About the Book    About the Author

I love the Christmas story. I love it when I read it and when children perform it, with snowmen included. I think I love it because I can identify with each of the characters in some way. With some I am inspired by their faith and in others I see reflection of my own frailty. I love the prophetic message of a story in which a baby in squalor is an eternal King. I love men of wisdom bowing at a Manger and shepherds as the audience at an angelic cantata. It is a story filled with wonder and glory.

Yet, as I get older I feel like I am losing my grip on the story. It is becoming familiar and I am beginning to miss the nuances that once romanced me. Every now and then a song or a painting reignites the story again as the artist casts light on a new facet that had begun to drift into the grey.

These are 12 reflections on the Christmas story, attempting to illuminate the nuances and beauty. To be read for 12 days throughout the Christmas period.

Editorial Reviews

"This is an encapsulating book, simple, short and stays with you. You're supposed to read it over 12 days but I couldn't put it down and ingested it's wisdom in one sitting. Magill is an honest author with talent as a writer. His voice stands out and the subject matter is more than simply 'Christmas Unwrapped', it helps you connect back to the story that defines a race, Christ's arrival on the earth. Buy it and use it to focus in on the real story of Christmas. It's the price of a Starbucks and my word so much more satisfying." - Amazon Review
