NASHVILLE, Tenn.— A Homecoming Christmas: Sensing the Wonders of the Season, a celebration of Christ’s birth in words and pictures by Christian music pioneers Bill & Gloria Gaither, will be available September 27 from Worthy Publishing. Along with their Homecoming friends, the first family of Christian music shares stories, recipes, memories, and photos, uniquely arranged in sections highlighting the five senses.
With special inspirations from the Gaithers, along with best-selling author Calvin Miller, the 176-page hardcover volume includes contributions from Homecoming friends Mark Lowry; Jason Crabb; Russ & Tori Taff; The Isaacs; Guy Penrod; Janet Paschal; Jeff & Sheri Easter; David & Lori Phelps; Candy Christmas; and The Hoppers, among many others. In addition, the book includes offerings from best-selling author and speaker Andy Andrews, as well as Joe Bonsall from the award-winning Oak Ridge Boys.
“Since that night more than two millennia ago that divided time itself into B.C. (before) and A.D. (after), those whose lives have been changed by this baby boy have created dozens of symbols and traditions in their effort to express an event both human and divine,” Gloria Gaither shares in the book’s introduction. “All the senses have been called into play by the deep longing to share the very personal experiences of a cosmic and eternal change-point.”
Bill & Gloria Gaither’s recordings and Homecoming videos have sold more than 100 million copies. With hundreds of hymns and gospel songs to their credit, they have penned such classics as “He Touched Me,” “Something Beautiful” and “Because He Lives.” Each year the Gaithers and their Homecoming friends perform before hundreds of thousands at their arena events, festivals and cruises. Additionally, Gloria Gaither has authored more than 40 books, including Something Beautiful and Let’s Make a Memory.
