The Greatest Gift Series is a collection of 12 short stories that use fiction to describe what it was like to live in the times during Jesus’ birth. Follow Mary, Joseph, the Magi, the shepherds, and many more as they deal with the circumstances of a virgin pregnancy unprecedented in history. Even some of the characters you wouldn’t think of during the Christmas season make an appearance, like Isaiah and the Godhead.
“An entertaining and interesting read adding depth and color to Scriptural stories. Biblical stories told from interesting perspectives. A fun and easy read that added flavor and perspectives to Biblical events. A must read” – Jeffrey Hartman
“I enjoyed reading this book about the Lord’s plan for creation and of the birth of Jesus from the point of view of God (the Holy Trinity), Mary, the Lord’s mother, her father, Joseph, the Inn Keeper, the angel Gabriel, the three wise men, King Herod, Simeon, the Priest and the Prophetess Hannah. It is a lovely book to read especially for the Christmas season. I was blessed. To the author I say thank you for writing a blessed book to draw us closer to the Lord!” – An Amazon Customer
“Engage your imagination and enter the Christmas story afresh. I really enjoyed reading The Greatest Gift Series. Jon’s knowlege of scripture, biblical culture, and his creativity brought the events surrounding Jesus’s birth to life! He makes it easy to imagine what it must have been like for Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, and so many others to experience the wonder of Jesus’s birth first hand. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to engage their imagination and step into the events surrounding the birth of Jesus.” – Scott and Magevney Strickland
“A deeper look at the familiar story of Christ’s incarnation! Have you grown weary of the same rote Biblical Christmas story from the gospels? Jonathan dives into the lesser known cultural aspects and implications of Christ’s arrival on the lives of the pivotal and peripheral characters of the familiar, yet world altering event of Christ’s first coming. Prepare to be transported to the Jewish culture of ancient Palestine and encounter the humanity of the characters imperative to the incarnation of Christ!” – Matthew Niebauer
