Marianne Jordan in her new book, “Marianne Jordan book coverThe First Christmas Carol”  published by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas  gives us A Miser, A Manger, A Miracle.

From the Back Cover:  Matthew, Mark, Luke, and . . . Dickens?

In an interpretive retelling of this familiar Christmas story the author asks: What if there was room at the inn? The First Christmas Carol combines a timeless work of classic literature with the first documented Christmas story. As darkness cloaks the hills of Bethlehem three angels visit an unscrupulous innkeeper, revealing his past, present, and the miracles yet to come.

Not the story you’ve read. Still the stories you know.

I really like the tag line Matthew, Mark, Luke, and . . . Dickens. Why? Because “The  First Christmas Carol takes everything we know from Mr. Dickens adds it to the Gospels and gives us a very unique story. I have to say this is a lot of fun and quite enjoyable as we are given both stories that we know so well in such a different manner. Even though we have never had the story given to us this way before it is still comfortable, makes us smile and makes us want to keep reading. Keep this book somewhere handy as you will want to read it again and again every year.
