Because of Bethlehem (with Bonus Content): Love Is Born, Hope Is Here Kindle Edition
For some, Christmas is a time of excitement, celebration, and quality time with loved ones. For others, it's full of loneliness, grief, and loss. Join New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado as he unwraps the enduring promises of Christmas and discovers a lifetime of hope, all because of one baby born in Bethlehem.
It's easy to lose sight of the remarkable story of Christmas. We forget that a king ordered a census, Joseph was forced to travel, Mary bounced on a donkey's back, the hotel was full, the hour was late, and the event was one big hassle. Yet, out of that hassle, hope was born.
In Because of Bethlehem, Max invites us to look at the Christmas story from a different perspective. He reminds us that Christmas is about more than a pretty tree with presents piled up underneath it. Christmas begins what Easter celebrates: the child in the cradle who goes on to become the King on the cross. Because of Bethlehem, we have a place on earth and a Savior in heaven.
In the midst of your hectic Christmas season, Max will give you the encouragement, advice, and tools you need to:
- Rekindle your connection to the Christ of Christmas
- Receive the promises of the Christmas season
- Lay down your endless Christmas to-do list and trust what Jesus has already done
- Heal your heartache by embracing the God who is always near you, always for you, and always with you
Each copy of Because of Bethlehem will also include an Advent Devotional Guide designed to help you reflect on the miracle of Christ's birth and the promise of his return.
As you curl up in a comfortable spot and take a closer look at the wild and wonderful story of Bethlehem, may you find enduring faith for all seasons of your life. No matter what this season holds for you, rest in the truth that the promise of Christmas has the power to bring you a lifetime of hope and healing.

This book was a quick read, making it a benefit during one of the more busier times of the year. I found the stories easy to digest, often completing a chapters while waiting in line at the grocery store or on my lunch break at work. As a Christian, I found the themes fairly elementary. Lucado added a lot of personal anecdotes, which made him more relatable to the reader. But if I am honest, I really didn't have any big aha! moments with this book. It was a fun read for the Christmas season that reminded me of things I already knew.
Proverbs 31 Ministries motto goes something like: Your life may be crazy, but your Bible study doesn't have to be. I think this study was a good example of that. It's as light read about an important topic that reminds the reader of the reason for the season.
Recommendation: I think this book would be a good selection for someone young in their Christian walk or for someone who doesn't have much time to delve deeply into a Bible study.
Until next time ... Read on!
Regardless of whether I purchase a book, borrow a book, or am gifted one, my ultimate goal is to be honest, fair, and constructive. I hope you've found this review helpful.
An Angel’s Story, a bonus at the end of the book, was worth the price all on its own. I am tired of the Holiday season but so appreciative of Christmas and the wee little Lamb born in a manger.
His style is very appealing, and easy to read and understand.
He explains clearly why Christ came. "Each one of us has a sin nature. God entered the world to take it away. God came to save us from ourselves.
The angel said: He save His people from their sins. Matt 1.20-21]"
"What started in a Bethlehem cradle culminated on a Jerusalem cross.
Jesus not only did a work for us, He did a work IN us,"
" Chaos cannot keep Christ from His world.
God uses the struggle to accomplish His will.
God holds it all together. He will hold it together for you, too."
These brief quotes may give you enough of an insight to know this is excellent teaching indeed.
