About this title

Synopsis:

An astronomical exploration of the Star of Bethlehem against a background of the Christmas story.

From School Library Journal:

A newly illustrated version of a 1966 title that is a fascinating example of the scientific mind at work. Branley asks what might have caused the star the Wise Men followed to appear in the heavens. He discusses theories and rules out by evidence shooting stars, (too short a duration) comets, and novas (none visible around the time of Jesus' birth). Branley then deduces the year and season of Jesus' birth through a series of old tax records, facts of Herod's rule and death, and the times when desert people grazed sheep. Fieser's use of rich colors and rounded shapes give the illustrations a substantial firmness and authority that suit the narrative perfectly. This book is not only seasonally remarkable, but pictures and text glow in this carefully reasoned and fully probable explanation of a phenomenon once observed.
