We are used to finding the Good News in the unsavoury elements in the original nativity story; Herod’s mass murder of baby boys, the muck and dirt of a stable. But where is the hope and joy in the recent brutality of an organist being randomly murdered on his way to church on Christmas Eve? In this moving pamphlet, his widow shows us how to find it.

This Christmas giveaway booklet is ideal for those churches who are looking for something different to offer carollers. It still offers the same appealing gospel message, but from a fresh angle. It has the gripping and tragic narrative of a murder mystery, but is suffused on every page by the author’s faith, hope and joy in our Lord Jesus. We all love the inside story, and here Maureen Greaves offers hers. It just might not be what your once-a-year guests expect.
