Advent - with Dr. Eric Huntsman One of the most surprising things about Christmas is that the earliest Christians didn't celebrate it--it would have been too pagan. Soon thereafter though, the human propensity to observe important events--and to have a party--began to create the celebration we know today. So how do we keep Christ at the center of it all? Dr. Eric D. Huntsman talks about Advent--the preparation for the celebration of the birth of Christ, in this interview on his book, "Good Tidings of Great Joy," recorded several years ago. The book provides a mix of history, facts, doctrine, and stories for every age and intellectual bent, casting new light on Mary, Joseph, and all the other familiar characters.
