A King James Christmas: Biblical Selections with Illustrations from Around the World

Edited by Catherine Schuon and Michael Fitzgerald. World Wisdom/Wisdom Tales, $19.95 (80p) ISBN 978-1-937786-03-8
Fitzgerald and Schuon compile verses from the King James Bible into three sections: the birth, childhood, and teachings of Jesus. The book is attractively illustrated with prints of Schuon’s paintings, which pay homage to early European Renaissance artists in their muted blues, golds, and reds; well-known European Renaissance artists such as Fra Angelico plus a few pieces from Asia and the Mediterranean also appear. Synonyms for unfamiliar words or usages are inserted parenthetically in the text. An attractive resource for older children. Ages 8–up. (Oct.)
