You Really Want Christ With That Christmas?

Mary Beth is hosting a discussion of The First Christmas by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan over on RevGals. I recommend this one for a study in a group or by yourself.

Put the anti-imperial, anti-consumerist, pro-justice, pro-non-violent Christ back into your Christmas!

I posted on this book last year.

But what I didn't write about in that post is the importance of the narratives and their anti-empire, anti-consumerist message.
I may need to resurrect one of last year's sermons:

Is Jesus Your Personal (and Political) Lord and Savior?

Do we really want Christ to spoil our Christmas?

We may be forced to rethink what we value.
