Finding Christmas by James Calvin Schaap

A gift. The baby. The pageant. The parties. The worship. The afterglow. The story. These are the elements of almost every Christmas. In Finding Christmas, award-winning author James Calvin Schaap takes a look at each of these elements through seven stories that show how imperfect people can find joy and grace in an imperfect world. His eyes turn on an outgoing bus driver, a passionate mother, a daughter reluctant to return to church, and even his own assumed-mediocre performance at a Christmas pageant. Along the way, readers see how the amazing message of Christmas can be found in the oddest of places. This heartwarming read is both moving and magical and will help readers usher in a joyful Christmas season even amidst the howling winds of winter.

My Review - This book wasn't what I expected it to be. With each story I expected a little more. Sad to say but this was a let down for me. I can't quiet explain what more I wanted but with each story I'd think at the beginning oh this is going to get good. But before it could get good it just kind of fizzled out. Definitely glad it was a free nook book on Herbie.
