Nothing beats the feeling of giving, or receiving, the perfect gift.

The most meaningful gifts we receive make us feel known, loved and valued. And when we give a gift like that, it's like we're putting ourselves in our present. And at Christmas, that's exactly what God did.

This light-hearted and lively book explores how our gift-giving traditions show us a glimpse of a giving God. Evangelist Glen Scrivener helps readers to celebrate the gift of life in a world brimming with beauty, before taking us to John 3:16 to unwrap the Christmas gift that can give us what we've always wanted, and what we really need.

This book makes an ideal gift for non-Christian friends and family, and is cheap enough for churches to buy to give out at services this December (bulk deals available). An exciting tie-in video made by Glen and the team at Speak Life will also be available for churches and individuals to use in their evangelism.

Reading 'The Gift' really did affect my facial expressions! There was a wry smile as the Author seemed to have been tracking my Christmases down the years. How did he know? Then there was a shake of the head as the core problem of the bad bits was diagnosed and laid bare, as well as an intake of breath as I saw that Christmas really did give me what I'd always wanted. It's a thrilling, deeply perceptive book, I thoroughly recommend it.

In this crisp, clear and brightly written introduction to Christianity, Glen shows how we are made to receive gifts and why that turns out to be wonderful news when we encounter the Giver.

The gospel is wrapped up in Glen’s humble and winsome words. He shows us how our give-and-take Christmas traditions can point us to the gracious Giver. This is worth sharing with family and friends
