The Nativity Story DVD

The Nativity Story DVD

This DVD, released in 2007, beautifully recreates the Annunciation and the arduous journey of Mary and Joseph to give birth to Baby Jesus. Filmed in the village of Matera, Italy (a locale that has remained virtually untouched by modern progress and also served as the backdrop for Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ") and Quarzazate, Morocco, this film strives for authenticity in telling the Bible's most treasured tale. I highly recommend adding this DVD to your Christmas collection.

 

The Gospel of John DVD

The Gospel of John DVD

Veteran British filmmaker Philip Saville directs the religious epic The Gospel of John, a production of the Canadian company Visual Bible International. This three-hour drama attempts to accurately follow the Gospel According to John, written sometime during the first century. The gospel contains four segments: an introduction to the nature of Jesus Christ; testimony by disciples and the presence of miracles; the Last Supper and crucifixion; and the appearance of the risen Christ. Henry Ian Cusick plays Jesus and Christopher Plummer provides voice-over narration. This DVD is a perfect follow-up to The Nativity Story DVD recommended above. 

 

Art of the Creche: Nativities From Around the World iconby James L. Govan

Art of the CrecheOne of the most enduring and universal Christmas customs is the representation of the story of Christ's birth in the form of a creche, or nativity scene. Art of the Creche conveys the worldwide appeal of this tradition, explored through over 100 exquiste nativities created by the indigenous cultures of more than 70 countries. This is a delightful album tht will appeal to anyone interested in folk art, cultural traditions and collectables.

 

Friends of the Creche Society

Friends of the Creche is a society dedicated to furthering the tradition of the creche. Friends of the Creche is a nonsectarian, nonpolitical, and nonprofit organization for those who collect, exhibit, study, create, or simply treasure Christmas Nativity scenes.
