A snowy night, a warm cabin, and a boy who hears the Christmas story told for the first timebeginning with Creation and ending with the Resurrection
A classic Christmas picture book, One Wintry Night tells the story of a mountain boy who is injured in a snowstorm and seeks refuge in a cabin. While he waits out the storm, the woman who lives there tells him the Christmas story. In a magnificent blend of a contemporary setting with the history of Gods redeeming love, Ruth Graham created a wonderful and unique version of the Christmas story. Breathtakingly illustrated by renowned artist Richard Jesse Watson, One Wintry Night is the perfect gift for the young and the young-at-heart that will fascinate both those who have heard the Bible story many times and those who know only a few details.
Ruth Bell Graham has written the perfect Christmas book . . . with imaginative, stunning pictures. It is a book children and adults will love. The story is tried and true, well-told, and important. I can see children around the world sitting with a parent or grandparent saying, Then what happened? or, Turn the page. Lets see the next picture. I love this story and I love this book. Barbara Bush

Well written and very realistic in its setting and dialogue. The warmth and love transcended the cold weather and isolation.
just me3 Stars Out Of 5January 16, 2013just meI love this story. The pictures are fantastic. I was disappointed that it was not the size of the big picture book that I already have. I ordered this copy to give as a gift. I'm not sure I will gift it. I will look for the bigger one.
