Book Description: Paul Bennett had the perfect wife, the perfect family, the perfect life—until one fateful Christmas brought an unthinkable tragedy. In deep despair, he turns to drinking to drive away the pain, but he only succeeds in driving away his wife. His marriage shattered, his family gone, Paul now despises Christmas.
But can the holiday he so detests hold a miraculous surprise? After an accident in which he loses consciousness, he wakes up in the company of the shepherds who will soon travel to Bethlehem to see the newborn Christ in the manger. Can Paul find salvation on the night that forever changed the world? Can he discover the true spirit of Christmas?
My Thoughts: For some unknown reason it seems that the unexpected, not.so.good thing(s) can happen during or at the Christmas holiday time.
Paul Bennett and the terrible.not.so.good accident turns his life to drinking and deep despair.
Yes, this book reminds one of The Wonderful Life only because Paul has a similar experience.
However, when Paul travels to Bethlehem during a non conscious state of mind he learns that he needs a Savior.
Isn't the Savior being born what Christmas is truly about?
A grand story! It will make your Christmas holiday so much more than presents and eating rich foods.
