The purpose of The Gift is to retell the timeless story of Christ's birth in a way that will speak today with unique power and immediacy. To this end, it combines the masterful paintings of Ron DiCianni, the vivid word-pictures of pastor-writer Kent Hughes and the brilliant calligraphy of Timothy Botts. The result is a rare book that is really more than a book, for it is a work of art and beauty that touches the heart and soul and mind of all who open its pages. 7 full-page paintings and artist's insights, 7 meditations on the events surrounding Jesus' birth. 48 pages.
