Anna once lived for the opportunity to serve God, to take His word to others. But now that she has three little girls to care for—and has lost a child—her faith is sorely tried. She’s no longer sure it’s worth the risk. John tries to protect her by keeping much of the danger from her, but his lies only increase Anna’s lack of faith and trust.
While John is off on yet another dangerous mission, Anna tries to bring the spirit of Christmas into their home with her daughters. At the same time, she struggles to maintain faith—in God and in her husband.
I enjoyed A CHRISTMAS PROMISE. It’s definitely a different kind of Christmas story, one that holds a message of trust and faith for every reader. Well written and researched, Kraft brings a special treat for history lovers during the holiday season. Recommended.
John and Anna Brunner, devoted Moravian missionaries to the Lanape Indians, have secrets from each other, and spiritual challenges that trouble their relationship. But they also have a deep devotion to their cause and step out into danger and the unknown as resettled Moravians from Pennsylvania.
Here’s an excerpt that reflects on the life they left in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania:
She remembered the astonishment in John’s eyes when she told him she was staying in Bethlehem…He wrapped his arms around her and kissed her forehead.
She quivered under his touch.
He kissed her in a way that overpowered her objections as she melted against him. Pulling back, he said in a quiet voice, “Shall we deny the Lamb that was slain the reward of His suffering by refusing to go?”
The philosophy contained in the above exchange drives this story to an exciting and satisfying ending.
Even if you've never been there it was a great faith based story with very interesting characters and personalities.
