Book Description: Christmastime is filled with thoughts of family, friends, and faith. It is a time to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday and to celebrate the birth of the Savior Jesus Christ. Stars Were Gleaming is the perfect way to set the tone for your holiday celebrations by pairing inspirational poetry, holy scripture, and uplifting quotations with original artwork by renowned artist Greg Olsen.
The centerpiece of the book is a new painting, created especially for this book, that features the most holy of nights, the evening of Jesus's birth. Gathered around the manger are the familiar faces of Mary and Joseph, the wise men and the shepherds, and peeking through the window is the bright heavenly star gleaming in the night sky. This beautiful book will be a treasure for many seasons to come.
My thoughts: This book is beautiful. Greg Olsen is a master artist and this book depicts scenes of the Christmas Season. Each page features scenes from his artwork and have scriptures and quotes that give deeper meaning to the pictures.
This book is perfect for a coffee table. I could never tire of looking at the wonderful artwork.
