    George Taylor,Week 2:Audiobooks with Spiritual Ideas!

    in Books

    This is the second week exploring the merger of audiobooks with spiritual ideas. While we may usually think of Bibles, books about the Bible, or devotionals containing spiritual ideas, there are other forms of writing which can be rich in spiritual ideas. In this episode, I take a look at two novels which explore spiritual ideas using the story of the birth of Jesus as their platform.  Amber Shamel’s The Swaddling Clothes is a historical novel inspired by a Veggie Tales episode.  Anne Baxter-Campbell’s Once Upon a Christmas Eve tells the story of a teenage who needs to learn a lesson or two.  You’ll hear excerpts from both of these books.
