The Mystery Of The Manger
It's the Gospel Truth!
A Children's Christmas Musical
Created by Celeste Clydesdale
Arranged by David T. Clydesdale
For many people, it is by faith alone that they believe Jesus was the Son of God and the Savior of the world. For others, this belief doesn't come as easily--they need facts and proof to support this truth. This Christmas, through the songs and narrative in the latest musical from the best-selling kids' musical creator Celeste Clydesdale, your children can share the evidence surrounding Jesus' birth as it all actually happened as promised and prophesied in Scripture.
In The Mystery of the Manger, Jane Blonde, an investigative reporter for The Morning Star newspaper wants the facts...just the facts! Her questions and searching make headline news on Christmas morning. As she observes rehearsal for the Christmas Eve pageant, the children teach her through their songs that "Like the Wise Men" we're all searching for the truth, and that the gospel accounts of Jesus' life are "The Gospel Truth." In examining these facts from Scripture, your children and congregation will discover the overwhelming proof that the baby born 2,000 years ago in that manger IS the Savior of the world. The Mystery of the Manger includes the popular Stephen Curtis Chapman song, "Facts Are Facts," as well as a Teacher Resource Kit with lesson plans, activities and pre-planning material available in digital and printed formats.

Review by Susan
We have performed this program two different times at our church...about 7 years apart. It has great music and the kids loved learning it. I use all young people, no adults, except as one of the cleaning crew! That made for a fun surprise!
