If you’ve listened to our recent podcasts, you know about my frustration with the synthesis of the Christian Christmas and the secular Christmas. Here’s a good example of a secular writer viewing Christmas as wonderfully sacred, and yet entirely secular. Hopefully we’ll continue to think, as Christians, about the best way to challenge these views.

Ben Bartlett lives in Louisville, Ky., with his wife and two terrific kids. His degree is in Political Theory and Constitutional Democracy from Michigan State University, and he has a bunch of education from a bunch of other places with nothing official to show for it. He has taught high school speech and debate, worked for a congressman in Washington DC, and worked in the health and energy industries. He is interested in how pop culture, history, politics, and theology interact with the inner and community lives of individuals... which is weird because he now works as a business analyst. Few things make him happier than reading, discussing, and recommending books.
