Publishers Description
Ace Collins once again shares his gift of storytelling to bring you more of the hidden stories behind some of our most-loved Christmas songs. You'll discover expressions of faith, prayers for peace, and declarations of joy as you witness the birth and background of each tune. Did you know that "The Little Drummer Boy" was written on the eve of World War II, set aside and forgotten until the war was over? Do you know how Willie Nelson's early struggles are reflected in the lyrics of the popular country song "Pretty Paper"?Did you know we tie the thundering, angelic message of "The Hallelujah Chorus" to a precise moment in history we still honor today? As you travel across the centuries to uncover the deeper meaning of each song, you'll enrich your own connection to this vast celebration of the nativity and the gift of Jesus' birth. "Collins is an ace at song history, dispensing compendiums of song backstories that are nothing if not tasty ..."-- Booklist

The book was in excellent condition  Nov 16, 2008
I received the book after a week and it was in like new condition. The boo More Stories Behind the Best-loved Songs of Christmas is a wonderful book. It is very informative about the Christmas & carols we hear every Christmastime. The text was written in blue ink which made it easy to read. I liked it so much I am waiting for a book on other Christmas Songs.

Informative and entertaining.  Dec 26, 2007
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was fascinating to read the stories behind many of our best-loved carols and popular Christmas songs. The author recites his stories with a Christian perspective, but I feel that this enhances the stories rather than detracts from them.

I feel it has deepened my understanding and appreciation of Christmas and revealed to me, the contributions of the men and women behind this music.

How each one of them added something special and unique to our celebrations of Christmas.
