Give This Book This Season:

Updated on November 16, 2018

Looking for the perfect gift to give this season? Look no further.

Are you tired of giving the same old stale gifts every Christmas. Would you like to find the perfect gift, even for the person who has everything? You've come to the right place. I will show on this page why the Biblical novel, "Of Such Is The Kingdom" would make the perfect Christmas gift. This is true especially if the intended recipients are avid readers, but even if they are not, as it could be an encouragement to read more.

There are several reasons, apart from the fact that I wrote it, why the Biblical Novel, "Of Such Is The Kingdom" would be the very best Christmas gift you could possibly give to those readers on your list. Don't have a list? Perhaps it's time to make one. What about your grandmother or even your mother, or a sibling who likes to read--especially if they like to read historical fiction or Biblical fiction, but even more especially if they are someone you have been trying to reach with the message of the gospel.

And, for Last Minute giving, there are expedited shipping options available, or, you can always give the E-Book version (See "OR give the eBook...." below).

Of course, I'm also making this page to promote this Biblical Novel and increase holiday sales. But that does not negate in any way what I have said at the start of this post, or what I say further on on this page.

First consider why you should give books in general:

(From the below listed hub:) With all our fancy devices (iPods, Xboxes, blackberries, Nintendo's, DVD's etc.) How many us take the time these days to curl up with a good book? how many books have your read lately? How many do you think your friends or family have read? Maybe it's time to revive the art before it's too late.

Quick poll:

Have you given books as holiday gifts before?

See results

If you give only one book, let it be this Biblical Novel:

[From the synopsis:] " What do a cynical, non-conformist dry-goods salesman, a disgruntled blacksmith, and a musing mendicant all have in common? Down deep, they all seek for something better; and eventually, they all find the childlike humility and faith required for true fulfillment. "

My Biblical novel:

From a professional review of this Biblical novel by Vivian Crystal:
"James M. Becher takes the reader back to the time of Jesus, into the homes, conversations, and deeds of ordinary and extraordinary individuals who were so deeply affected by the birth of this man. Meet Manaheem, Herod's foster brother a non-conformist, who on one hand attempts to influence history by helping his brother to unseat Pontius Pilate, the Roman Procurator, and on the other hand who knows there is something more to life than the grasping machinations he helps his brother carry out....."---Vivian Crystal, reviewer

Some reasons why this Biblical novel would make the perfect Christmas present.: -


  1. It has been newly revised and expanded, now with a total of 370 pages in the 3 part edition and 272 in Parts I & II, and it has chapter titles and quotes at the beginning of each chapter -- thus they should see it as an epic novel, worthy of being read.
  2. It has everything: Intrigue, suspense, mystery, romance, and family living.
  3. It is easy to read and written in a unique eclectic style, combining poetry, straight dialogue, and 1st person stream-of-consciousness narration with the 3rd person narrative.
  4. It contains NO extra-Biblical miracles but uses fiction to point to truth.
  5. It contains an interesting historical anachronism: The attribution of non-conformity to two of the characters, making for intriguing reading.
  6. It points to the crucifixion of Jesus as the focal point and most significant event.
  7. A very important reason--The conversion of some of the main characters may serve to prompt the same in any unconverted readers.

#8: The main reason Why you should give my Biblical Novel this Christmas:

#8: The main reason Why you should give this Biblical Novel this Christmas

All of the above-listed reasons are powerful reasons why you should give my Biblical novel as a gift, especially to your loved ones you may be trying to reach, but there is one main reason why you should give my Biblical Novel this Christmas in particular. Although it may make a great present for Birthdays as well, or even Easter if they are a super-fast reader, there is one main reason you should give my Biblical novel This Christmas. The main reason you should give my Biblical novel this Christmas is that Chapter 3, one of the longest chapters in the novel, is a flashback to the coming of the Magi and the slaughter of the innocents following the birth of Christ, as told by Manaheem. Thus, it makes a great after-Christmas read. If they have family and friends over for the holidays, they may leave it under the tree till after New Years, but then, they're bound to pick it up and start reading, even if just for curiosity, and they're sure to finish Chapter 3 by the next Holiday of the season, 3 Kings Day (January 6th.) Do you see how appropriate that would be? Then, if they are a fairly slow reader, they may finish Part II, which ends with the crucifixion, by Good Friday (again quite appropriate). Of course, it's possible they may finish Part II a little before Good Friday, but if so they'll appreciate that holiday more. I seriously doubt that they will finish Part II after Good Friday.

(only $2.29 more than the first 2 parts.)

And, If the time is short, special shipping options may be available.
