The Innkeeper's Journal

A Christmas Classic

by Raymond McHenry View author's profile page

Overview
What if the innkeeper's storyline continued long after that unforgettable night in Bethlehem? What if his experience with Jesus helps us better understand the real meaning of Christmas? The Innkeeper's Journal only takes ten minutes to read, but it may permanently change the way you look at Christmas.
Description

This fictional story builds on Luke’s historical footnote and envisions what might have happened if the innkeeper had more than one chance encounter with Christ on that Bethlehem night. What if his entire life was affected more than we’ve ever imagined?

We generally remember the basic details surrounding Jesus’ birth, but that common familiarity can hinder our understanding of what Christmas is all about. The innkeeper character I’ve named Jedidiah allows us to see the greater scope and purpose of Christ’s coming to Earth.

Because this story merges facts with fiction, I included my personal notes at the back of this book to help guide the reader. This section also offers more insights regarding the biblical references throughout the story for further reading and study. It also contains discussion questions to use with your family and/or a small group.
