Are You Ready for Christmas?



If you’re like me you haven’t begun to think about all of the festivities related to the Christmas holiday season. But my friend Ray Rhodes has given a good reason to begin making preparations for the celebration of Christmas with our families. Ray has authored a new book titled: Family Worship for the Christmas Season which is being published by Solid Ground Christian Books. I used an earlier version of this material to supplement family worship with my family last year and I found the material to be excellent. I’ve already ordered copies for the families in the church where I pastor and I encourage others to order multiple copies as well. SGCB is running a great pre-publication special now, with even more discounts available when purchasing multiple copies.

Ray is a trusted friend and I highly recommend this book and his speaking ministry to you. Ray has spoken several times at WBBC and he has always been a blessing. But don’t take my word for it, others greater than I have commended both Ray and this book.

“In a day when having regular family worship is no longer a foregone conclusion (even among conservative Evangelicals), Ray Rhodes provides a wonderful impetus to start: a month of clear, biblical, practical devotions celebrating the birth of King Jesus. Hopefully, those who begin this Christmas using this excellent resource will continue gathering daily at the family altar throughout the coming year.” – David W. Bailey, Ph.D., Author – Speaking the Truth in Love: The Life and Legacy of Roger Nicole

“Ray Rhodes has written a wonderfully creative book on family worship for the Christmas season. For a father or mother to take their children through these precious truths would create a fond memory that the children would have for the rest of their life. The book is doctrinally sound, well written, and greatly honoring to our Lord. I’m going to order three copies right now!” – Martha Peace, Biblical Counselor and author of The Excellent Wife

“The Christmas season is a great time for daily family worship. If you’ve never enjoyed family worship on a consistent basis, there’s no better time to start. Whether your family already enjoys the biblical and historic Christian practice of family worship or you’re just beginning, consider using Ray Rhodes’ engaging Family Worship for the Christmas Season this December.” – Dr. Donald S. Whitney , author of Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian Life and Family Worship: In the Bible, in History, and in Your Home.

“Author and speaker Ray Rhodes gives parents some expert help with these insightful and truth-filled devotional exercises for family worship during the Christmas season. Make December different this year by trying them out with your family. This book can make a significant difference in your family’s understanding of the incarnation.” – Jim Elliff, Christian Communicators Worldwide

“It is rare to find solid Family Worship resources in our day, let alone one for the advent season. Ray Rhodes has provided an outstanding tool for busy fathers during this opportune time of year. May God powerfully use it in the godly instruction of our families and for the generations to come!” – Pastor Jerry Marcellino, author of Rediscovering the Lost Treasure of Family Worship.

“The Incarnation of Jesus Christ is one of the most important events in the history of the world. Too many years families get so tangled in the trappings of Christmas, however, that they miss its true wonder. Ray Rhodes has written a wonderful book that elegantly encourages and practically helps families draw near to each another as they draw near to the Lord in celebrating his birth. I highly recommend it.” – John Crotts, pastor and author of Mighty Men: the Starter’s Guide to Leading Your Family, Craftsmen: Christ-centered Proverbs for Men, and co-author with Martha Peace of Tying the Knot Tighter.
