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...

An unexpected twist to the 12 Days of Christmas

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.

My Review

I cannot even put into words how amazing this book is!

You have this person giving their enemy these throw away items...

And then the supposed enemy turns them around into an incredible nativity scene with the message of please 'forgive me.'

Shards of glass become a star, bent forks become the kings, crumpled paper becomes an angel.

WOW! This is one you have to see!
