    1 thought on “The First Christmas Carol

    1. The First Christmas Carol was meant to be a work that could be enjoyed year round especially during Easter as well It is my sincere hope that you will find this an excellent Easter read and perhaps think of Easter differently as well.

    2. Before we begin, The Christmas Carol is a touchy subject in my house To my husband, it is not Christmas without it and yet, I could easily do without it This version is the exception to my rule This insightful book takes place at Jesus s birth The innkeeper is the miser, however, I felt that word was almost too nice for him He almost seemed heartless, worse than Scrooge But through the miracles of Christ s birth he was changed.The characters were so well written I almost did not want to read it [...]

    3. I ve read many Christmas stories through the years and two of my favorites are the real Christmas story in the Gospel of Luke and the timeless classic, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens I never in my wildest dreams imagined the two stories being combined, but they have been It s an amazing tale called The First Christmas Carol A Miser, A Manger, A Miracle Author Marianne Jordan not only turned this allegory into a timeless classic all its own, she has written a story that prompts me to buy th [...]

    4. Marianne Jordan in her new book, The First Christmas Carol published by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas gives us A Miser, A Manger, A Miracle.From the Back Cover Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Dickens In an interpretive retelling of this familiar Christmas story the author asks What if there was room at the inn The First Christmas Carol combines a timeless work of classic literature with the first documented Christmas story As darkness cloaks the hills of Bethlehem three angels visit an unscru [...]

    5. A Perfect Christmas ReadThe author has nicely blended the true Christmas story with a favorite Christmas tale It shows the real reason Jesus came to live with us.

    6. What a marvelous adaptation of the Christmas Carol by Dickens I ve never heard of anyone taking the Christmas story and adapting it this way Better yet, this book came about as a result of a play written by the author for her church production What the author has done is to flesh out the story for the readers She has done this so well that at times I was walking with Ebenezer in his soul searching journey led by three different angels Ebenezer was the Inn keeper in the tiny town of Bethlehem He [...]

    7. An amazing story written from two very different stories the life of Christ from the Bible in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and the classic Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.The author wove the two stories together creating a wonderful, entertaining Christmas story The entire book was incredible with Ebenezer, the angels, the Inn with Mary and Joseph, the life of Christ including the resurrection This is an inspirational, fun to read story for everyone.

    8. What a wonderful combination of stories It held so true to both of them that there were times you felt A Christmas Carol had always been written during the birth of Jesus Perfectly blended thank you for a lovely story

    9. AmazingA good read for anyone who can read Just be prepared to cry a bit and have to stop reading until you can see again Charles Dickens was this the inspiration for your tale God Bless everyone

    10. Wonderful What a way to combine A Christmas Carol and The Greatest Story Ever Told I cried when Ebenezer realized what Jesus did for him Won t give anything else away Just suffice it to say it is a good book to read any time, but especially at Christmas.

    11. Exceptional This book truly brought the real meaning of Christmas alive to me in a new way It will seem familiar to you for than one reason Read it now don t wait until next Christmas

    12. A Miser, a Manger, a MiracleThe system only allows for a maximum of five stars but I would like to give it This is truly a well written, marvelous, wonderful, and inspirational story My sincere thanks to Mrs Jordan for sharing it.

    13. Loved it What a great blend of two stories I ll probably have them together in my head from here on out So good

    14. I received this book from a giveaway.This is a quick read A very well written and uplifting story I liked it a lot.

    15. Excellent, I enjoyed reading it, a little of Charles Dickens and the Bible, made me realize how bad things can be and then get better Thanks for the good read.

    16. Excellent book Combining of the two stories very well done Quite thought provoking Entertaining and enlightening all at the same time Will be recommending it quite frequently.

    17. An adaptation of The Christmas Carol which is about the birth of the Savior Kind of strange but heartwarming.

    18. Great twist on a classicThis is a creative twist on a classic Christmas story and the nativity story Well done I would recommend this book to your holiday book list.

    19. This is a wonderful retelling of the Christmas story I love the way the author took a well known classic and adapted it to tell the story of Jesus birth, life, and ministry in a fresh, new way I read nearly all of it in one sitting as I waited in the dentist s office with one of my children, and, even though I know the Gospel accounts very well, this story was so well done that it kept my attention all the way through.

    20. I cannot tell you how strongly I feel about this book With all the books I have read in my life this is in the top 3 maybe even number one This author did the impossible, she mixed the birth of CHRIST and some other surprises and A Christmas Carol I was like this is going to be a disaster but it was genius I have to be totally open and honest there were places it touches you so deeply I cried This book moves you in so many ways and it makes you think could this have happened You will know what I [...]

    21. Review of The First Christmas Carol A Miser, A Manger, and a MiracleThis is a very different story blending the fictional Dickens Christmas Carol with the wonderful nonfiction story of Christmas and the birth of Jesus, our savior Of course, you have to be a Christian to believe the Christmas story to be nonfiction It is a quick read and brings a wealth of emotions to the reader You are angry with Ebenezer with his lack of emotions and torment of others, you feel empathy for Aaron as an overwhelm [...]

    22. I really liked the book It is a blending of both the Gospel of Luke and A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens From childhood, I ve adored Luke s telling of the birth of Christe manager, the Wise Men, the Christmas star have been etched on my heart, as in so many others, as the true meaning of Love As I grew up and began reading the classics, I loved A Christmas Carol, as have so many others, and it s one story I never get tired of hearing or of viewing on tv It s an annual tradition Therefore, to [...]

    23. A Miser, A Manger, A Miracle by Marianne JordanWe all know the story of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol but do we know the first Christmas Carol This Christian fiction story includes familiar characters including Ebenezer, a sister who passed away, a charming nephew, a hard working assistant, and an enthusiastic but sick little boy angels rather than spirits and Jesus.Instead of taking place in London, we find ourselves in the little town of Bethlehem.Light was expensive Darkness was free.Innk [...]

    24. At first I was reluctant to read this book because it almost sounded like heresy to mix the story of the birth of the Savior of the World with a Dickens tale from centuries later But I m glad I overcame my reluctance because the pairing of the two stories made me see the Christmas story from a different perspective The greedy, selfish, evil innkeeper, Ebenezer, travels with three different angels on journeys to the past, present, and future His assistant Isaac as Dickens Cratchit allows Mary and [...]

    25. An intriguing story What if the innkeeper of Bethlehem, was in fact, Ebenezer Scrooge What if the innkeeper was a stingy businessman, who only cared about raking in the cash during the census What if he needed a change of heart, one that could only be brought on by Divine intervention Here is A Miser, A Manger, A Miracle.Immediately as I began to read the story, I was drawn in The author went all out to piece together 2 Christmas stories into one, seamlessly that of the birth of Jesus Christ the [...]

    26. Wonderful blending of the meaning and importance of that first Christmas with Dickens s CHRISTMAS CAROL Here the agent of the miraculous transformation is clearly finding, accepting and worshipping the Savior

    27. I found this Dickens adaptation of the first Christmas irritating rather than clever It is based on this relatively new assumption that Mary and Joseph were poor and homeless Joseph was not only an older man, but a skilled tradesman He was a carpenter He had a home Nazareth He had money for a room The bible doesn t state that they were penniless, just that there was a no vacancy sign flashing at the inn I think it says something about our modern generation that we feel the need to tweak this cou [...]
