Thomas Nelson (October 5, 2010) 128 pages
Step into the wonder-filled world of Christmas with this endearing collection of original stories.
Even though he has two million copies of books in print, Robert J. Morgan writes only one short story each year—an original work to share with his church on Christmas Eve. These Christmas stories are now available in one beautiful volume for your own enjoyment. You’ll meet a shy, bookish boy who finds himself center stage in the Christmas pageant, a Pennsylvania family whose car disappears on December 24th, and a mountain man trapped in a blizzard with his grandson on Christmas Eve. From six different settings, you’ll meet characters you feel you’ve known your whole life, who’ll make you laugh one minute and cry the next. So this year, and the years to follow, gather your family and experience the true spirit of love at Christmas through this timeless gift of story.
This is a cute book to get you in the Christmas spirit. I’m one of those people who believe Christmas should be celebrated year round, and I think the stories in this book are great for the whole year. They remind you what it’s all about.
I got this book for my momma, because she absolutely loves Christmas books, but I really enjoyed the stories, too. I think it would be a perfect gift for anyone who loves Christmas stories, even if it’s a gift for yourself!
Each set of pages have part of the story on one side and a Christmas picture on the other. Each story is pretty quick to read, too, so it’s also a perfect coffee table book! It’s slightly bigger than what I normally think of a gift book, but still not as big as a regular book.
