My Favorite Christian Christmas Books and Bibles for Families

December 3, 2013 7 Comments »

Looking to add a few new books to your family library? Whether you want to add a couple of new Christmas books that will become life-long favorites, or if you want to be able to look at your Bible in a different way I have 4 books that you will definitely want to check out.

Christian Christmas Books

The First Christmas NightI love the variety of books that depict the birth of Jesus, there are so many great books that tell the Christmas story in their own way. First Christmas Night by Keith Christopher and illustrated by Christine Kornacki tells the story of the sweet baby in a manger, but not only through words. The beautiful images in this book come to life, so much so that Miss A asked if they were photographs. The book is simple enough for young children to understand and yet timeless, lending itself to be read year after year.

Another book that has cemented a place in our Christmas family traditions is The Sparkle Box: A Gift with the Power to Change Christmas by Jill Hardie.

If my job wasn’t to describe this book to you, I may be speechless. The story in this book is one that we have been talking about the past few months. Helping others and placing their needs before our own.

This book had moments that touched my heart so deeply that I was moved to *almost tears. I loved that Lil’ C {age 3} was following along with the story and that it enhances our desire to teach our children to have a servant heart. I won’t spoil the story, but the Sparkle Box we got from our book is now sitting on our fireplace mantle and will reappear each year without a doubt. Perhaps it can spark a new tradition in your family, too.

Christian Family Bible

CEB Study BibleThe Common English Bible released its new Study Bible on October 1. Because the CEB made the top ten translation list and has held it’s place, the’ve now introduced their Study Bible. The CEB Study Bible is a great Bible for families with children of all ages. This Bible includes historically-based notes, 210 sidebar articles, parallel verses, maps by National Geographic and five articles written by Christian scholars.

Not only does this Bible help family members understand the words of the Bible, but it also allows thought provoking discussion giving our faith feet and helping our children really understand the Word of God as they learn and grow and build their own relationship with God.
