"The Queen's Christmas Message is an appealing, highly unusual and very creative anthology. After an introduction about the Queen's public expression of faith, Geoffrey Waugh provides a selection of noteworthy passages about Christmas from the Queen's Christmas messages from 1952 to 2017. He sets them into context by brief historical references, photos, and Christmas stamps. Finally there is an epilogue of famous Christmas hymns and carols including those used in the Christmas Broadcasts. This book would be the perfect Christmas present." Alison Sherrington (Author)
"A new and innovative approach to the Christmas Story and its clear message of peace and goodwill to all. It is a rewarding experience to read it from cover to cover." Don Hill (Consultant)
"I haven't seen anyone else draw the events of the last 65 years together in this way before. Using the Queen's speeches not only ties in the unfolding events of our time but reveals a deep spiritual glue that provides a fascinating and intimate insight into the personal life of our Queen. A fascinating read. 5 Stars." Rev Philip Waugh (Minister)
