Written from his heart, Jason E. Royle, uses humor, life experiences, history, Scripture and what he did when hearing his beloved daughter kneeling in front of the Christmas as one would in church while she praying to Santa for Christmas presents. Each year many parents, like Jason, find the fantasy of Santa becoming more real to their children than the birth of our Lord and Savior difficult to correct. Thus the title, Jesus vs. Santa: Christmas Misunderstood. Neither a treatise nor debate –the reality that parents face this Jesus vs. Santa issue during the Yuletide season makes this a VERY Important read.
Though the focus is Christmas I encourage you to read this book throughout the year. For within the pages the author shares the steps parents can take to build a loving, carrying, and responsive relationship with their children. For just as we trust God because of the relationship and love he has for us, children who see their parents in the same way, will trust what they say.
Because author, Jason E. Royle shows us how to do this, I will share book with others. amzn.to/1U3vUbB
About the Author
Writing, for Jason, is a way to express the ongoing story of theology. With every book or article, he hopes readers get a sense of the complexity of God and the necessity of faith. Captivated by the spiritual component of life, Jason loves to read everything from the Greek classics to the Sunday comics. While serving as pastor of a congregation near Memphis, TN, Jason wrote a weekly column in a local newspaper called Sermon in a Nutshell and has had devotions published in The Secret Place, among others.
Jason holds a Master's in New Testament Theology from Johnson University and a Doctorate in Ministry from Sewanee: University of the South School of Theology. Today he lives with his beautiful wife and children in Schaefferstown, PA, where he serves as the pastor of St. Paul's United Church of Christ.
