“Jesus and Santa are old friends…”Grampa told me.
SANTA THE KING is a marvelous children’s Christmas fantasy that takes the reader from Bethlehem to the North Pole. King Melchior of Sheba gives the infant jesus his gift–and God gives the wise man one in return.
Pat Mcgauley’s timely story resolves the ‘problem’ children often have with understanding how the spiritual concept of Christmas and the wonderment of Santa Claus fit together.When Jesus was born, the idea of gift-giving became a tradition which would warm the hearts of children for all generations.
In Santa’s dream, an almighty voice spoke to him through the smile of baby Jesus: “Go and do my work, Saint Nicholas. Make every child on earth as happy as you can on my birthday.”
