11 Christmas Books Everyone Should Read

Dec 4, 2014

I recently posted a list of "11 Novels Every Christian Should Read", taking a page from two of my favorite sites - George Grant's Eleventary (hence, 11 novels) and FilmFisher (which inspired the undefended nature of my list).  Now, understanding that we will all run out of time before we will run out of books to read, allow me to add more book suggestions.

Given that the Advent season is upon us, and Christmas is just a few weeks away, here are some good reads for this most wonderful time of the year!

1.A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
2.Letters from Father Christmas by J.R.R. Tolkien
3.The Nutcracker by E.T.A. Hoffman
4.Christmas Spirit by George Grant and Gregory Wilbur
5.The Gospels of St. Matthew, St. Luke, and St. John
6.A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas
7.God Is in the Manger by Deitrich Bonhoeffer
8.On the Incarnation by St. Athanasius
9.The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson
10.The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
11.The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry
12.Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
13.The Man Born to be King by Dorothy Sayers
14.The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen
15.The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding by Agatha Christie

"Wait!," you may say, "Why are there fifteen books on this list of eleven?"  Good question.  Undefended!
