Original Poems for Christmas
Award-winning author and retired Salvation Army minister, Howard Webber, brings us a treasury of original poems for Christmas. As he brilliantly captures key moments from the Nativity, applying them to our lives today, you will find this age-old narrative coming to life again this season.
Following a career in the NHS as a Medical Laboratory Scientist, during which time he recommitted his life to Jesus, Howard entered training to become a Salvation Army officer/ minister, together with his
wife Judy. Having been ordained/ commissioned, the next 30 years were spent in corps/church leadership and as an itinerant evangelist and corps/church planter.
Howard’s first book, Meeting Jesus ñ Inspiring stories of modern-day evangelism, won Christianity (now Premier Christianity) magazine’s ‘Book of the Year’ award. This was followed by No Longer I? comprising
of stories and a study of Paul’s words in Galatians 2:20. Father of five children and six grandchildren, Howard now lives in retirement with Judy in Bournemouth.
"These poems, centred on the age-old story of the Nativity, abound in novel insights which warm the
heart, amuse, inspire, and sometimes even startle."

"…a favourite that you will want to open again every year as the celebration of Christ’s birth draws near."
