An emotionally engaging fictional story about an outcast shepherd encountering Jesus as a baby. The cinematography, acting, and sets are top notch. Well worth the 19 minutes.
Despite Christ's birth being foretold and chronicled in the Bible, it is sometimes difficult to accept that Jesus came to Earth as a baby. Thousands of years have separated us from the birth of Christ, making it is easy to begin questioning the legitimacy of the Biblical account. That is where author Rebecca McLaughlin's Is Christmas Unbelievable? comes into play.
Context is something that is hard to maintain when looking at history. The social norms, smells, colors, family dynamics and politics, especially if the event took place in a region or country where you do not live, are lost, or at the very least dimmed, through the lens of time, but that is where author Daniel Darling's The Characters of Christmas strength lies.
