Winner of the Director's Choice Award - - Give a print copy to a friend or family member.

Darkness cloaks the hills of Bethlehem, but pales in comparison to the black heart of a greedy, unscrupulous innkeeper, who unknowingly sets into motion a night of miracles the world will never forget.

David Morrell, New York Times best selling author of 'The Spy Who Came for Christmas' says "A Miser. A Manger. A Miracle. is a vivid new approach to a familiar story. Fresh and fascinating."

My Review...

5 Star Rating

An intriguing story! What if the innkeeper of Bethlehem, was in fact, Ebenezer Scrooge? What if the innkeeper was a stingy businessman, who only cared about raking in the cash during the census? What if... he needed a change of heart, one that could only be brought on by Divine intervention?

Here is A Miser, A Manger, A Miracle.

Immediately as I began to read the story, I was drawn in. The author went all-out to piece together 2 Christmas stories into one, seamlessly; that of the birth of Jesus Christ (the first Christmas), and one that took places many hundreds of year later about a penny-pinching miser.

Fantastic. I love this story. There's even a "Tiny Tim"! -- or as he is known in this volume as Timothy, a much more biblical name. I really feel like this is an authentic story. The author has done well in being descriptive of the setting, and drawing out dimensional characters. I think I could re-read this book in some future December.

The Messiah has been born, and He will touch the hearts of many. May He come into our hearts this season as we re-think the real Christmas story with new eyes.

A Miser, A Manger, A Miracle is available on Amazon in e-book format.
