About the Author
Luis Palau is an international Christian evangelist living in the Portland area in Oregon, United States. He was born in Argentina and moved to Portland in his mid-twenties to enroll in a graduate program in Biblical studies.
Luis’ radio broadcasts in both English and Spanish are heard by millions on 3,000 radio outlets in 48 countries.
He has authored close to 50 books and countless articles on issues of faith, and has counseled with business and political leaders and heads of state around the world. His book, A Friendly Dialogue Between an Atheist and a Christian, quickly became a bestseller in China and released in the United States in February 2008.
Luis and his wife, Pat, live in Portland, Oregon, where they have twelve grandchildren and four sons, three of whom are actively involved with the ministry.
In countries and cultures throughout the world, Christmas is a long-standing, heartfelt tradition. But for others, it is still a new idea ?exciting and fun? yet somewhat foreign, imported tradition. Many may not know the origin of this special holiday, and others may have forgotten its true meaning. Luis Palau talks about two types of Christmases in the world today: one Christmas is that of commercialism, parties, drinking, and spending money and the other Christmas, that is of love, joy, hope, peace, and adoration of the one whose birthday we are invited to celebrate- Jesus Christ.
