Santa Claus: Is He for Your Child?

Front Cover
Lulu.com, Aug 1, 2011 - Religion - 134 pages
Who or what is Santa Claus? What is his relationship to Saint Nicholas, Kris Kringle, and other Christmas-time gift bearers? What is the message of Santa? This book traces the lineage of the "child's saint" back to the alleged historical bishop of Myra up to the jolly saint in red garb that graces our modern Christmases. The book paints a stark contrast to the Gospel message of forgiveness freely given. "This book gives a very interesting history of how the myth of St. Nicholas/Santa Clause compares with the gospel message of Jesus Christ. I was amazed at the similarities but truly wonder if the two confuses children or one is to overshadow the other in this commercial world." Doris Costagliola for BookIdeas.com
