Overview What does a partridge in a pear tree have to do with Christmas--or Jesus? Bostrom reveals 12 secret codes hidden within the popular holiday song. Each of these codes contain a clue that reveals a truth about the Christian faith.
Publishers Description Every year, at Christmas time, we stop and remember the birth of God's only Son, Jesus Christ. We remember with pine greens that remind us of the gift of everlasting life. We remember with lights that sparkle, a reflection of the light of the world. We remember with music: the beautiful carols that sing of the baby born on that silent night. But not all the songs we sing at Christmas remind us of Jesus. Some are fun and silly, like "Jingle Bells" and "The Twelve Days of Christmas." This song in particular seems full of nonsense. What does a partridge in a pear tree have to do with Christmas, or Jesus? Much more than you know. Hidden in this song are twelve secret codes. Each of these codes contain a clue that reveals a truth about the Christian faith. Join Honor Jane and Alexander, two children on a quest, as one by one, they learn the secret codes and what they teach us about God's love in Jesus Christ.
