T.D. Jakes’s first Christmas story features a grandmother seeking inspiration from the Bible as she prepares to create a quilt.

 

Grandmother feels as if her life and loves have all passed, leaving her alone to reminisce about the joy of yesteryear and the real Christmases she celebrated. But as she opens her heart to the stories of the Virgin Mary, the truth of what really matters to her comes to light. At the end, she folds up the quilts she has made and ventures off to share their joy and warmth with the children in a local shelter, leaving them with something to keep them physically and spiritually cloaked.

 

With ten life lessons divined from the story of Jesus’ birth, A Christmas Story for Our Times is a charming, thoughtful treat for those who consider the Christmas season to be the most special time of the year. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “[Jakes] stitches the story of the Virgin Mary into a modern-day tale that’s inspiring and warmhearted…sharp, sassy Lela is the real draw here. And as she stumbles and rights herself, Jakes achieves his purpose: teaching the Bible, gently.”

    " I found Lela's character annoying with her judgmental and negative nature, but this nature was a carefully constructed part of the story that was instrumental in the storyline. I loved the analysis of Mary's story and how it was parallelled with the lives of characters in the story. "
