Product Description

Meet the Christ-follower who inspired the idea of Santa Claus! In this 25-day Advent devotional, you'll be inspired by the faith of Nicholas of Myra - a man who was not only a gift-giver in a literal sense, but the benefactor of our best-loved celebration: Christmas. Each reading features Scripture and a historical vignette from St. Nick's life.

    This was a wonderful advent read. It was both interesting and inspirational. How wonderful it would be if we could recapture this perspective on St. Nick as opposed to the commercialism of Santa Claus.

    I did not expect the book that I received. I was pleasantly surprised, and enjoyed it so much. I learned about St. Nicholas life and understand how Santa Clause reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Ann Nichols
Located in: Washington DC
Submitted: September 01, 2012

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I’m a student of history. To learn how people lived before our times – and how they impacted our lives - is one of my favorite things. That and super dark chocolate; dogs and cats of all shapes, sizes and colors; and a good novel on a cold winter’s night.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  When my editor at Barbour asked me to put my extensive research about St. Nicholas’s life and times into a devotional form about his faith, “The Faith of St. Nick: An Advent Devotional” was “born.”

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  That everyone will get to know the really remarkable Christian man behind the whimsical legend.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Oh my… it’s been life changing. When I took a break - what I thought would be a short break! - from writing novels I had no idea that I was actually embarking upon a major event in my life. Before these nearly two decades of research into the life and times of St. Nicholas (and that includes many others who lived during his times) there was a side of me that was wary of early Christian saints and particularly of those who lived during the 3rd, 4th and 5th centuries. I've since learned the debt of gratitude, thanksgiving and trust we owe them. Their witness is powerful!

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:   This book is just the start. There’s so much more to St. Nicholas – I’m not done telling his story yet. Merry Christmas! Thanks so much!
