Imagine the hushed excitement and the vivid anticipation of a child on Christmas Eve. How much more intense that anticipation must have been for those who waited for the wonder of the very first Christmas. From the ancient prophets to the three kings, from the angel Gabriel to the stalwart Joseph, Katarina Katsarka Whitley imagines their astonishment and joy at the events unfolding around them.

In her inimitable style, Whitley places herself in the hearts and minds of the biblical characters—both real and imagined—who played a part in the Christmas narrative. She weaves stories, solidly based in Scripture, at once compelling and thought-provoking. The voices of her characters lead us closer to the Christ child and deepen the meaning of the season of Advent for twenty-first-century readers.

    This devotional book for the Advent / Christmas period presents 30 monologues from various people and creatures involved with Jesus' birth and family. Whilst these are naturally all fictional, I found that they are excellent for the imagination - and do draw you back to the Scriptures. Whilst in the Scriptures there is no mention of a donkey nor of an inn keeper, that does not prevent us from imagining what if there were. As long as we correctly separate fiction and Scripture, there can be much value in stories based on Scripture. These stories helped to take me back to the days of Jesus' birth and for that I am grateful.
