The First Christmas
Thomas D Williams, Frank Fraser
(Sophia Institute Press, Oct. 17, 2019)
Lovingly illustrated by celebrated artist Frank Fraser, Thomas D. Williams's magnificent poem The First Christmas tells of the monumental event that Christians have celebrated for more than two thousand years: the birth of Jesus in a stable in Bethlehem. Replete with glorious angels, joyful shepherds, indifferent townspeople, humble kings, delightful donkeys, cattle, sheep, and, of course, Joseph, Mary, and the adorable baby Jesus, these sublime pages leave Santa Claus behind and bring to vivid life the tender, moving, true story of Christmas. If you love the classic poem Twas the Night Before Christmas, you'll treasure The First Christmas and place it at the center of your family's annual Christmas celebrations.
