White Christmas, composed by Irving Berlin, and sung so memorably by Bing Crosby in the movie by the same name, is familiar to many.

The decorated tree. Beautifully wrapped gifts. Bountiful meals. We enjoy all this at Christmas often without considering what preceded the final glorious presentation.

Join Charles Morris in “the Holy Spirit of Christmas” as he uniquely explains the work of the Holy Spirit in delivering the Father’s special present to the world. Also featured are Pastor Costi Hinn and musician Laura Story.

CLASSIC CHRISTMAS SPECIALS
“A Christmas Carol”
Originally Released 2008
Radio Theatre | Focus on the Family
3-part special for 2-hour block/1 hr. 39 min.
Charles Dickens was just 12 years old when he saw firsthand the devastating effects of child labor. He never forgot those images. In 1843 he wrote a pamphlet titled: “An Appeal to the People of England, on Behalf of the Poor Man’s Child.” It became the story of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Focus on the Family brings to life the story of miserly Scrooge who in one momentous night is confronted by his own lack of compassion—and given the opportunity to change not only his life but others too! It’s a message that defines the spirit of the season of Christ’s birth, of His loving compassion!
Originally Released 2018
Focus on the Family
1 hr. special with time for local spot avails
Focus on the Family is inviting your listeners to recall their own tales and traditions in their latest radio special simply called, “Christmas Stories.” Jim Daly and John Fuller host favorite guests like Bill and Pam Farrell, Julie Barnhill and Phil and Kay Robertson about their favorite Christmas memories. (And yes—they’ll hear about the Robertson’s recipe for cooked squirrel!).
“Because of Bethlehem”
Originally Released 2016
28:00 special available via FTP
Max Lucado loves Christmas! Because somewhere, someone will ask the Christmas questions, and the answers Max shares are sure to give us all hope! And in this special, Max, the master story-teller, tells stories from his childhood, his family, his life—stories to draw the listener to the Christ of Christmas … in a narrative drama whose characters will take you to the biblical scene: With Mary and Joseph as the innkeeper turns them away, in the temple court when Herod demands a search for the baby Jesus, as Simeon makes his way through the crowds of Jerusalem to see Jesus! And the question: “Would you let Jesus love you?”
“One Perfect Life: Christmas Edition”
Originally Released 2014
2 specials/25:00 each or combined for one 50:00 special
One Perfect Life by John MacArthur is the setting for the story of Jesus Christ in the very words of Scripture, blending all four Gospels in a harmonized life of Christ in two Christmas specials. Both fully dramatized narratives depict the persons characterized in the Gospel account. Each special is unique to itself and proclaims the Gospel message clearly through the birth and life of Christ.
Narrated and dramatized from the very words of Scripture and with descriptive commentary by John MacArthur we present:
“A Son is Given ” (25:00) … heralding the birth of John the Baptist and the astounding announcement from the angel Gabriel to Mary of the coming birth of Christ. It presents a picture of the precious time between Mary and Elizabeth, Mary’s Magnificat and Zacharias’ benediction, the worship and praise of the shepherds who journey to Bethlehem to proclaim the given Son. It is Christ coming to earth!
“Immanuel, God With Us” (25:00) … transports us to Bethlehem just after the birth of Christ to those days of Herod’s decree that all children two years of age are to be killed, of Jesus as a young boy teaching in the temple, of His baptism by John the Baptist signaling the beginning of His earthly ministry—culminating in His last hours on the Cross, His death, burial and resurrection as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
“From the Manger to the Cross” (50:00) … combines the two Christmas specials into one seamless dramatization of Christ’s coming to earth to His resurrection.
