Book of the Month

The Story of St. Nicholas: More Than Reindeer and a Red Suit (E ODDEN)

Buried beneath the legends and tales of Santa Claus lies a story of a steadfast, godly man who refused to deny Christ.

 

 

 

The True Saint Nicholas: Why He Matters to Christmas (921 NICHOLAS)

Forget the legends of a jolly old elf.  The real story is much more exciting, complete with emperors, knights, villains, shipwrecks, kidnappings, treasure, and dark dungeons.  In short, read what we can [reasonably] know about this saintly man.
