The story of God's coming among us as one like ourselves is a story that gains power as it is retold. Like a blossoming flower or growing vine, the mystry of Christ's birth slowly unfolds within each generation. "She Laid Him in a Manger" presents the birth of Jesus as told in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. With Scripture text translated by Fr. Harry Hagan and woodcut reproductions from a 16th-century missal, this small volume retells this wonderful story and reminds us today that we belong to a great tradition and unsurpassable promise celebrated in the mystery of Christ.
