Hearing the Gospel Through Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” exams the historical, religious and sociological forces that inspired Charles Dickens to write "A Christmas Carol", Hearing the Gospel Through Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol" is also a Christian devotional that uses A Christmas Carol as a tool to teach the ancient Advent lessons of Hope, Faith, Peace, Love and Joy.
Each week’s devotion begins with a section from A Christmas Carol which dramatizes the Advent Lesson and is followed with a scriptural Advent lesson from the Church of England’s Book of Prayer.
This devotional is for Christians to use as private and family devotions to prepare themselves for the Advent season.
Hearing the Gospel Through Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol" is the winner of the 2013 Independent Christian Publishers Illumination Reward for bible study.
Rev. Kincaid is also the author of two Children's books. One is an Advent Devotion called "The Little Candle That was Frightened of the Dark" published by Lighthouse Christian publishers.
The Little Candle who is Afraid of The Dark is an family Advent Devotion that is prefaced by Children’s story about baptismal candle who sits in shadowy place by a great advent wreath in a church sanctuary. The candle trembles in the dark until he hears the advent story told by each of the candles around the wreath. This story culminates with an advent family devotion, which walks the family members through the lessons of advent. The devotion concludes with instructions on how to make an advent wreath. I think the vivid imagery of this story would inspire an excellent picture book. The Little Candle is written for children between the ages of three and six, although, it can be enjoyed by all ages for the story’s timeless lessons.
A little piece of clay was contented to spend its whole life hiding is the soft, dark soil. But a potter has different plans. The Potter digs up the clay and begins to mold it into a clay pot. The pressure is too great for the clay and it crumbles in the Potter’s hand, yet the Potter persistently molds the clay until it becomes a useful pot. At first, the clay is troubled by the Potter’s firm hand molding and stretching it. Then the clay considers that the Potter may be molding the clay into something beautiful, so the clay gladly submits to the work of the Potter. However, when the clay pot reaches the market place, the clay pot learns that it is not a beautiful or magnificent pot, but a simple, ordinary pot. Yet in this minor disappointment, the little clay pot learns that ordinary pots often serve great purposes. This book is based on the Jeremiah 18:1-16 parable and it is written for children between the ages of three to five, but can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
