'Jeremy's Christmas Journey' Book Tour with Music

Book description:

For Jeremy, Christmas is just another reminder that he’ll never be able to enjoy the things that come so easily to other children. Then one night he has a dream that will change everything. 

Accompanied by stirring music, this story of finding faith and discovering the power of the Master Healer is sure to be cherished at Christmastime and all year long.

**My thoughts**
This book is a touching reminder of how you need to hold onto your faith, even when in the depths of despair. Jeremy has been unable to walk for most of his life and doubts the faith so easily demonstrated by his parents. He just doesn't feel like he has been touched, due to his predicament. 

In his dream, he observes numerous witnesses, literally giving their testimonies before a court, as to how Jesus is a healer. Some of them even had their faith revitalized because of their interactions with Him. Each testimony is a reminder to Jeremy of how important faith can be. Will he learn from this?

Each character who provides a testimony is someone who appears in various Bible stories. Each one sings a song, to demonstrate his or her path to redemption. Music is provided at the end of the book, for those who wish to perform the songs. You can also purchase an accompanying CD. I could see this book being used in a series of lessons for either Christmas or Easter. It would also make for a fun musical program for kids and/or adults to put on around the holidays.
