NOTE: This is in downloadable PDF format - not a printed book.
A Christmas Carol in Reverse is the story of Benny, a professing Christian man who has embraced the world's idea of Christmas as a time of food, festivities, and gifts, but has no thought for the true meaning of Christmas. Through dreams of a Christmas past, a present-day mission field and a visit to Hell, he comes to realize that "Christmas never should have been about all the gifts and festivities. Those are just a reminder of the gift Jesus already gave to us when He came to earth!" Benny's story encourages us to open our spiritual eyes to see what really matters in the light of eternity. This drama was written with the hopes of drawing souls to Christ and bringing glory to Him Who is worthy of ALL of our praise!

Common Problem - Thursday, September 5, 2019 AnonymousOur church did this program because I loved the lesson to be learned. So many name the name of Christ, but don't really know Him and the simple beauty of the Christmas story. I had a 9 year old girl show up the Wednesday night before Christmas, and she became upset with me as I taught that this was what Christmas was about. She believed it was like this story--just parties and presents and get-togethers. -Diane

Consider this play for your school - Tuesday, July 7, 2009 AnonymousThis play is very good for students in Grades 1 through 8. I enjoyed reading the play and our faculty is considering using it. -Anonymous
Great play - Monday, January 1, 2001 AnonymousWe just did 'A Christmas Carol in Reverse' the Sunday before Christmas and it was a BIG hit. Most of the parts were small which allowed for a lot of first time participation, sets were simple and scene 6 done before the door to hell with dimmed lights rocked the house. Highly recommended! -jodi
