About This Show

Kirk H. Neely’s Comfort and Joy—Nine Christmas Stories, tells of the redemptive power of Christmas, harkening back to O. Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi.” Along the way, he introduces us to Sara Williams, a young woman who carries on the family legacy of sweetgrass basket making but whose life has gone off track into drugs and prostitution. The story “Joe’s Tree,” follows a Christmas tree on a miraculous journey from a child’s grave to a frat house to a children’s shelter. And together with schoolteacher Mary Alice McCall, readers learn how slaves once used handmade quilts as beacons of hope.

He joins Dr. Edgar to talk about Comfort and Joy, and his latest book, A Good Mule is Hard to Find. Since 1996, Dr. Neely has served as Senior Pastor of Morningside Baptist Church in Spartanburg.
