    the real meaning of saint nicholas

    "the true saint nichololas" is a wonderful christmas story that is not only legend but fact and shows were we get santa claus from. william bennett has researched this wonderful person who grew up in a poor town and was a person of great faith and late at night would put gold coins into peoples stockings so they could get there lifes back on their feet again. william bennetts the true saint nicholas is a wonderful christmas book and would make a great gift for the holidays and its small enough to mail to your friends and family that are out of town. this teachs about faith and giving and its a great story that I didnt know about.

    Another Heart Winning Book By William Bennett!

    First of all, I must admit being a big fan of William Bennett. Years ago I first read his "Book of Virtues," and then later on his, "The Moral Compass."
    The first of these was a stalwart companion as I raised two sons from 1973-1998. I learned a great deal about the role of parents in the many pages of his books. I also gleaned an inner sense the author's own personal devotion. I hold the works of William Bennett next to the works of C.S. Lewis (ie. The Great Divorce and others).
    Now on to Saint Nicholas. I have always had a fascination about the man who came to be known as Santa Claus in the 20th century.
    Reading "The True Saint Nicholas" was like reading a good account of Joan of Arc, or Saint Francis of Assisi. This man, Nicholas, was a real person with a good and generous heart. I loved his story. I also loved to read about all the legends that grew about and around this man. This book is a good story of history and traditions through centuries. It is a very good read.
    I will re-read it every Advent Season.
    I gave this book as a gift to our eldest son and his wife to have as a read for themselves and our young grandson. By the way, you do not have to be a person of faith to enjoy this book. Nicholas is a person of history...a good man who did good works. His example is still with us today in the 21st century. This book is a keeper!

    The unknown Saint

    Have you ever wondered if there is more behind the story of Saint Nicholas/ Santa Claus ? I have , so I was very interested when my mom spotted this book at the Library . I would recommend this book to everyone , in fact my Grandmother is reading it , and having much enjoyment as I have had . This book explains the whole story of a giving, loving, and caring bishop in 128 pages , which to me is unbelievable . I think that if you read this book it will show you the true tale which can bring you, and the rest of your family much joy during the christmas season or any season . I don't want to give all the facts away so I encourage you to read this book as I have .
