Overview

It starts innocently enough in the town square of Possum, Virginia. But it becomes a spectacular national scandal: Can a federal judge outlaw Christmas? Thomas Hammond and his wife play Joseph and Mary in the annual live nativity in their hometown. But a federal judge rules the display unconstitutional. Thomas refuses to abide by the court order—and ends up in jail. From the courtrooms of Virginia to the talk shows of New York City, the battle escalates into a national media spectacle. Caught in the middle is law student Jasmine Woodfaulk, assigned to represent Thomas as part of her school’s legal aid clinic. Only a surprising series of events can reconcile a stubborn father, a crusading law student, and a recalcitrant judge. The Judge Who Stole Christmas is a charming, warm, and thought-provoking Christmas tale that explores in a fresh way the real reason for the season.

This was a very good Christmas story. It is a very quick read and it gets you in the Christmas mood while reminding you of what is important, Christ and your family!

Another excellent book by Randy Singer. I like how he brought back the Hammond family & showed Thomas Hammond to be as strong hearted & stubborn as he was before. I also like the addition of Jazz, as she proved to be an excellent character that I hope he uses again. Looking forward to more & more Randy Singer books in the future!!!

This book stole my heart. It dealt with today's issues and the outcome was unexpected but delightful. Putting Christ back into Christmas is what we all need to do. Excellent reading.

This story will bring tears to your eyes. The town of Possum, Virginia has a live manger display in the town square. When a lawyer for the ACLU arrives and serves 'Joseph' with a summons to appear in court. The judge sides with the ACLU and Thomas Hammond (Joseph) along with the town, try to find a way around the court order to cease and desist. Thomas is willing to spend time in jail for his beliefs, and the judge does not hesitate to send him to jail-until Dec. 26 or an apology is issued. When Thomas finally apologizes to the judge and the court, he leaves jail to once again assume the part of Joseph, this time with a surprising Mary at his side.

I enjoyed 99% of this book very much. The basketball went over my head somewhat (excuse the pun) and the religion was a little outside my comfort zone too, but the book was well written, the characters believable and the legal aspects interesting.For me, the ending let it down. Just a bit too miraculous to be true. But I suppose it *is* Christmas...

Plot Summary: What happens, When & Where, Central Characters, Major ConflictsThis short book was still a nice heartwarming read about what happens when a man is ordered by a local judge to stop displaying a living nativity scene in the town square. Singer's legal knowledge is evident as he takes us through several trials and legal proceedings. Style Characterisics: Pacing, clarity, structure, narrative devices, etc."Singer also tries to put a human face on these issues, and shows how people on both sides may be neither the saints nor devils they are often made out to be. How Good is it?A nice quick read.
