Description

Scandal. Controversy. Massacres. Mystery... Christmas?

This is a book about the real Christmas; the one that has been lost by being turned into a children's nativity play. The one that's been buried under made-up details about donkeys and innkeepers and kings.

And this is a book about why what really happened at Christmas really matters today—about how these amazing events can transform people's lives and futures.

Short, funny, friendly and easy-to-read, Christmas Uncut retells the Christmas story, and explains the gospel message as it does so. Perfect for giving away to unbelieving family and friends, whether they think they know the Christmas story, or know that they don't; and ideal for giving away at the end of Christmas church events.

We have developed some Christmas Uncut themed promotional materials for evangelistic events. They are free to download and can be found under the 'Look-Inside' link on the left.

Christmas Uncut

Dave McDonald, Macarisms, December 12th 2012

This little book gets us beyond the commercialism and hype, the fiction and the fantasy, to the true message of the historical Christmas. Each chapter is divided into two parts: (1) what really happened, (2) why it really matters.... continue reading

“nice read”

(Review written for 'Christmas Uncut')

Was given this a few years ago but only got round to reading it recently. Thought this was great but it is probably better to say "thankfully" rather than "luckily" (p5).

“Christmas with a shock factor”

(Review written for 'Christmas Uncut')

A worthy re-telling of the Christmas story which lent itself perfectly to our youth-led service. Bonus: buy in bulk and give away at the end!

“Excellent”

(Review written for 'Christmas Uncut')

This would be a fantastic book for giving to someone either just starting out on their journey with God or as a conversation opener with someone who perhaps has been taking an interest in God but isn't sure yet. Well written, at times humorous and eye-opening. I would recommend this to everyone.

“excellent”

(Review written for 'Christmas Uncut')

I've been a Christian for nearly 40 years and this little booklet knocked my socks off! LOVED it. I am ordering 10 to share immediately!

“simple.clear and easy to read”

(Review written for 'Christmas Uncut')

I bought this book for my work colleagues. I wanted something that would be relevant and would explain the gospel message clearly too. I wasn't disappointed with this. It was a down to earth, and amusing at times but balanced with serious and helpful explanations of the Christmas story. i would definitely recommend it as a useful evangelistic tool.

“Informative, thought-provoking, no nonsense”

Written in a chatty, approachable style, Christmas Uncut is easy to read, for Christians and non-Christians alike. No jargon, just straight-forward explanations of what really happened and why the Christmas story really matters. I would not be uncomfortable giving this to a non-Christian, and if they reject the challenge it contains, at least they can't say they didn't understand.

“Grabs the attention”

(Review written for 'Christmas Uncut')

At Easter and Christmas I look for small books(lets) and enclose with a card for the season to the neighbours, and give one to people who have shown a small kindness (shopkeepers, etc) and have never had one returned or refused. This year I have purchased 20 "Christmas Uncut" for the same outreach purpose and have had good comments from people who have received them. I think the way it is written grabs the attention.

“Brill easy read but good. ”

(Review written for 'Christmas Uncut')

I really liked this book as I was looking for something non judgemental to use as gospel outreach. Nativity plays are of interest to parents, grabdparents and in general a source of laughter, We all have funny stories to tell ! From this common theme the author brings out quite deep teaching and theology in an easy attractive way. i would think it is really good to hand to those folk you are not sure quite where they stand. I sent for a load of christmas outreach and this is by far the best!

“helpful evangelistic tool”

Good content. Nice tone - amusing at first, but dealing with serious issues appropriately. Excellent price for bulk give away (£1 each for 100). Great to make available to Christians to use with family, friends, neighbours etc.
