Item Description...
Overview
A cynical reporter investigates a mysterious Christmas Eve tradition of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and discovers that it dates back to a promise a World War II soldier made to a child during the siege of Bastogne. 35,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
In the tradition of It's a Wonderful Life and John Grisham's Skipping Christmas... Newspaper reporter Ben Raines is a full-fledged cynic trying to bypass what he feels is the least wonderful time of the year-Christmas. But his plan to escape on a dream vacation overseas is foiled when the boss assigns him to write the annual front-page holiday story. With a humbug twist, Ben chooses to investigate a World War II legend involving his own father that will expose the fallacies of religion and everything related to December 25th. Willy Raines fought in the Battle of the Bulge at Bastogne during Christmas 1944 and-to Ben's embarrassment-believes a real angel saved the lives of every man in the 101st Airborne unit. Some angel that was. Life was never easy for Willy after the war, and he was far from heroic in his son's eyes. Ben sets out to find other veterans who witnessed the angel of Bastogne, sure to return empty-handed. Instead, he comes home with a heart that is overflowing.

A Christmas Treasure  Jan 4, 2007
I absolutely loved this book from beginning to end. A great read at Christmas time or any time.
 
nice tale but too simplistic  Oct 17, 2005
Morris' The Angel of Bastogne is a nice story and edifying. However, he goes the opposite direction of many of his secular counterparts. Instead of doom and gloom, sex and violence; Morris' tale is too packaged where most people are believers and everything turns out just right. Sure, its nice to read but a little conflict and a few less stellar believers turning up at the right time and every corner would have made this novel more realistic. For example two of the book's main characters -one a believer and one a seeker - travel together for a newspaper assignment and everywhere (literally) they go, they meet happy and outspoken Christians. It would be nice if real life were this convenient, but it is not.

If some of the people Morris' characters met were believers and some were just ordinary people, some even contrary and nasty - it would have added more climax to the book.and every corner would have made this novel more realistic. For example two of the book's main character - one a believer and one a seeker - travel together for a newspaper assignment and everywhere (literally) they go, they meet happy and outspoken Christians. It would be nice if real life were this convenient, but it is not. We get the whole mix of humanity.

If some of the people Morris characters met (particularly the seeker) were believers and some were just ordinary people, some even contrary and nasty - it would have added more climax to the book and been more realistic. However, I gave it four stars since it does indeed edify and bring glory to Christ and his work of redemption in the hearts of men and women.
