Follow Santa's journey in this unique Christmas fable as he learns about Jesus' message of grace and discovers what it means for both the naughty and the nice.
When Santa Learned the Gospel is saved from preachiness by Camilleri’s gentle humour, the strength of the two main characters, the playful, unforced rhymes, and the stunning illustrations by Matthew Boutros. The message of Santa turns out to be a brilliant way to explain the goodness gospel, and the true gospel is described with clarity. This book is a wonderful antidote to the tidal wave of Santa that kids absorb every Christmas through school, the media, and at shopping malls. I wish it had been available when my children were younger, to read together after all those school concerts where we always had to listen to ‘Santa Claus is coming to town’, a song that Simon engages with in his book. This book will be greatly appreciated by parents who want their kids to grasp the difference between Santa’s message and the gospel. I can imagine it becoming a family favourite that’s read every year, as well as a widely used evangelistic and teaching resource for Sunday Schools, kids’ clubs, and Scripture classes.
This is an attractive, imaginative, and effective presentation of the gospel for children. It is quirky: Santa Claus converted by an elf is not a common idea! But it gets its message across clearly: both the nice and naughty are only saved by Christ’s death on the cross. Thank you Simon.
As a father of four young children, I’m thankful for Simon’s innovative book and I trust it will lift their eyes to the wonder and truth of Jesus. Wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated this is bound to add some sparkle to your Christmas celebrations.
This is a great little rhyming book all about the gospel. Santa is converted to Christ after thinking through the gospel taught him by an elf! Its real strength is taking us with Santa as he compares the message he’s heard with the message he teaches. This engaging approach will help children (and others!) not just hear the gospel message but to ponder it personally. Highly recommended.
This delightfully crafted and heart-warming tale of how Santa learned the truth about Jesus, will surely inspire children the world over. Filled with eloquently chosen pros by author Simon Camilleri and magnificent artwork by illustrator Matthew Boutros, “When Santa learned the Gospel” will certainly captivate the imagination, and is destined to become one of only a handful of all-time Christmas Classics.
