Christmas is a busy time. It can be difficult for people to step back from the decorating, baking, shopping, wrapping, and visiting, and remember the reason we have a Christmas celebration at all. Devotionals can be a wonderful way to give yourself a quick reminder of the real meaning of Christmas, in a few minutes every day.
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Ace Collins is more than a basic devotional book. In addition to having quality reflections on Jesus, each day there is also a look at the story behind a Christmas hymn, as well as a recipe. Some of the recipes are for food, and some are for gifts you can give to pamper the people you love.
The daily devotions were well written, the song studies are very interesting, and the recipes seem nice (I didn't actually try any of them). I read through quite a few days in quick succession in order to write a review, and I found the content to be wonderful.
I did think it would be really cool if there was a CD to go along with the book, with each day's hymn. I am sure I could just make my own, but it would be a cool tie-in item, especially if you were giving this as a Christmas gift.
I was given a free copy of this book to facilitate writing an honest review. All opinions are my own.
