What others are saying...
Many bemoan the dreadful loss of Christmas in our culture. Few tell us how to be an agent for change. Doug Dauntless gives us specific, practical, creative ways to get the meaning out. Join me in incorporating some of them into my Christmas season.

At a time when religion, especially Christianity, is being stripped from the public arena, Dauntless' 101 Ways is sorely needed. These innovative, simple and inexpensive ideas should prompt all Christians to reclaim one of the most important celebrations of all time—when "the Word became flesh and dwelt among us" (John 1:14).

I strongly believe in the real reason for the season, Jesus! And Doug's book is a sterling example of how to 'bring back to life' (the meaning, by the way, of 'revive') Christmas. In a day when some are attempting to squelch Christmas and reduce it to 'winter celebrations,' this book refreshes us with what many of us grew up with when we were children, the wonderful celebration of Christmas! I hope you send for Doug's book and in addition to that, put into practice what it recommends.
I heartily recommend this book to everyone! My only regrets are that I didn't read it sooner and that Christmas is come and gone. I can't wait until next Christmas to share it with my friends and those who I meet. The next book you read should be Reviving the True Meaning of Christmas. It'll be a journey you're glad you traveled on!

If you want simple and very practical ways to celebrate the greatest season of the year, this is just for you. Doug Dauntless' book focuses on working out Christmas in real life with your family. I was so excited about this beautiful little book, we bought ten and kept them near the front door to give out as gifts (especially for those who had unexpectedly dropped by with presents for our family). We went through them like hotcakes, but I refused to give up the last copy.

Doug Dauntless captures the true spirit of Christmas in this book. These simple yet insightful suggestions are a refreshing contrast to the world's commercialized view of this precious holiday. Hallelujah! Someone gets it!
