About the Book: One of the most elegant Christmas gift books ever Based on the gospels of Matthew and Luke, it relates the Christmas story as seen by each person who was there Explores the emotions, thoughts, and interrelationships of all of the people in the Christmas story What a great gesture of compassion for God to give His only Son to fallen man. The arrival of our Lord was not in a fitting location for a king, but He began changing lives immediately. Richard Exley has crafted this mosaic of ten vivid and charming vignettes of the very real and human people whose lives were first touched by the Savior: Mary, Joseph, Elizabeth, the shepherds, the wise men. The vibrant, profoundly moving artwork brings the stories to life, and makes this book an instant heirloom.
Wanda's Thoughts: I received this lovely book a number of years ago as a Christmas gift, and always enjoy reading it over the Christmas season. It is a collection of beautifully written vignettes that will lead you through the Nativity. Based on Scripture, it is written in such a way that will allow you to share the thoughts and feelings of Mary, Joseph, Elizabeth, the innkeeper, and so many more, who were there before and after the birth of Jesus.
I highly recommend this truly beautiful book. It would make a special gift for the Christmas season. 5 stars.
