Associate National Director Adrian Reynolds has written a new evangelistic Christmas book which is designed for churches to give away. Phil Topham introduces us to it.
It was a great joy to launch a Christmas film with Co:Mission at the end of November. But what evangelistic material are you planning to give away in your Christmas services this year?
Adrian Reynolds has written a superb little book this year called Christmas Jackpot, which opens up 2 Corinthians 8:9:
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.
Christmas Jackpot uses lots of illustrations and stories to explain what Christians believe about Christmas and why the Son of God left the riches of heaven to be born into poverty as a baby.
At the book’s heart is the gospel message using that verse from 2 Corinthians. Adrian explains why it matters and what it means for people living some 2,000 years after the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.
Commenting on his new book, Adrian said:
“We all love a rags-to-riches story, but the incredible thing about the Christmas message is that it’s precisely the opposite – a riches-to-rags story. Christmas Jackpot shows how Jesus gave up all his riches to come and live in poverty on earth.
“I hope this little book helps people to consider the true message of Christmas as we think about why Jesus came to earth and why it’s so important.”
The book is really short and can be easily read in one sitting. It ends with a prayer and an encouragement to ask questions of the Christian who gave it to the reader.
Copies are available from 10ofThose and there are generous discounts when you buy in bulk.
