In the Dark Streets Shineth

In the Dark Streets ShinethIn the Dark Streets Shineth by David McCullough

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In 2009, renowned author David McCullough joined the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's Christmas broadcast and recounted the meeting of Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill on Christmas Eve in 1941. This book puts his words in print with beautiful pictures of the actual events. Also included is a history of the songs "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas."

This book includes a DVD of the broadcast which has been shown on PBS this Christmas season.

This is an inspiring book that lovers of history will especially like. I enjoyed thinking about the importance of remembering to take time to "arm our hearts" when life seems perilous. Wise words from wise men of Christmases past.
