About the Book



Newspaper reporter Hope Jensen uncovers the secret behind the 'Christmas Jars,' glass jars filled with coins and bills anonymously given to people in nee



Book Synopsis



Christmas Jars has sold more than half a million copies worldwide and was a New York Times best-selling novel. This beautiful hardcover collector's edition contains the complete text of the bestselling fictional holiday favorite as well as more than twenty true, inspiring stories of people who have experienced the Christmas Jar miracle in their own lives by either giving or receiving an anonymous jar full of coins.

Hope Jensen is a young, single woman and an aspiring newspaper writer, and when she receives a much-needed but anonymous Christmas gift, she's determined to find her benefactor. That search leads her to an unusual family with a longstanding Christmas tradition. Sensing a front-page feature article, Hope desperately wants to publish their story, but doing so would be a breach of trust. What she decides to do will change her life forever.

A classic Christmas tale, Christmas Jars has sparked a national phenomenon of giving and a community tradition of generous outreach across the nation.



Review Quotes




"A journalist happens upon a human interest story that winds up teaching her lessons about love and forgiveness and renewing her own faith in human kindness. On Christmas Eve, twenty-something Hope Jensen is quietly grieving the recent loss of her adoptive mother when her apartment is robbed. The one bright spot in the midst of Hope's despair is a small jar full of money someone has anonymously left on her doorstep. Eager to learn the source of this unexpected generosity, Hope uses her newswoman instincts to find other recipients of "Christmas jars," digging until her search leads her to the family who first began the tradition of saving a year's worth of spare change to give to someone in need at the holiday....The heart of this novella is its transformative message about the power of giving, a compelling theme that calls to mind books like Pay It Forward and The Kingdom Assignment."--Publishers Weekly-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Beautiful hardcover collector's edition. A truly classic Christmas tale that is both inspired and inspiring, "Christmas Jars" has sparked a national phenomenon of giving and a community tradition of generous outreach across the nation and is unreservedly recommended for personal, community, and academic library collections." --Richard Paul Evans "Midwest Book Review" (12/18/2017 12:00:00 AM)

"Beautifully written. I believe the Christmas Jars tradition will change lives."--Richard Paul Evans--Richard Paul Evans "Publishers Weekly"
