Product Description

The true meaning of Christmas isn't found in the glitter and gifts. It's not on the tree or tucked under it. But it can be found in a place of honor in most Christian homes: the Christmas crèche, or Christmas Nativity scene, first created by Francis nearly 800 years ago. Each piece of the Nativity has its own story and meaning in Franciscan history and Christian spirituality. Take a closer look at the crèche and learn why Christmas is central to Franciscan spirituality and how you can find a deeper meaning in the simplest of seasonal decorations. This small-sized, beautifully illustrated book makes a perfect Christmas gift!

Publisher's Description

The true meaning of Christmas isn't found in the glitter and gifts. It's not on the tree or tucked under it. It won't be served with the cookies and eggnog. But it can be found in a place of honor in most Christian homes: the Christmas manager scene. Each piece of the Nativity has its own story and meaning in Franciscan history and Christian spirituality. Take a closer look at the crèche and learn why Christmas is central to Franciscan spirituality and how you can find a deeper meaning in the simplest of seasonal decorations.

Editorial Reviews

"Touching, uplifting, inspiring, comforting, and challenging, this deceptively small book reaches for the heart of the reader and the heart of Christmas. Kathleen M. Carroll, managing editor of books for Franciscan Media, leads the reader's focus to the deeper meanings of the icons of Christmas as perceived and savored by Franciscan spirituality. Jesus, Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, the magi, angels, villagers, musicians, the star and the animals in turn are brought to mind, each chapter preceded by a pertinent passage of Scripture. The author's reflective, conversational style and homespun examples are engaging. The content is rich in meaning and solid in its sources, richly drawn from St. Francis of Assisi: Omnibus of Sources (Cincinnati: St. Anthony Messenger Press, 2008) and writings of several Franciscan scholars. This title is highly recommended for parish, seminary, catechetical centers, pastoral theology collections of academic libraries and for high school libraries."—Frances O'Dell, O.S.F., Catholic Library World
