Scott Johnson Interview

Princess Reviews, Scott A. Johnson

1.     When is Jeremy's Christmas Journey to be released?
Jeremy’s Christmas Journey was released October 9, 2012. It is three separate products: a book and musical CD (ISBN 9781462111244), hardback book only (ISBN 9781462111220) and CD only (UPC 9781462111237).

2.   Who is Jeremy?
Jeremy is the main character of the book. He is a paralyzed 12 year old boy who struggles with his afflictions and with finding faith in Christ.

3.   What is Jeremy's Christmas Journey about?
Jeremy has a remarkable journey where he experiences powerful testimonies of Christ from notable characters from the bible like Mary, James, Lazarus and others. This experience takes place in an ancient courtroom and the characters are witnesses for Christ. This journey profoundly influences and changes his life forever.

4. Which is greater, the journey or the destination?
I believe they are equally important. The journey leads to the destination and provides invaluable experiences that mold us into the person we need to be at the end of the journey. The destination is the reward for enduring the journey.

5. What is learned in Jeremy's Christmas Journey?
The book and music teach us that despite difficult challenges we can accomplish great things if we put our faith in Christ.

6. What does Christmas mean to you?
I love Christmas. I love the spirit that is present at that time of year, Christmas stories and music, the smell of Christmas trees, etc. As people focus more on Christ, rather than the commercialization of Christmas, it brings out the best in many of us. Christmas is a time to reflect upon what Christ’s birth means to you. For me, Christmas means Christ.

7. What was your all time favorite Christmas present?
I can’t say that I have an all-time favorite. I actually enjoy giving presents more than receiving them. My wife says I am hard to shop for because I don’t ask for anything. However, I really enjoy when my children make me something special, or when my wife goes out her way to surprise me.

8. Is Christmas your favorite holiday?
Absolutely, for the reasons I listed during question six and more.

9. Are there any other books we should look forward to from you?
I will be releasing a nutrition-related book through Cedar Fort, Inc. early in 2013.

10. Thank you! Is there anything else you'd like to say?
I hope that readers and listeners will make Jeremy’s Christmas Journey a new Christmas tradition for their families. And that they will read it and listen to the CD throughout the year to invite Christ in to their homes more frequently. A Christ-centered home is a happy home.
