Book review with a giveaway: The Unannounced Christmas Visitor by Patrick Higgins

About the Book

Book: The Unannounced Christmas Visitor
Author: Patrick Higgins
Genre: Christian fiction/Christmas
Release Date: November 18, 2014


What if angels really did come from the most unlikely of places? That’s exactly what happens in this heartwarming story, set in a homeless community in Anywhere USA. Sent to Planet Earth by his Maker, disguised as a homeless person, Enoch was on a mission: to rescue a man whose life was slowly but steadily spiraling out of control.

Inspired by Hebrews 13:2, “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it,” this story will stir your soul like never before, guaranteed! 2016 IPA (INTERNATIONAL PUBLISHER AWARDS) GOLD MEDAL AWARD WINNER.

My Review

This was a lovely story of God miraculously answering a wife's prayers for her husband  The book itself was small, but was jam-packed with small print, and it took me much longer to read than I had anticipated.  This story is mainly dialog-driven, and most of that dialog is Scripture or theological discussions.  So while I enjoyed the story, most of the book just seemed to move from theological discussion to theological discussion.  I also thought that the unbelieving character's reactions to these discussions tended to be unrealistic. 

Many will enjoy this heartwarming Christmas story of miracles and redemption.  Those who enjoy theology will appreciate the discussions in the book.

I received an ARC of this book from the author, through Celebrate Lit, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.
