I hope and pray that parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, caregivers and siblings and teachers and friends will always tell the story of the Nativity at Christmas. For it is, after all, a children’s story…and to such as these belongs the Kingdom of God.*
Pictured is a selection of pages from The Christmas Word. The full story can be found in the iTunes & Kindle Stores.
He spoke with joy of the child, a Son would she bear;
A Son and a Saviour – an answer to prayer.
A Son of the Most High and Jesus his name,
Of David’s own house, a throne he would claim.*
The Christmas Word contains over forty scriptural references, taken from the unique accounts of Matthew, Luke, and John, creating a single interwoven narrative.
For Children of All Ages
While the story takes a whimsical, child-like tone, the richness of both the text and the artwork provide children and adults with opportunities for further learning and spiritual reflection.
Each poetic stanza rests on the backdrop of some of the most famous pieces of Christian art ever created, by such masters as Michelangelo, Giotto, Botticelli, and Rembrandt, producing a stunning and illustrative tapestry.
Readers will quickly recognize in The Christmas Word the lyrical narrative quality akin to two famous Christmas classics: 'Twas the Night Before Christmas & How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
“Be not afraid! And have you no fear!
For I bring you good news to be preached far and near,
Of great joy to all people which comes with this Word:
For to you a Savior is born, Christ the Lord.*”
For from the very beginning the Word was with God.1
And the Word was God, think you this not so odd!
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,2
To save us from sin, and preparing us thus:
To be children of our Father in heaven above,
Who sent His own son in an abundance of love.
So that all who believe might not perish in strife,
But through God’s grace and mercy have eternal life.3
