The proof for the Christmas star is close to publication. At this point, everything is ready to go except for the final format by the printing company. I am waiting for the final proof to complete the index. I believe having the index will aid Bible scholars, home schoolers, Sunday School teachers, and Christian schools studying the book. The illustrations look great and the NASA photographs excellent. This is going to be one book that will be on everyone's Christmas gift list. It will be available from Amazon.com perhaps mid-September or shortly after.
