Through the ages, men have told many stories about Mary, Joseph, and the birth of the Messiah. Stories of shepherds and sheep, kings, angels, and stables. But one story no one has ever told. One story hidden in the fabric of time. The story of The Swaddling Clothes.

Mentioned not once, but several times in the Scriptural text, what is the significance of these special cloths? And how did they make their way into a stable in Bethlehem? From the author that brought you the Days of Messiah series comes a whole new adventure critics are calling "intriguing...thought provoking... a fresh twist on an age old story."

"A surprisingly sweet treasure that deftly weaves fiction and Scripture."

"I get tired of Bible stories sometimes, but The Swaddling Clothes brings the story to life."

"Heartwarming...truly inspired. A story you will want to read again and again. Rich details and a suspenseful plot will keep you reading while giving you a glimpse of God's wonderful power and His amazing love."

I enjoyed this story so much! The author did such a good job of crafting this tale. It was so interesting to see the origin of these swaddling clothes as told in the story, and watch as they were passed down through the ages. The weaving of actual events from the Bible with historical fiction as added by the author was nicely done. The Swaddling Clothes was a joy to read.

This novella is yet another Christmas story you might enjoy. I know, I know. It's not the Holiday Season--but as far as I'm concerned, Christmas never goes out of style. What do you think? The story of the swaddling clothes begins as King David wants to demonstrate to the world that this baby of his beloved wife, Bathsheba, will one day rule Israel. He calls in fabric merchants from all over to show what they can do in the way of swaddling clothes for his new son, Solomon. David declares that these colors and fabrics will forever signify the owner of them will be king. The swaddling clothes are passed down from one generation to the next, and the stories of each family are sweet and engaging. You can probably guess where they end up--but how?
