A star, a stable, angels, shepherds, kings and, at the heart of it all, a mother and her baby. . .

Jane Williams' meditations on the birth of Jesus take you deep into the story of the original Christmas, as depicted in some of the world's greatest paintings.

These profoundly perceptive reflections on the different ways in which artists have imagined the nativity will deepen and refresh your appreciation of the real meaning of Christmas, and the message of love, joy, and peace that it speaks to all the world.

"Dr. Williams' prose is erudite and engaging. . . . What she does so exquisitely is to illumine, as only a teacher and theologian can, the things we may have missed or forgotten."
