Based on the song by Hilary Weeks. Mary and Joseph weren't the only ones turned away from the inn at Bethlehem. In this new Nativity story, a widower named Micah travels the crowded road to return to the town of his birth. Just in front of him a young woman, heavy with child, rides in the back of a donkey. Her husband leads the way, walking slowly to make the ride smoother. Every so often the young woman turns toward Micah, offering gentle words of encouragement as he hobbles along behind them. And each time they stop for water, she makes sure that her husband offers Micah a sip. When they arrive at Bethlehem, Micah and the young couple go their separate ways. Micah wearily wanders the streets for shelter, a place to eat, and some way to fill his loneliness. Although he doesn't receive what he wants, he does receive what he needs--a warm quilt, a loaf of bread, and in the end, an invitation to come inside a small stable.

Book Description Granite Publishing & Distribution, Orem, UT U. S. A., 2004. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Burgundy, white and illustrated dust jacket. Book brand new never been read. Volume 6 of a 6 volume set. ; This is the sixth and last volume of the Book of Mormon commentary series. It covers a more extensive time period of the Nephite culture than any of the other five volumes. It begins during the thirty-fourth year after the birth of Jesus Christ and ends in the four hundred and twenty-first year of the same time period - for a total of three hundred and eighty-seven years. In addition, it contains an abridgment of about two thousand years of the Jaredite record, the Book of Ether. The geographic information is sparingly treated and is only spoken of in general terms. What are Mormon is referring to as the place where the people "spread upon all the face of the land" is left in question (4 Nephi 1: 23). The geography of "the north countries" (Mormon 2: 3) is not clearly defined. How far northward the people of Nephi were driven is not dealt with (See, Mormon 2: 20, 29). The location of the land of desolation where the Jaredites were destroyed (See, Alma 22: 30-32) , and where many of the last battles of the Nephites were fought, is also not clearly defined (See, Mormon 5: 3-7). The land of Cumorah remains in controversy (Mormon 6) , but it is assumed that it is in New York State, until the time comes when "a knowledge of these things must come unto the remnant of these people, and also unto the Gentiles" (Mormon, 5: 8). In this work we have concentrated on the guidelines for life given to us by the abridgers, which will bring us "nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book" (Book of Mormon Introduction; quoting TPJS, 194). ; Book of Mormon Commentary Series; Vol. 6; 6" x 9"; 449 pages.
