The Christmas Troll

The Christmas Troll
By Eugene Peterson (NavPress, 2004)

I bought this book a year ago because I think Peterson is a good writer and story teller. However, this book was a disappointment to me. It is nicely illustrated and the story is fine, there just was not much to it. The point of the book can be summarized in one of Peterson’s lines form the book, “Gifts are for giving and receiving, not for grabbing and getting.” That’s a fine lesson but the book simply was not as substantive as others we have read.
