Stanley E. Wiley’s new book, SAVE CHRISTMAS FOR CHRIST ALONE: 7 BIBLICAL MESSAGES AND HYMN TEXTS FOR A FAITH ADVENTURE WITH OUR SAVIOR, ($9.99, paperback, 9781498416825; $4.99, e-book, 9781498416832) aims to alter perspectives. The purpose of the seven messages (provided within the book) is to focus our observance of Christmas on Jesus, who was sent by His Father to show us the way to live Spirit-filled lives. Many can agree that it is becoming increasingly common to see the focus of the holidays shift to commercialism, particularly in the United States. The author answers with this book, which has a scriptural focus on Isaiah's prophecy of the birth of the child who reflects the "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:5-6).
“I invite the readers to understand the Christian life as a ‘faith adventure,’” states the author. “In living for Jesus, we learn true joy, hope, peace, and love. We learn that ‘God so loved the world’ that He sent His Son to show us the way to the gift of salvation from sin that He provided by crucifixion on the Roman cross. By submitting to His way, we too will live eternally.”
