All I Want For Christmas by Rebekah Pace


All I Want For Christmas by Rebekah Pace is a powerful contemporary Christian novel that is a modern retelling of the story of Job.

We witness the faithfulness of God who never leaves us to struggle alone. He provides things for us to be thankful for daily. Sometimes in our pain and hurt, we fail to see God. We cannot feel Him. Worse still, we feel abandoned but God’s silence is never His absence. He is continually and faithfully working behind the scenes.

We see a family who materially have it all but “provision is more than just the stuff you can buy off store shelves.” We can be materially rich but spiritually poor. Modern technology drives wedges between families. Retail therapy offers a quick fix high but fails to satisfy as we chase the next new thing. Only God will truly satisfy. Sometimes modern life intrudes and we fail to make time for God.

True riches are never measured by material wealth but by how much we love and are loved. True riches are found in relationship with God and with each other.

There is much love in the novel. This love is inversely proportional to a family’s financial status. Real love and satisfaction are found in interacting with others.
