      We have this on our kids shelf. I picked it up from the bookstore when I was in seminary. It bores the kids. They are too young to appreciate it but it is full of Canadian nostalgia. Young William has dreams which re-image the nativity in his contemporary Northern setting n the 1930s. These dreams provide different images of the Holy Family and those who welcome or reject them.

      There are warm and beautiful traits about “A Northern Nativity”, 1976, that I treasure strongly. The way we approach spirituality varies widely; no matter if it is religious-based, or directly spiritual.

      In general I like Kurelek's Canadian paintings. I particularly enjoy this book because it captures life across much of Canada and presenting the nativity in a way that is relevant here. I have given this book to many Canadian friends.
