Teri Marcos tells the biblical story of Jesus’ birth and the first Christmas using simple rhyme in her new children’s book, “Bethlehem’s Gift” (published by WestBow Press).

“‘Bethlehem’s Gift’ is a book about the very first Christmas, when God sent His abundant love gift to His beautiful creation, in the form of His Son, just a babe in the manger,” says Marcos. “It is a story foretold by the prophets of the Old Testament, set in the desert, under a glorious night sky filled with stars.”

Ideal for Christian parents who want to share the story of the first Christmas with their children, “Bethlehem’s Gift” uses simple, rhyming text that is easy to memorize and filled with meaningful images. Marcos stays faithful to the biblical account, bringing it to a new audience in this book celebrating God’s gift of Jesus to the world.

An excerpt from “Bethlehem’s Gift”:

“The angels rejoiced and drew shepherds afar
as three kings made their way toward that brilliant night star.”
