Christmas is coming up quickly and today I am sharing about a book that is a little different. The Battle for Christmas by Jeremy Hinshaw is a story about the birth of Christ, but not like those most of us are familiar with. Read on to learn more about this title and see if it is a good fit for your family.
The Battle for Christmas by Jeremy Hinshaw
After training and practicing for the auditions, Andy’s friends excelled. Andy, however, failed miserably. When the positions were posted, his worst fears came true – he was the only angel not given a job for the birth of Lord Jesus.
Would Andy be the only angel not to have an assignment for this climactic event?
How did Heaven defend Bethlehem from the onslaught of Lucifer and his horde of demons?
Praise for the Book
This was a great book to bring alive the story of Jesus birth, especially for those who have heard it many times before. Although fiction, it challenges us to remember that we are not doing this on our own. There is a whole army of angels at our disposal.
“Thank you, Jeremy, for captivating my thoughts and painting such a glorious picture, not often considered when thinking of that blessed day. From the very beginning as you described the landscapes I was hooked. The details breaking out the characters and each one’s place in the story are masterfully woven. The story is packed with enough intrigue, adventure, and truth to be enticing to readers of all ages, and especially the youth of today. Compared to other books I have read on the subject, this one takes the cake with its creative storyline that is jam packed with adventure, humor, and close-calls. I recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of adventure. A fresh take on the matter that is certain to wow its readers. Especially those interested in a view behind the veil that we all know exists!”
“I loved The Battle for Christmas. Not only is it a book I’ll read again, but it’s also a book I can’t wait to share with my children and nieces and nephews. In The Battle for Christmas, we get a great fantasy paired with reminders of our hope and our faith. Plus, what an adventure! I really liked Andy. He’s the type of character young readers will want to emulate, and one we’ll want our children to emulate. I think his gift is one we all struggle with and one of the most important.”
Excerpt from The Battle for Christmas
“Recently, Michael went to speak with the Romans,” Gabriel said.
“He has convinced the Romans to tax the Jews for the second time. He
will be returning to set the course for the Jews to appeal the tax. This will
delay the tax long enough to set in motion the Lord Almighty’s timetable
to send His Son to Earth.”
He motioned to Michael. Michael simply nodded as he stared blankly
across the room.
“I spoke to the priest Zechariah,” Gabriel said. “I told him that he
and his wife will have a child. This child will be the one from the desert
preparing those for our Lord Almighty’s birth.”
Gabriel laid the scroll down to his right, placed both elbows on the
table, and interlocked his fingers in front of him as if in prayer. The table
creaked from the weight of his massive forearms. Gabriel was always
direct and to the point.
“All angels will be needed for this event,” Gabriel continued.
