on a solid foundation of intellectualism and historical fact. His words stay with you. I recommend "Don't Forget The child" for meaningful reading during the Advent season.
 
Don't Forget The Child  Nov 28, 2006
"Don't Forget The Child" are wonderful written sermons for advent and Christmas with inspirational parables that gave me a greater insight of the meaning of the advent season and the birth of Christ.
 
My Inspiration  Nov 18, 2006
I have just read the book "Don't Forget The Child" by Alex A. Gondola,Jr
and find his words inspirational giving me renewable meaning and faith.
With the advant season upon us we need to experience the true meaning of
Christmas. Alex was my pastor at Dennis Union Church and I too take part
in the Dennis Village Green Living Creche. It is truly the spirit of
Christmas.May we all read his sermons "Don't Forget the Child".
 
Advent Sermon Starters  Oct 31, 2006
Advent is always an exciting time for churches and pastors. But it is often difficult to remain fresh and informative. Dr. Gondola provides 20 sermon starters for both experienced and novice pastors. The sermons include traditional advent Sundays, Christmas Eve/Day, and Christmas tide. This book will help develop excellent sermons during this time of expectation.

Rex Fortney, Licensed Lay Pastor, UCC
 
Toward Cristian Growth  Oct 31, 2006
This book contains good, concrete illustrations that fortify and clarify the more abstract thought of the author.
Short, simply stated, but well written segments bulild to a point of understanding that take the reader forward toward being a more fully realized Christian
