Item description for I Happened Upon a Miracle: Voices from the Gospels by C. David McKirachan...

Overview
In I Happened upon a Miracle, David McKirachan offers eighteen first-person narratives told in the voices of characters from the life of Jesus, ranging from the Christmas story through the crucifixion and resurrection. The characters include the innkeeper in Bethlehem, the little boy whose fishes and loaves fed a crowd, the woman who anointed Jesus' feet in the house of the Pharisee, a Roman soldier on hand as Jesus drove the moneylenders from the temple in Jerusalem, and the keeper of the garden tomb. In each story we are invited into the Gospel text. We inhabit the stories, and through the voice of each teller we are drawn closer to the wonder experienced by the first witnesses of Jesus. This imaginative retelling of stories from the perspective of some of the supporting actors and bit players of the Gospels will prove to be an engaging resource for those seeking a fresh perspective on the life and ministry of Jesus.

Reviews - What do customers think about I Happened upon a Miracle: Voices from the Gospel?

I Happened Upon a Miracle: Voices from the Gospels  Mar 21, 2001
Dave McKirachan is as pointed and forceful a person as I have ever met. His sanctified imagination has led him to bring us inside little known Biblical characters, in keeping with the spirit of the biblical narrative. I'm eager to get my hands on this book, having heard from him personally describe its contents. These vignettes arose (I understand) out of "third person narrative" messages that help us get inside the miraculous message of the good news.
 
New insight  Mar 20, 2001
This is good one folks. There are alot of bible books out there. This one is user friendly. It will give a sense of being there. Beware, you may have some strong feelings, i.e. tears, for the players.
