About the BookBook: The Unannounced Christmas Visitor
Author: Patrick Higgins
Genre: Christian fiction/Christmas
Release Date: November 18, 2014
What if angels really did come from the most unlikely of places? That’s exactly what happens in this heartwarming story, set in a homeless community in Anywhere USA. Sent to Planet Earth by his Maker, disguised as a homeless person, Enoch was on a mission: to rescue a man whose life was slowly but steadily spiraling out of control.
Inspired by Hebrews 13:2, “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it,” this story will stir your soul like never before, guaranteed! 2016 IPA (INTERNATIONAL PUBLISHER AWARDS) GOLD MEDAL AWARD WINNER.

“Yahweh, Jehovah God, change the overall heart of
this gathering place of believers to resemble the
heart of Yeshua rather than the unconverted world.”
I loved the interaction within the Jensen family. John, once a loving husband/father and devout Christian, had become disconnected from his family, standoffish and argumentative in recent months. Lydia was open to God’s working in her life and began reaching out to Enoch and the homeless group in the park. Lydia knew that “her Savior was more interested in the condition of the heart and how His followers treated others, than how many Christian songs and Bible verses they had memorized.”
Enoch was a fascinating character and I adored him. His mission from God wasn’t clearly revealed at first, so he had spent a good amount of time with the homeless group, ministering to them in incredible spiritual ways. The author brought this group to life, making me care about them. Then as Lydia, and later John, reached out to them, the story was hard to put down. I loved the impact of the night John spent with them in the cold park.
“Until you’re put in a position of total dependency on
Christ and not your own abilities, you’ll never truly know
what it means to be fully alive as one of His followers.”
- LeroyThis story clearly presents the gospel message. There are lengthy passages of dialogue – teaching, sermonizing, etc. – but the intrinsic value of the message reigns supreme. The story illuminates the real meaning of Christmas, perfect for the season or anytime of the year. An Unexpected Christmas Visitor would make a great gift for a new Christian, a seeker, or someone who has grown complacent in their faith.
