One of the greatest playwrights of Christian drama offers a glorious play for Christmas. As the Rev. Turner states in his Foreword: "This Christmas play is a search for an answer to a particular question: In what sense do I believe in the Biblical account of the birth of Jesus, whom men call the Son of God? No one but an ignoramous would contest the fact of the crucifixion. How else does one account for the emergence of the Christian faith and the continuing existence of the Church? But the nativity seems to be in a different category. "For death there must be a birth." But what of the shepherds, the angelic choir, the three wise men? What do I mean when I say, "I believe in...Jesus Christ, born of the Virgin Mary?" I write for myself, for my fellow Christians, and for those who, like Casper in the play, "would believe in...the insouciance of the butterfly...that I am somehow beloved." An exquisite seasonal drama.
