Synopsis

A King James Christmas Biblical Selections with Illustrations from Around the World by Catherine Schuon

A Christmas Reader promises to become a new Christmas classic for the entire family. It is excerpts from King James Version of Gospels that are woven together in an easy-to-follow story of Jesus' birth and infancy, including Annunciation, the Visitation, the adoration of the Magi, the presentation of Jesus in the temple, and the flight into Egypt.

Reviews

Fitzgerald and Schuon compile verses from the King James Bible into three sections: the birth, childhood, and teachings of Jesus. The book is attractively illustrated with prints of Schuon's paintings, which pay homage to early European Renaissance artists in their muted blues, golds, and reds
