This is the second week exploring the merger of audiobooks with spiritual ideas. While we may usually think of Bibles, books about the Bible, or devotionals containing spiritual ideas, there are other forms of writing which can be rich in spiritual ideas. In this episode, I take a look at two novels which explore spiritual ideas using the story of the birth of Jesus as their platform. Amber Shamel’s The Swaddling Clothes is a historical novel inspired by a Veggie Tales episode. Anne Baxter-Campbells Once Upon a Christmas Eve tells the story of a teenage who needs to learn a lesson or two. You’ll hear excerpts from both of these books.
I’ve said that this podcast is dedicated to “audiobooks, spiritual ideas, and other items of interest.” Today, I start a series of three (I think) podcasts which will highlight the merger of audiobooks and spiritual ideas. I have recorded two devotional books, A Mended Heart by Patti J. Smith and God, Me and a Cup of Tea by Michele Huey. In this podcast, I talk about both books and play excerpts from them.
