Item description for The Night of the Child: Photographs from The Upper Room Museum Nativity Collection by Benson, Robert Benson & R. Benson...

Blending word and image, The Night of the Child offers a spiritual feast for the mind and heart, the eye and ear. Scripture, thoughtful text, and detailed photographic images from the Nativity Collection of The Upper Room Museum in Nashville, Tennessee, provide a new and fresh approach to the wonder of Incarnation. Over many years The Upper Room Museum has collected Nativity sets from donors from around the world. These visual reminders of the birth of Jesus teach us that the love of God knows no boundaries. The Nativity sets represent many cultures and nations. The variety of materials range from clay to gourds, thorn wood to porcelain to a coconut shell and a starfish. The Night of the Child shows us these Nativity scenes and offers such detailed images that we see in the isolated details a word of proclamation coming from an American Southwest Joseph, serenity radiating from a Bolivian Mary, wisdom from Korean magi, joy from those who visit the baby Jesus. These visual details connect us with sisters and brothers in Christ from around the world and in many different eras. Robert Benson's thoughtful reflection provides a spiritual oasis in the midst of the busyness of the Christmas season. Benson moves us to see God's promise and the faith, hope

Reviews - What do customers think about The Night of the Child: Photographs from The Upper Room Museum Nativity Collection?

Beautifully written as usual  Dec 12, 2001
Robert Benson has been a wonderful addition to my prayer life. He writes words that I could only think in my heart. This volume from the United Methodist Upper Room is filled with pictures of their Nativity creche collection. Mr. Benson writes about Joseph, Mary and other participants in the nativity story. The book is one I will read and reread each Advent season. It would be an excellent gift for friends and family.
