This is a fun book. I read it in just a few quick sessions. Felt like it ended too soon. Each chapter stands alone, but they all tie together with a small country church's annual Christmas pageants. Each chapter tells a story about our human foibles and reveals faith and love in surprising character sketches. It is stunningly deep and silly at the same time.. Dave's story-telling just keeps getting better and better. His juxtaposition of the spiritual and the profane just leave the reader breathless. I played Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" for background music. This book and that song both nail the "collisions" of the holy and the broken in everyone's lives. Pastor Nerdig has hit a home run with these "letters" based on his Christmas sermons! Hope his books keep coming.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
