Item description for The Christmas Book of Hope by Jeff Verney...

In this heartwarming tale, children discover the true spirit of Christmas. The power of prayer brings alive the hope that comes to those who believe in Jesus, a message which can be so easily forgotten by children during the hectic Christmas season. The warm, full color double-spread illustrations captivate readers of all ages as they reflect upon the Christmas message of faith, joy and hope. 300 years ago a boy who is in the worst of ways prays to Jesus and writes to Santa. One of Santa's elves writes a book of hope, which emphasizes the importance of believing in Jesus. But the special gift is lost before it is delivered. Through the power of prayer things get better for the boy. The book remains lost for 300 years until it is given to one of the boy's descendants at a time of need, bringing joy to him as he believes in Jesus.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Christmas Book of Hope?

Christ and Santa  Dec 1, 2006
"The Winter of 1706 was harsh, and little Timothy Smith was in the worst of ways. His parents were sick, there was hardly any food, and no joy was found in Timothy's house as Christmas drew near."

While many people think Santa Claus makes Christmas a more secular holiday, I've always thought he taught us a great lesson about giving. While Christ gave his life and we celebrate his birth at Christmas, Santa Claus also shows us the joyful exuberance of the heart of giving.

In this story, a boy named Timothy Smith prays to Jesus for help in a hopeless situation. He also writes Santa a letter about how his family is ill. The story has an ending that might surprise children and then another story begins with a conclusion that brings the story of Christ into modern times.

"Later that evening Santa came down the chimney into Timothy's house, and sitting by the fire were Timothy and his parents."

In this story Santa talks to Timothy and also writes letters. The author, Jeff Verney lives in a magical home in the hills of Connecticut. This book was illustrated by Frederick H. Carlson who captures the moods of the story in graphite, watercolors and gouache. They are working on a companion book for release in 2007.

This book teaches children that we get what we need when we need it most! Your prayer may be answered with a gift or with the gift of health. Either way, God knows what you need and this book teaches children that God answers prayers in unique ways.

I remember living in Africa and one time we were facing a Christmas without presents and someone knocked on the door and then ran to their car and drove away. I remember opening the door and seeing a box of gifts and felt some of the wonder Timothy feels at the end of this book. We still don't know who brought us joy that holiday season, but I never forgot the kindness and how fun it was to have presents to open even if there wasn't any snow.

~The Rebecca Review

A powerful and beautifully illustrated story with a strong Christian message for young readers.  Nov 5, 2006
Written by Jeff Verney and illustrated by Frederick H. Carlson, The Christmas Book Of Hope is a Christian picturebook about the power of faith transcending generations. Three hundred years ago, Timmy's ancestor was supposed to receive a book from Santa Claus for Christmas; but the book was lost for centuries - most likely because one day young Timmy would need it more. The book's sacred message is about "the power of prayer and the magic of faith. Most importantly, he read that if you believe in Jesus, God will take care of you, especially when times are bad." A powerful and beautifully illustrated story with a strong Christian message for young readers.
Putting Christ into Christmas  Aug 30, 2006
This book is a unique attempt to bring Santa Claus and Christ together with a strong Christian message. It definitely is a book that should be shared with as many young people as possible!
