11 Christmas Books Everyone Should Read


Brian Phillips at the Circe Institute Blog recently published “11 Christmas Books Everyone Should Read.” I have already read a few of them, but wanting to get a little more of the spirit of Christmas, I have decided to pick a couple off the list and read them this year. Maybe you will consider doing the same. Here is his list; he gets so excited that his list of 11 becomes a list of 15. It is loaded with several obvious selections, some traditional classics, and a few fresh choices.

1. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
2. Letters from Father Christmas by J.R.R. Tolkien
3. The Nutcracker by E.T.A. Hoffman
4. Christmas Spirit by George Grant and Gregory Wilbur
5. The Gospels of St. Matthew, St. Luke, and St. John
6. A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas
7. God Is in the Manger by Deitrich Bonhoeffer
8. On the Incarnation by St. Athanasius
9. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson
10. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
11. The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry
12. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
13. The Man Born to be King by Dorothy Sayers
14. The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen
15. The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding by Agatha Christie
