St. Nicholas: A Closer Look at Christmas


Four years in the writing, this is a book of prodigious research, yet it reads as a story that’s hard to put down. It is more than merely stories, it offers a roadmap for parents seeking ways in which they and their families may recapture the spiritual dimension of the season. And it shows how all these other derivative figures such as the Belsnickel, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, and Santa Claus came to be.

Co-authored with James Rosenthal. 280 pages in glorious color. A gorgeous, 9 3/4″ x 12″ coffee-table / jumbo hardback. 2005. Published by Thomas Nelson.
