Books for Christmas Gifts

The Annotated Christmas Carol

by Charles Dickens, edited with notes and an introduction by Michael Patrick Hearn

This beautiful edition of Dickens's A Christmas Carol includes wonderful illustrations and extensive commentary on the text, plus a fine introduction to Dickens and the writing of A Christmas Carol. If you love this classic story, I'd urge you to treat yourself to this book. It would also make a wonderful Christmas present for the person who has everything except this fine volume.

A Christmas Carol

The Christmas classic read by one of the finest readers in the world. Jim Dale narrated the Harry Potter series.

Can We Trust the Gospels? Investigating the Reliability of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John

by Mark D. Roberts

Okay, okay, this is a bit of shameless self-promotion. But I think this book would be a fine gift for anybody who might wonder about the trustworthiness of the Gospels. Especially good for high school and college students.
