- Publisher This is the heartwarming true story of a family that discovers in 1943 that the nativity set they've purchased has come with two figurines of the baby Jesus. Fearing that someone was cheated out of the most important figurine in a nativity set, the mother cajoles the store owner into putting a sign on the shelf: "If you're missing Baby Jesus, call 7162." On a frozen Christmas eve, someone calls-a single mother without food for her kids or heating oil for the furnace. Although she didn't buy a nativity set, she saw the sign and trusted that it was God's sign for her. Word spreads and neighbors hurry to her aid, even providing a tree and presents. The true meaning of Christmas is restored, not just for a woman and her children, but for an entire community. If You're Missing Baby Jesus: A True Story That Embraces the Spirit of Christmas is sure to become a holiday classic.
