Product Description

Christmas Eve, 1941. Mere days after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt met at the White House. As war raged throughout the world, the two leaders delivered a powerful message of hope that still resonates today.

Bestselling author and renowned historian David McCullough relates a compelling story about the spirit of Christmas and the power of light to shine in difficult, dangerous times. Also sharing the stories behind the songs "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas," this beautifully designed book is filled with historic photographs and uplifting messages that will bring the Christmas spirit home to your family.

In the Dark Streets Shineth also includes a DVD of David McCullough's presentation of this story at the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's 2009 Christmas concert.

This book is a compelling, quick read with an inspiring message of hope that would make a wonderful gift for anyone this holiday season! Reading the Christmas messages of two very prominent men from history during rough times not only in the U.S, but around the world was really quite interesting! David McCullough did a great job as he usually does!

an excellent addition to your library

I was expecting more of an actual story, and was a bit disappointed to hear that it only takes about 15 mins. to read. But this is an amazing book. Such a powerful message and story. I was near tears when I learned the story behind the song "I'll Be Home For Christmas". It's a great book to share with friends and family.
