The Christmas Story Book

Compiled by Ineke Verschuren

430 pp.  

Floris Books


Published:  September 1988


These stories tell of the experience of people who lived at the time of the birth of the Christ child, and who—each in their own way—sought to worship the newborn king. This book is a colorful collection carefully chosen to show the spirit of Christmas in many different facets.

The stories are divided into five sections: Advent, the birth of the Christ child, Christmas night, Christmas in the world, and the time of the three kings. Included are stories by Hans Christian Andersen, Leonid Andreiev, Jane Clement, Maxim Gorki, Gerhard Klein, Selma Lagerlöf, Jeanna Oterdahl, Peter Rosegger, Ruth Sawyer, Edzard Schaper, Jakob Streit, and Henry Van Dyke.
