9780060611804: The Manger Is Empty: Stories in Time

The author combines autobiographical stories, short stories and poetry to explore human desire for God and the joy of discovering His presence in time - the time of our personal lives and the time which embraces the world.

From Library Journal:

Like Miz Lil and the Chronicles of Grace ( LJ 2/1/89) and much of his other writings, Wangerin's new collection of stories, parables, and poems shines with his unique blend of power and vulnerability, passion and faith. Time and time again he discerns Jesus' presence in the stuff of everyday reality, just as his seven-year-old daughter, playing Mary in a Christmas pageant, suddenly resolves her grief over the death of an elderly friend as she stares with fresh eyes at the doll in the manger. Christmas is an explicit focus in the first part of the book--Christmas: "The Season in White"--but broadly speaking, an incarnational theme also graces pieces in Ordinary Time: "The Seasons Green" and in The Final Advent: "Purple." The Manger Is Empty is highly recommended for most collections.
