David Nicholson Review - If He Had Not Come

David Nicholson Review 

We recieved a copy of David Nicholson story book If He Had Not Come to review. This book is a thin book that is updated in print and beautifully illustrated in color. 
The original author of If He Had Not Come was Nan F. Weeks, little is know about her other then she was a teacher and writer of stories and curriculum for children. The original version of this story in 1938 was  published and included in an anthology called Christ in the Fine Arts, by Cynthia Maus.  

When David Nicholson's children were young and in Sunday School, he heard this story and after many years of reading this to his family he wanted to reintroduce it to today's generation of family readers. 

Christmas Book Review
This book is about a boy named Bobby who is eager to celebrate Christmas and open gifts on Christmas morning. Before bedtime on Christmas Eve, he and his father sit down and read the bible turning to John 15:22, "If He Had Not Come."

 Soon after Bobby drifts off to sleep and wakes up on what is thought to be Christmas morning. The story begins to take a look at life and what it would of been, "If He had not come."  

When Bobby wakes up, he wakes up to see no evidence of Christmas. Feeling confused and scared Bobby goest to town asking what was going on? He tries to explain it is Christmas, Jesus' birthday but no one in town knew anything about this Christmas celebration or birth of Jesus. As he gazed at the town he notices that the church, children's home and hosptial are now gone. Bobby then turns towards home. Once he arrived he picks up his father's Bible, they read from the previous night. He opens it up in John only to read the words, "If He Had Not Come.

This book really puts in to perspective a world with out Christ. Not only is this a very good book to read and start a new family tradition around the holidays. This book is a very good conversation starter. Definitely will be sharing this book with others. I have already purchased an other copy for friend of our family. I have never heard about this book until this review and I am truly grateful for this opportunity to read this book again at Christmas.
