Twelve glowing tableaux illuminate the timeless beauty of the Christmas story in a kaleidoscope of stained glass. Beginning on the road to Bethlehem, scene by scene the pages portray the events surrounding the birth of Jesus, ending with the Holy Family's flight by night to Egypt. Fiona French's images combine with words taken from the Authorized King James version of the New Testament to create a classic celebration of Christmas.
