Tired of the consumerism that has come to define Christmas? Advent Conspiracy invites families, home groups, and churches to restore the heart of the Holiday. Unwrapping four simple but powerful concepts, this stirring book, complete with study guide, invites you to celebrate Jesus' birth more meaningfully by giving relationally to family, friends, and the less fortunate.

Description:
Rick McKinley and Chris Seay know they’re not the only ones who are tired of how consumerism has stolen the soul of Christmas. In Advent Conspiracy, they invite individuals, families, home groups, and entire churches to join the groundswell of Christ-followers who choose to make Christmas what it should be—a joyous celebration of Jesus’ birth that enriches their hearts and the world around them, not a retail circus that depletes their pocketbooks and defeats their spirits. Through this engaging, four-session DVD curriculum and stand-alone book complete with study guide, Advent Conspiracy shows how readers can substitute compassion for consumption by practicing four simple but powerful, countercultural concepts:
1) Worship Fully—because Christmas begins and ends with Jesus!
2) Spend Less—and free up resources for things that truly matter
3) Give More—presence: helping hands, healing words, humble hearts
4) Love All—the poor, the forgotten, the marginalized, the sick, in ways that make a difference.

Christmas can still change the world when people, like Jesus, give what matters most—their presence.
