Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0758606168, Paperback)Author and historian Paul Maier aims to "return the Christmas focus where it belongs"--on the story and spirit surrounding Jesus' birth. Thus, The Very First Christmas doesn't follow the prescribed children's Christmas-book themes--with fairy-tale winter settings in quaint, old European towns. Maier instead sets the story in the American West, where a curious 8-year-old boy named Christopher wants a "real" bedtime story. His mother then tells him the miraculous story of the Nativity. (Ages 4 to 8)

Examines the Nativity story as the origin of Christmas, viewing it in both scriptural and secular contexts.
