The True Saint Nicholas

Saint Nicholas is something of an enigma. Is he for real or not? What do we know about him, for sure? What exactly is his status as a saint? Is it from Saint Nicholas that Santa Claus evolved?  This is the matter of the book, and Mr. Bennett does an appealing job of fairly reviewing what is known or thought about Saint Nicholas and explaining why it matters to Christmas. It's a wonderful, quick read.
