A Rare Nativity By Sam Beeson

We have all heard the song The Twelve Days of Christmas, and we have all seen the traditional Christmas crèche. Now, author Sam Beeson and photographers Nina and Terral Cochran combine these two classic Christmas icons to create A Rare Nativity.
Upon reading the first lines of the book, it is clear the narrator holds a bitter grudge as he sends his enemy crude and discarded gifts: On the first night of Christmas I gave my enemy a briar from a tanglewood tree. On the second night of Christmas I gave my enemy two rotten eggs.
Night after night the gifts pile up shards of glass, rusty nails, gnarled twigs, and more. What the narrator s enemy decides to do with each of these odious gifts is nothing less than a Christmas miracle. The photographic creation of the rare nativity at the end of the book is both a work of art and a wonder to behold.

Sam Beeson teaches creative writing, Shakespeare, and English at American Fork High School. He and his wife, Sarah, have five children and one dog. Sam tries to write something every day and enjoys playing Grammar Punk.

Author Beeson has wrote the all time best and much needed Christmas book. This is a book that everyone needs to buy for their enemy and give to them this Christmas.
This will be the one gift that your enemy will NEVER for get. And it just might change their heart as well.
A book that sums up this time of year FORGIVENESS. is what it's all about.
The best gift you can give this year is the gift of forgiveness and this is the book to tell that enemy you forgive them.
This opens up a great way to have that much needed conversation with those who have done you wrong
I plan to buy a copy for someone this year and I will cherish the fact that it is a gift straight from my heart.
Matthew 5:43-44 is presented in such a way you will never forget it.
This is a book you are going to want to share so make sure you pick up a few copies.
I gave this book 5 stars two times. I HIGHLY recommend this book. Put it on your gift list.
