There were a lot of good things about this book. I enjoyed the fact that the book was set up almost like an advent calendar, but I didn’t enjoy the fact that there weren’t really any “new” or “unique” ideas. I did like the fact that all of the ideas, both Christian & not, are all put together in one place. I think I’d get more out of the book, if I didn’t work in retail & be bombarded with the worst of humanity all month long.
