    Sweet Stories

    The Nativity Collection by Robert Morgan is a quick read with multiple stories revolving around the Christmas season. Morgan spends time each year crafting stories for his church congregation and the compilation became this latest piece of work. Although I'm not always a huge fan of multiple short stories because some authors struggle to develop their characters enough, Morgan does a solid job. I found myself lost in the world of a struggling family in the winter without many resources and not wanting a story concerning a lost car and the elderly lady who "stole" it to end. (See? My problem with short stories.)

    If you enjoy brief vignettes starring everyday people and situations, you will enjoy The Nativity Collection. This collection of short stories also includes beautiful pictures that correspond with the story, which our three year old son enjoyed immensely as mommy read the book. Even if it's past Christmas, the lessons and love found in the pages of this book will not disappoint you.

    Six beautiful stories about the true meanin of Christmas

    Truth be told, I was a little skeptical when I requested this book from Booksneeze. Two years or or so I received a Christmas book that I was so excited to read but after I did read it I was really disappointed because I was expecting something completely different.

    The Nativity Collection is different. I loved this book because when I read it I really felt the Christmas spirit. It was a great book to read before Christmas because it prepared me for what Christmas really is about.

    The stories are simple and beautiful. Each different from each other but the message was the same. I think it is the perfect book for a Christmas gift because is suitable for children as well as for grown-ups.

    The Nativity Collection

    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.

    A Beautiful Christmas Gift Book

    Robert J. Morgan is a Nashville, Tennessee pastor. Each Christmas he writes a new fictitious Christmas story and reads them to his congregation on Christmas Eve. What a treat it must be for this congregation to hear one of these touching story each Christmas.

    This beautiful gift book is a collection of six of those stories accompanied by beautiful photos.

    Of the six stories in The Nativity Collection, the first story "Ollie" is my favorite. In this story, a family's car filled with their gifts and Christmas feast disappears from a parking lot. Thinking there car has been stolen they head to the police station to make a report. Later that evening they find a car of the same make and model alone in the parking lot. Realizing someone must have mistakenly taken their car home leads them to a memorable Christmas Evening spent with a lonely elderly lady.
    Also included are stories of a stage frightened boy who quotes classic literature in a Christmas play, a father who keeps busy by carving a cradle for his soon to be born son and three other delightful, touching stories that focus on Christmas.

    Content: Clean and uplifting.

    Rating: 4 Stars - a great Christmas gift book for a neighbor or friend.

    Wonderfully delightful

    I really enjoyed the stories in this book. I thought each story was perfect in length and had a wonderful plot. I rather enjoyed that each story felt real and alive. The description of each story was the perfect blend.

    I found each story entertaining and well thought and inspiring. I would recommend this book to anyone. It would make a great Christmas book to friends and family or to sit on your coffee table.

    The only thing I really didn't care for was that the sleeve to the book was taller than the book itself and I found that quite awkward. Other than that, I rather enjoyed the book immensely.

    True to the Christmas Spirit

    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.

    Great for yourself or as a gift!

    This is a wonderful book. Gorgeously bound with thick pages and lavish illustrations and photographs, it is perfect as a gift AND to buy for yourself and keep year after year. You could even make a Christmas tradition of reading one story a night together in the week leading up to Christmas (that's what I'm going to do).
    As with any collection of stories, there are some that you will LOVE and some that are just pretty good, but they all share one thing: a nativity plays a part in each story, and they are all full of quiet miracles.

    My ratings per story:

    Ollie: 5 out of 5 stars
    Poet Boy: 4 out of 5 stars
    Over My Dead Body: 3.5 out of 5 stars
    Five Quarters of a Mile: 4 out of 5 stars
    Nativity Seen Smiling: 3.5 out of 5 stars
    Sugarplum and the Christmas Cradle: 4 out of 5 stars

    QUOTES:

    Ollie

    Well, this was turning into an exciting Christmas for me - a stolen car, an imprisoned family, a crazy old woman, and all our Christmas presents hanging in the balance. It was an adventure!

    Poet Boy:
    Since no one could figure out how to keep the curtain from rising for Act 2, the players got into position.
    Over My Dead Body:

    It was a creche only a heartbeat away from life itself, and all who saw it knew that it was Max Schroeder's masterpiece.

    Five-Quarters of a Mile:

    But something was wrong, and Zeek felt winter in his bones. Two days ago, he'd had a spell while shoveling snow from the path that led past the woodpile and on to the outhouse. That pathway was crucial.

    Nativity Seen Smiling:

    The unhappy couple had snapped at each other endlessly, taken their meals in silence, and thwarted all efforts at honeymoon bliss.

    Sugarplum and the Christmas Cradle:

    Finally he'd gotten to the S's, and that's when he'd found Sugarplum, and now she was Sugarplum morning, noon, and night. Truth be told, it was getting a little sickening, even to Sugarplum, who felt she was being sugar pummeled to death.

    "the nativity collection" definitely put me in the mood for Christmas.

    All six short stories in this book take place on Christmas though it's in different places and times. "Ollie" is about a boy and his family going Christmas shopping. It's 1963 and they spend the day buying presents and picking up the necessary items for their traditional Christmas dinner. Through a series of events, they end up at a neighbor's house who mistakes them for her family who passed away when she lived in Germany. They celebrate Christmas with her, giving Ollie a chance to change his perspective on what the season is really about.

    "Poet Boy" is about Robert Louis Brendleton and the Christmas play he reluctantly stars in as Joseph when fourteen. Brendleton suffers from stage fright and instead of saying his lines the night of the play, he recites various lines from poems he's read during the many hours spent in the library in his home. For example, when Mary gives her line about being called blessed, Brendleton responds, "Oh Mary," he said, "how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach, when feeling out of sight.I love thee to the level of every day's most quiet need, by sun and candlelight."

    "Over My Dead Body" tells the story of Max Schroeder, a gifted woodcarver. Though he mainly whittled sheep, he was inspired to make a nativity. He began receiving offers for the masterpiece but would always give the same response, "You shall have it.over my dead body." When Schroder finally passed away, no one knew who he left the nativity to. At the reading of his will, it was revealed "he left it to all of them - by leaving it to none of them." He was buried beneath his church and left the nativity to the church so it would be displayed.over his dead body."

    The final story is titled "Sugarplum and the Christmas Cradle." J.B. and Sugarplum are newly married and their families are less than thrilled that she's already pregnant. J.B. sets to work making a beautiful cradle for his son, spending all of his spare time carving and sanding. When he finally shows it to his wife, she's speechless at the simplistic beauty of it. Yet their son was never to see it. Shortly before Sugarplum would give birth, they were summoned to Bethlehem to take part in a census. And we know how the rest of the story goes.

    I liked the uniqueness of each story. Some were light and funny while others a little more deep. I think maybe the last story was my favorite. It was interesting to read about Mary and Joseph in a modern setting. "The Nativity Collection" definitely helped put me in the mood for Christmas.

    Wonderful Christmas Read

    This gift book is a collection of inspirational stories about the Christmas Nativity. Each narrative takes place in a different setting and focuses on each family's unique legacy of their particular nativity experience. Each story in this coffee table book is short enough to be read in a few minutes, or together as a family as a reflection of the Christmas season. Some of the stories spoke more personally to me than others in this collection but I think this makes it appealing to a wider audience. Each story has nice pictures throughout that add to the appeal. I would recommend this book for a gift or to have out on the coffee table during the Christmas season.

    The Nativity Collection by Robert J. Morgan

    The Nativity Collection by Robert J. Morgan, is a collection of six fictional Christmas stories each centering around the nativity. Pastor Morgan writes one of these pieces a year and shares it with his congregation, on Christmas Eve. Now, those of us who don't attend his church, get to share in the blessing , too. The first story, "Ollie" takes place during 1942. It's about an elderly woman who accidentally steals a car and the owners hearts as well. This may bring a tear of joy to your eye, it did mine. The second, "Poet Boy," is a humorous story of boy who can recite classical literature but not his lines for the Christmas play. The next "Over My Dead Body," is about a talented wood carver who, after years of being wrapped up in his work, gains a new perspective on life. The forth selection, "Five Quarters of a Mile," is a survival story of man and his grandson, stranded in their Appalachian Mountain home, by a blizzard ,during Christmas. Things don't quite go as planned for the honeymooning couple, in the fifth story, "Nativity Seen Smiling." The last story was my favorite, "Sugarplum and the Christmas Cradle." This is the story of expectant parents and the father's desire to made the perfect cradle for their baby. It's one of those timeless stories that leave you at a lost of words when you read it for the first time. It was a joy to review this book. I had never heard of Pastor Morgan before but I would be interested in reading more from him. These are wonderful stories you want to share with your friends and family, during the Christmas season. The author fleshes the characters out so well it's hard to believe they aren't real. The pictures sprinkled throughout, enhance the book even more so. The book is beautiful from cover to cover. I highly recommend this book for yourself as a gift to share with others. I give this book an enthusiastic 5 out of 5 stars.

    Beautiful Gift for the Holiday Season

    It has been a tradition in my family for years to spend evenings during the Christmas season reading Christmas stories. We've read from Guideposts, from Chicken Soup books, and from magazines. We've pretty much exhausted our library of Christmas stories - reading them over and over, year after year.
    When I saw this book up on Book Sneeze, I was flipped! I ordered it right away, and enjoyed it immensely. I won't be with my family this Christmas, as I recently moved, but I plan on giving it to my mom so that my family can enjoy these wonderful Christmas stories together.
    This beautiful gift book is filled with heart-warming short stories that show the true meaning of Christmas. The stories are well-written and the characters are well-developed and truly loveable. This book will make you laugh and cry, and knock any "Scrooge" right out of you.
    I was given this book free of charge from Thomas Nelson's Book Sneeze program in exchange for my honest review. The opinions I have stated here are my own.

    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 :)

    The Nativity COllection

    The Nativity Collection by Robert J. Morgan is a great book. There are six stories in this book. One story is shows how a mix ups can turn into a wonderful Christmas of sharing. Another is Christmas Eve, the Nativity told in a little different way, when a young man forgets his lines in a play. Also a famous carver, and how a grandchild opened his eyes to God, and the Nativity Scene he carved that everyone wanted. A blizzard, a child alone with his grandfather, who has a heart attack, and how the Nativity carved by the grandfather's grandfather saved them. Then a pre-Christmas wedding, a honeymoon that goes badly, and a young couple whose marriage starts off on the wrong foot, and how a a Nativity Scene helps them back on the right road. And finally a story with a surprise ending, including a real live Nativity. This book is a great way to get in the Christmas Spirit and has great messages that you can read and re-read with your family every Christmas season. This book would also be a great gift for neighbors and friends to share these great stories.

    Great Christmas gift!

    This book contains 6 short stories. Each will introduce you to different characters in a way that makes you feel like they are old friends.

    I enjoyed all of the stories, but my favorite was the first story, "Ollie," which shares the Christmas experience of a young boy during WWII.

    The book is beautiful. The layout of the pages and the photographs really added to the stories. I initially thought this would make a good gift for a certain family member, but now I want to keep it for myself! I'll just have to buy another copy.

    I wasn't familiar with the author before reading this, but I would be interested in reading any other books he has written.

    I love Christmas and even though it is only September, I'm ready for the season to arrive! I definitely recommend this book.

    Amazing Stories!

    THE NATIVITY COLLECTION:
    Six Stories that Share the Smiles, the Heart, and the Hope of Christmas
    by Robert J. Morgan
    forward by David Jeremiah
    Thomas Nelson Publishing

    The stories are:
    Ollie-A story of how a mix up turned into a wonderful Christmas of sharing.

    Poet Boy- Christmas Eve, the Nativity told in a little different way, when a young man forgets his lines in a play.

    Over My Dead Body- A famous carver, and how a grandchild opened his eyes to God, and the Nativity Scene he carved that everyone wanted.

    Five Quarters of a Mile- A blizzard, a child alone with his grandfather, who has a heart attack, and how the Nativity carved by the grandfather's grandfather saved them.

    Nativity Seen Smiling- A pre Christmas wedding, a honeymoon that goes badly, and a young couple whose marriage starts off on the wrong foot, and how a a Nativity Scene helps them back on the right road.

    Sugarplum and the Christmas Cradle-A story with a surprise ending, including a real live Nativity.

    The first story, Ollie, had me in tears very quickly, and I can bet that most of the others who read it, will shed a tear or two. Poet Boy had tears rolling for a different reason, and you can really imagine that this is a true story.

    My first thought upon opening the book, this would make a great gift, and it will, but it is also a book that I will keep, and reread every Christmas. All the stories are special, and touching in many different ways.

    I received a free copy of this book from BookSneeze, to read and review. I received no other compensation. All opinions expressed are my own.

    A great Christmas Gift Book

    "The Nativity Collection" by Robert J. Morgan,
    Published by Thomas Nelson
    I opted to receive this as an e-book, and although there are many illustrations which do translate well into gray-scale for the e-reader, I am sure that my enjoyment of them would be considerably enhanced if I had opted to see them in a hard copy of the book. That said, the 59 page text is well laid out, very clear and easy to read in the electronic format.
    It is difficult to know where to start with this delightful collection of six Christmas-themed short stories. The six stories themselves are varied both in historical period and in style, and all work well. Several have nice twists in the tail which made me smile. I do not want to give to much away and spoil other people's enjoyment of this slim volume, but each story managed to make me smile, make me sad and make me very thoughtful in turn.
    My favourite of them all was probably the first one; I liked it so much that I will be incorporating it into my family's Christmas traditions, and reading it to my children on Christmas Eve. I am sure they will love it as much as I did.

    This book is definitely a keeper !

    The Nativity Collection

    When you talk about nativity collection, what usually would cross your mind? if you're a Cristian, I am sure when you talk about nativity collection, you'd think about those baby Jesus and Virgin Mary in the stable along with the animals on the night Jesus was born.

    However, The Nativity Collection by Robert J. Morgan is not exactly about the inspiring and historical scene where Jesus was born, but it's still inspiring nevertheless.

    Christmas is really overrated and completely commercialized these days, and we tend to forget what it's all about. To us, it's all about buying gifts from the mall and giving to our children. We forget what Christmas truly meant.

    This book brings back Christmas into the heart of the believers. This book tells the tale of strangers and moving stories that's pretty close to home. It's a really beautiful book, perfect for everyone to share on Christmas day or reading together with families and loved ones.

    Once you picked up this book, you'd wish that the stories inside the book would never end, because they make you laugh, cry, think and feel.alive. and human. This book will also make you believe in miracle again, if you have somehow lost your faith in miracles and God's love.
