The story of Christmas started long before the Nativity. Through reverent poems by the author, Shersta Chabot tells the narrative of those who lived hundreds of years before the Savior’s birth and how they were told by heavenly messengers of the coming of the Messiah. Rejoicing, they prepared the world on both sides of the globe.
Angels of Christmas tells the story of the many angels that foretold, announced, and celebrated the long-awaited birth of Jesus Christ. Perfect to read aloud to your family or to ponder over by yourself, this beautiful poetry will enhance your holiday season with feelings of gratitude and wonder at the miracle of Christ’s birth that was anticipated both on earth and in heaven.

My Review: *****--5 Stars
I loved that the angels' good news was portrayed in such a poetic way. Scriptural references were given and the words flowed beautifully. I especially loved the ending--showing us how we can liken the story to our own lives now and tying it all together.
