Among the stories at the heart of the lands of the Christian cultures none is better known, or more deeply loved, than the few biblican verses that tell the story of the birth of a child. This humble Christmas story annually inspires countless versions and variations of itself, embellished by pageants, poetry, and music.

After many years as a Presbyterian clergyman, in 1975 Alexsi founded St. Herman's Hermitage and began a spiritual journey which concluded in his finding a home in the Orthodox Church. In addition to his work as an artist and writer, he travels widely and organizes pilgrimages in Eastern Europe for others to experience Orthodoxy from the inside out.Review:
In The Miraculous Child, Alvin Aleksi Currier ably retells a Christmas folktale from old Russia. With colorful and stylistically appropriate illustrations by Nadezda Glazunova, The Miraculous Child is a timeless tale of a poor Russian family in a humble log home where a woodcutter, his mother, wife and children have almost nothing to eat, very little to trade or sell, and nothing for the Christmas Feast. The woodcutter encounters a little boy out in a field, shivering and cold. When he brings the lad into his home to share what little poor fare the family has, they discover that it's an angel they have invited in from the cold and a Christmas Feast is held that will never be forgotten. Very highly recommended for the Christmas and folktale collections at grade schools and in community library collections. --Amazon
