Born on Christmas Day, Brad Wilcox has always had a special love for Christmas. Everyone knows that the season has become commercialized and saturated by the demands of political correctness. But, as Brad writes, "No matter how many try to take Christ out of Christmas . . . it will always and forever be about the Messiah in a manger."

Because of the Messiah in a manger, we can feel and share His pure love. Because of Him, we have access to grace, immortality, and eternal life. Because of the Messiah in a manger, we follow the star, hear the angels sing, and celebrate the Light of the World at Christmas and always.

This warm, conversational book will enhance your celebration of the Christmas season as you discover ways Christ began to fulfill His divine mission right from the moment of His humble birth. Whether a gift to a loved one or to yourself, this is the perfect read to curl up by the fire and embrace the Christmas spirit. Join with shepherds, wise men, angels, and other witnesses throughout the ages who have testified of the Christ in cradle, the Messiah in a manger.

Such an amazing book! I loved every minute of it. You really made me think about all the little things I’ve taken for granted for so long and take a other look at the symbolism of all things Christmas. Happy Birthday!!

Brad Wilcox does it again!

I just listened to this audio book on Deseret Bookshelf (which I have enjoyed very much!). I found it insightful and inspiring and real. This is a book I will read or listen to each Christmas season to come. Filled with stories of real people and their experiences resulting from their faith in and covenants made with the Lord Jesus Christ. It's a great read-aloud book. I played the section about the poinsettia to my 10-year old granddaughter. She asked for more. The whole family will enjoy it!!

An Inspiring Christmas Lesson!

I’ve loved Brad Wilcox’s books ever since I started reading some of the other material he’s produced. This book is insightful about what the Savior did for us and how Christmas should be so important, not just as the holiday itself, but through the spirit it brings and should permeate our lives always. Along with gospel truths, Brad includes cheerful Christmastime stories and images that brings the warmth of the chilly season to your heart.

A must read for every December
