Book Review: The Swaddling Clothes

Buy it Here
Age Appropriate For: All Ages
Best for Ages: All Ages

Description: Through the ages, many stories have been told about Mary, Joseph and the birth of the Messiah. Stories of shepherds and sheep, kings, angels, and stables. But there is one story that has never been told. One story that has remained hidden in the fabric of time. The story of The Swaddling Clothes. Mentioned not once, but several times in the Scriptural text, what is the significance of these special cloths? And how did they make their way into a stable in Bethlehem? From the author that brought you the Days of Messiah series comes a whole new adventure critics are calling.

I had been wanting to try one of Amber Schamel’s stories and a Christmas story for only 99 cents seemed like a good way to try her stories. It was worth even more then what I paid for it, and it will not be the last book by Amber I will read.

I really loved how Amber wove biblical stories and fiction together to create the history of Jesus’ swaddling clothes. She did it so seamlessly that it is obvious that she spent a lot of time in her Bible and worked very carefully to make sure that the facts were right.

The story itself was so sweet and enjoyable. It isn’t long, but it isn’t to short and it very well written. I read it in one sitting because I enjoyed it so much!

If you are looking for a sweet and fresh Christmas story, a story that is biblically sound, I highly recommend The Swaddling Clothes.
