From the creative and well-­seasoned imagination of author, Ron Corcoran, comes the second volume in the Almost True Christmas Stories series. If you like colorful characters in fun-­filled stories that are close-­to-­true, mostly-­but not-­quite-­true, or darned-­near totally This second Volume is another collection of memorable holiday-­season adventures that inform, enlighten and entertain young and young-­at-­heart readers about what life was once like a hundred-­and-­forty years ago and what life could be like in the animal kingdom today.

No doubt there have been others like me throughout history who have bumbled, stumbled and fumbled their way through life because they were looking through curious eyes - and not necessarily through practical, comprehending eyes.

How should we react when those whom we trust to teach faithful biblical Christianity fail us? As Christians what are we to do when the church embraces and blesses a false gospel? Where does loyalty lie—with the institution and its leaders or with Jesus, Head and King of His church? A former pastor in the Anglican Church of Canada describes how he and his congregation faced these daunting questions, struggled to discern the truth and made their painful choice. "Three forces combined are progressively disintegrating the Anglican Church of Canada: relativistic liberal theology, idolatrous institutional defensiveness, and manipulative episcopal autocracy. This honest, restrained, sombre narrative illustrates all three. The scene that unfolds is unspeakably sad, and brings only dishonour to our Lord Jesus Christ.­" —J.­I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College "The word betrayed comes readily to the lips of many who were so deeply immersed in the life, worship and witness of the . . .
