Book Review: The InnKeeper by John Piper
Preacher and poet John Piper has created a touching story that connects Christ's birth and Resurrection in a new and meaningful way. Two weeks before His Crucifixion, Jesus visits the innkeeper who provided room for Mary and Joseph on the night of His birth. He learns of the life this man, Jacob, has lived since that miraculous night.
The Innkeeper nearly brought me to tears as I read it. What a moving story of God's grace and love. The artwork provided by internationally recognized artist, Glenn Harrington, is stunning. He captures the world in which Jesus and Jacob live, and draws the reader in through his inspired illustrations.
This is a beautiful book for any Christian home. A perfect gift or a wonderful book to display in a special area of your home, no one who reads it will be left untouched.
