The I AM Is Christmas provides an easy way for individuals as well as entire families to focus in on what the season really means, to reflect on God’s grace through the birth of Jesus who lived and died to bring us life.
Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) December 04, 2014
CrossBooks is pleased to announce the nationwide release of The I AM Is Christmas by J. Lindsay Sadler. A small yet powerful collection of seasonal reflections, it shows how the story of Christ’s birth in the gospels of Matthew and Luke mirror the “I AM” statements in the gospel of John to further illuminate the deity of Jesus.
Sadler, a veteran pastor, clearly connects each aspect of the nativity account to the defining words of Jesus (“I AM the light of the world,” “I AM the way, the truth, and the life,” “I AM the true vine,” etc.) spoken later in His ministry. Every chapter features “Reflection” questions as well to point readers back to the central theme that Jesus is God and the true heart of the Christmas season.
“These ‘I AMs’ can guide us not only through the season of thankfulness and joyful giving but also through the entire year,” Sadler said. “We need to be reminded that Jesus is the only true God—all sufficient and all satisfying. He is, as it says in the gospels, the “indescribable,” “unspeakable,” “inexpressible” gift to us all.”
Paul Mikos, publisher at CrossBooks for LifeWay Christian Resources, said, “The I AM Is Christmas provides an easy way for individuals as well as entire families to focus in on what the season really means, to reflect on God’s grace through the birth of Jesus who lived and died to bring us life. We’re excited for others to experience Sadler’s inspiring view of Christmas.”
