I have requested a review copy of this book from Thomas Nelson, the publisher, as part of their bloggers review programme. I am not required to give a positive review and all opinions are my own.

This book consists of short stories that was written by Robert J Morgan and shared with his church at Christmas Eve every year. What so special about this is that he only write one short story a year even though he have over two millions books in print. All the lovely stories that he shared with his church is now in this book.

There are 6 stories all in. Each were very moving and heart warming. Brings hope that there is goodness in this world after all.

Some of the stories had brought tears to my eyes. I especially love the story of Ollie.

Christmas will be here in 3 months. This book will be a very good Christmas gift for those who love reading.

he Nativity Collection by Robert J. Morgan is a set of six stories beautifully packaged in a medium size gift book. Each story houses some gem of the true meaning of Christmas. That meaning which we seem to search for amongst the decorations, school plays, and snow every year. At first I thought the stories were going to be too Hallmark Moment as staged as the photographs that are sprinkled among the pages of this collection. But, the first one "Ollie," about memory and compassion, brought a tear to my eye. The stories are very quick reads and you might even see the ending coming long before it get there, but they will still touch you. One of my favorites in this collection was "Nativity Seen Smiling" which has a touch of the Gift of the Magi about it. I'd recommend this book as sort of a pre-Christmas gift (there is a thoughtful inscription page at the front). The introduction said they were read by the author to his congregation, a new one every year. I think that and what it says about stories making up our lives is so true.

    Book Sneeze Review: The Nativity Collection

    I had the pleasure of reviewing the book "The Nativity Collection" by Robert Morgan. I didn't except this book to be a hard cover book, nor did I except the book to be a series of stories. I thought that the book would be the Nativity Story not a grouping. I really enjoyed the pictures in this book and the unique view this book offers since it is not your "run of the mill" Nativity book. I would have preferred the wording in this book to be aimed at a younger crowd but I do think this is a good book and I look forward to reading this book with my children around Christmas time :)

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
