Rev. Dr. Steve Burt, the Congregational minister known as The Christmas Story Pastor, has been sharing his emotional holiday stories--modern parables revealing the true meaning of Christmas - for 40 years in print and in read-aloud programs. Millions have heard him read his stories on radio and television, with millions more seeing them in Family Circle or the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Here are 12 of his best, read by the Christmas Story pastor himself. Don't listen without a handkerchief.

It's like hearing them read by the author on radio again. Only took 13 years to get it as a read-aloud in the author's voice. Powerful stories like these evoke the meaning of Christmas without being preachy. One was in Chicken Soup and another in Family Circle, but those were print, not audio.
12 stories offer a variety of ways to grasp the meaning of Christmas.
