Win a free copy of The Nativity Story, by Angela Hunt!

Post a comment here by 8:00a.m. December 21st and I'll mail you your very own book!


My review of The Nativity Story will be featured in December's Afictionado, AFCW's e-zine. So look for it there. I do highly recommend the book--it is extremely well done.

Please visit the author's website here: http://www.angelaelwellhunt.com/ and take a look at her blog entries for December 1-6 and 9th. She explains how the screenplay and book came to be.

Hopefully many of you have already seen the movie from which this book was written. There has been mixed press about it, but I felt it was historically accurate and quite moving as well. However, I will say that the book evoked more emotion in me than the movie did (I read it before I watched it), perhaps because I like to see things in my head. The movie was worth the watch in any case.

Angie Hunt is currently working on two projects--a nonfiction book for Mandisa from American Idol, and the second in her Fairlawn series. Her next book will be released summer 2007-- The Elevator, which looks like a gripping suspense novel. Can't wait!

Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a copy of Angie's book, The Nativity Story!

  1. Karri,
    I'd love to be entered in the contest to win a copy of The Nativity Story. I loved Angela's book Magdalene, and I'm looking forward to reading The Nativity Story as well. Angie does such a wonderful job weaving historical truth with fiction.

    Have a blessed Christmas!

  4. I'm looking forward to seeing this movie. My only thing is, when I asked someone who saw it, I found out that there's only one angel scene and all it is, is just one of those "white light" moments akin to most angel scenes in movies. That's too bad. Given today's FX capabilities, I would have thought they would have shown the chorus of Heaven over the shepards. Still, the more people that can find out about Jesus, the better.

  6. I haven't read the book or seen the movie, but reading about it has whet my appetite. Like you, I think that I would like the book better, simply because books often go deeper than movies.

    Blessings to you!
