Perfectly timed for the Christmas season, Joy to the World brings an understanding of the importance of this special time of year that has not be seen before. Written by New York Times bestselling author Scott Hahn and illustrated by #1 New York Times Best Selling illustrator Timeless Jones, this awe-inspiring look into the real story behind Christmas is one you'll never forget.
Hahn delves into Scripture and early Church teachings, helping us understand why this season has been celebrated since antiquity, while making it fresh and new again. In Joy to the World we are taken through a journey into a family story - that of a father, mother and child, embracing the wonder of their distinct relationships as well as how they work together harmoniously. We also come to see why Christmas is important not only spiritually but culturally as well.
Bringing back joy for generations to come, Joy to the World is available now in hardcover at all major retailers, allowing us all to experience anew the true reason for celebrating this festive time of year.
