Christmas - Philosophy for Everyone: Better Than a Lump of CoalFörfattare: Stephen Nissenbaum, Fritz Allhoff, Scott C. Lowe Uppläsare: Gregory Itzin Ljudbok
Some wise men, a stable, a few sheep, and a young virgin giving birth to the mortal son of a prefect God: Christmas is one of Christianitys holiest days, and yet it is also a major pagan festival, a secular, cultural celebration, and a commercial event of epic proportions.
As consumerism runs rife, have we lost sight of its very essence? Is celebrating Christmas really a good idea? From elves and Ebenezer Scrooge, to the culture wars and virgin birth, Christmas - Philosophy for Everyone unwraps the religious and moral issues surrounding the Yuletide season, including: Should parents lie to their children about Santa Claus? What relevance does Christmas hold to atheists and pagans? What does the Bible actually say about the virgin birth? How does Santa know if we have been naughty or good is there a darker side to our festive friend?
Christmas - Philosophy for Everyone offers thoughtful and humorous philosophical and cultural insights into the festive season with plenty of goodwill and just a little bah humbug.
