This week on The Land and the Book, we invite you to slow down. That’s right, slow down, engage your imagination, and enter into the stories of the characters of Christmas. We promise you’ll break free from the familiar, and discover something you never knew about the story you and I've always heard. The Characters of Christmas, with guest Daniel Darling, on this week’s edition of The Land and the Book.
