For twenty-five years, readers have been moved by beloved author
Francine Rivers’s tale of little Timmy O’Neil, a foster child with a
very mysterious shoe box. This anniversary edition of Timmy’s story has
been beautifully redesigned for the holiday season to include a new
five-part Advent devotional from Francine, as well as her favorite
holiday recipes and the entire Christmas story from Matthew and Luke,
all accented by gold foil interior artwork.
At the center of this
beautiful package is the short, tender story of Timmy and his shoe box.
At first glance, it’s nothing special—just an ordinary box with a red
lid and the words Running Shoes printed on the side. But Timmy
carries it with him wherever he goes, and when people ask him what’s
inside, he smiles and says, “Just things.” As Timmy settles into his
new, loving home, he remains unwilling to share the secrets of his shoe
box . . . until the beauty of the church Nativity pageant inspires him
to open his heart and give the most precious gift of all.
