“Benjamin: The Man Who Missed the First Christmas” from Christian Faith Publishing author Bill Trawick is an entertaining children’s story told from the unique perspective of a young traveler named Benjamin, who visits Bethlehem to sign the Roman census—and in passing witnesses behind-the-scenes moments of the greatest story in history, involving two strangers, a mysterious bright light, a full inn, and excited shepherds talking too loudly at night and disturbing Benjamin’s sleep.

“Benjamin: The Man Who Missed the First Christmas”: an amusing recount of Jesus’s birth told by a traveler unaware of the significance of the event. “Benjamin: The Man Who Missed the First Christmas” is the creation of published author Bill Trawick, a retired Baptist minister and former USAF military man based in Alabama, who has a passion for bird-watching, yard work, and reading stories to his children.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Bill Trawick’s new book is a fresh and imaginative way to retell the story of the first Christmas, a story which had in fact started as a spur-of-the-moment inspiration for the author, who invented this new story to tell his children after having to read the same little book to them over and over.

The birth of the Messiah has been one of the most significant events in history, and this alternate narrative of the story from the point of view of someone who (along with the rest of the world at the time) doesn’t yet grasp this fact makes for an entertaining and hilarious tale of sweet irony.
