Keith Hewitt is back with a third volume of clever nativity dramas in which he adapts biblical Christmas stories to popular television programs. In the same way Jesus communicated in a context that people of his time could relate to, Hewitt presents four sharp-witted takeoffs on something our culture can really relate to -- TV. The humorous treatments of these biblical narratives will hold people's attention and breathe new life into traditional nativity texts.

All four plays are specifically designed to be produced in churches and can be easily staged by congregations of almost any size. Props are simple and easy to find.

The four plays in this third volume are popular television shows from right now:
"Psyched in Bethlehem" (45 minutes)
"Everybody Loves Joseph" (45 minutes)
"Big Bang Bethlehem" (50 minutes)
"Burned in Bethlehem" (40 minutes)

These dramas are delightful and bring a down-to-earth perspective, drawing on everyday life experiences through various television shows. It is a pleasure to see someone bring a refreshing aspect of God's message through creative mediums such as these.

We have been doing Keith Hewitt's plays for two years now. I love them, and I want to encourage him to keep writing the plays. Our church family loves them but more importantly we have been able to get people from the community in and to share God's word.
