Are you fed up with how consumerism has stolen the soul of Christmas? This year, take a stand! Join the growing groundswell of Christ-followers who are choosing to making Christmas what it should be—a joyous celebration of Jesus' birth, not a retail circus. Advent Conspiracy invites individuals, families, groups, and entire churches to substitute compassion for consumerism by practicing four simple but powerful, countercultural concepts: Worship Fully—because Christmas begins and ends with Jesus! Spend Less—and free your resources for things that truly matter. Give More—of your presence: your hands, your words, your time, your heart. Love All—the poor, the forgotten, the marginalized, and the sick in ways that make a difference.

    " life changing challenge for anyone searching for something deeper during the chaos of the consumer driven Christmas season "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/14/2014

    " This book spoke to me about relational giving versus the consumerism that has become Christmas. It was very apropos for this time of the year and provoked my thinking about how I personally celebrate Christmas. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharyn L. | 12/18/2013

    " Quick read. Good for a bible study group. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Muender | 12/13/2013

    " It was good to be reminded that the giving of self is better than the giving of stuff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brenda Schenck | 12/7/2013

    " Bleh. I'm taking away from it what I liked and forgetting the rest. Plus, the Kindle version is not good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 11/21/2013

    " This was a quick read (about 100 pages, the rest is the discussion guide). My wife and I are currently leading a bible study on the Advent Conspiracy and it has been eye-opening and rewarding. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 11/19/2013

    " I viewed the Advent Conspiracy videos at church and online. That fed my curiosity to check out AC. I read this book and liked it. It's a reminder of the reason for the season and the message -worship fully, spend less, give more, etc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Dietz | 11/14/2013

    " A MUST READ to put our lives back into perspective!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 8/7/2013

    " For anyone looking for a way to navigate the consumer-driven nature of the "holiday" season, I'd recommend this book. Thought-provoking at the very least, even if you do not buy into the Advent Conspiracy mentality. Excellent for book club discussion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 6/17/2013

    " A call to resist the commercialization of Christmas but to spend more relationally and for the good of those in greater need. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 6/8/2013

    " Nothing more than a typical rehashing of all sermons given around this time. There is nothing new or fresh presented here. However, it is always good to be reminded of what Christmas is supposed to be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 3/31/2013

    " It really strengthened my resolve to make presents a smaller part of Christmas while making Christ the center. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camille Breckenridge | 1/30/2013

    " This idea is radical in our current way of thinking. It is something for Christians to do together and start early in the year to share the true reason for Christmas : God's precious gift, Jesus Christ, Savior of the world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave McNeely | 12/25/2012

    " I would probably give this book a "5" for the general ideas, but only about a "2" for the actual content within the book. I'll be generous and err on the side of ideas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 12/6/2012

    " It makes you rethink the way we celebrate christmas and how we could come closer to the true meaning of the season. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Em | 12/4/2012

    " Great reminder of the true meaning of Christmas. Looking forward to discussing this with my small group. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam Lonberg | 11/23/2012

    " So simply written, it is a call to change our Christmas worship back to worshiping He who gave it all for us. Very inspiring. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Caroline Fontenot | 8/10/2012

    " Reading the website was more exciting than reading the book. But the Advent Conspiracy itself is valid and worth taking a look at! Just don't waste your time with a repetitive 100 pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/24/2012

    " I'm rating the book three stars, not the underlying premise of Advent Conspiracy, which would rank five stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott Ray | 2/18/2012

    " Very easy read so not to late to read it and make adjustments to how we celebrate Christmas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barry Cooper | 2/1/2012

    " A very good, but challenging read. It really makes me rethink the Advent season and our approach. "
