Told in two parts, the book begins with an adaptation of the narration and music from the stage production of Joy to the World: A Sacred Celebration by Jason F. Wright and Jenny Oaks Baker. In it, a shepherd named David takes us on a sacred journey that celebrates the Nativity through beloved carols and scriptures. The text can be read alone or used as a script for performances with family, friends, book clubs, or church groups. Sheet music to beloved Christmas carols is accompanied by QR codes of instrumental audio tracks performed by Jenny Oaks Baker & Family Four.
Part two of the book invites readers to become witnesses of Christ by adopting five of His attributes (benevolence, forgiveness, patience, prayerfulness, and faith), each accompanied by timeless wisdom and thought-provoking insights by New York Times best-selling author Jason F. Wright and supported by scriptural passages. Wright also includes five true stories of people who have embraced each of these attributes. For example, one woman used Jesus’s attribute of forgiveness to reconnect with her absent mother, resulting in a heart-warming miracle for both mother and daughter.
This large-format, full-color, illustrated Christmas gift book is a must-have holiday keepsake for music lovers.

By far my favorite of these Christmas Books. When it comes out I plan on getting a copy for our house. The beautiful story and music in these pages is fabulous. Yes there were some formatting errors in my copy but I was able to work around them and the book was just so good. I even read it all to my husband who also loves it
