Wonderful images of the very first Christmas- of the baby Jesus lying in a manger, of the sheperds' astonishment, of the heavenly host praising God- are depicted in lavish color by acclaimed artist Michael Dudash. Every page walks us through the story in its setting, reminding us of the message of Christmas: that God himself cam to earth and dwelt among us, to save us and give us hope and eternal life. This lovley book brings the Christmas story from the Bible to life and it is meant to be shared with friends, family, neighbors and co-workers and can be passed down in families for decades to come. This stunning book is a gift that helps the reading to celebrate the heart of Christmas, the birth of Jesus, our Savior.
