Christmas is a special time of year. Families gather for fancy feasts and presents are exchanged. But the true meaning of the holiday does not come wrapped in brightly colored paper and bows. The real gift of Christmas is the birth of Jesus; the celebration is honoring this miracle with those whom we love.
In Follow the Star, Bishop T. D. Jakes shares the Christmas stories that touched his heart and shaped his life. He colorfully recounts childhood memories and deeply personal experiences that illuminate the significance of the season: family stories about the worst of times, when they found the spirit of Christmas despite poverty and hardship; stories about the best of times, and the need to slow down and appreciate the real gifts of fellowship, love-and God. Bishop Jakes also includes biblical stories that magnify the relevance of this blessed day, and with his unique insight, he lights the way to a deeper understanding of what Christmas is all about.
Inspiring, heartwarming, and joyful, Follow the Star will be a treasured collection of wisdom and warmth this Christmas and for years to come.
