Flower a Story of the Nativity

Be warned, do not be misled by the title of this book, it is not your mother's nativity story. It is a gritty, exciting and I hope realistic look at the people, places and events surrounding the birth of Jesus.

Flower is a formidable woman who, along with her husband Mordecai, runs the most respected inn in all of Judea. She loves her husband, friends, all children and babies. But she has problems; the angels Gabriel and Michael are visiting her, thieves are plotting her murder, Romans are invading her beloved Bethlehem, she has the reputation of being the strongest 'man' in the city, and with the census in full swing, traffic is gridlocked and parking is difficult at the market. Flower, a Story of the Nativity, is not the typical Nativity Story. It is a gritty, exciting, and realistic adventure story. While some of the characters are fictitious the people and events are patterned as realistically as possible after what we know of the circumstances. With that in mind, this book is true to the Biblical accounts. Additionally, it addresses many questions; Who were the Wise Men, Where were they from and what became of them? What was the Star of Bethlehem? How did Gabriel and Michael interact with people? Why was there a census? Why did God allow the innocents to be murdered? Why are the genealogies in Matthew and Luke different? Why does Luke say Jesus was taken to Nazareth after his birth but Matthew says he fled to Egypt, and many more.

Nativity the Christmas Story Which You Have Never Heard Before

I began composing this book in late November 2004, just as the Christmas season began. On television, there was an advertisement for another retelling of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol billed as “the timeless Christmas classic.
