Brother Egbert is a medieval monk who spends most of his time in the scriptorium copying out pages from the Bible. That is how Jake, the carpenter's son, learns the story of Jesus' birth. It is a story that inspires Jake and his father as they make a new carving for the abbey church' and that carving inspires Brother Egbert to write this story.
Steve Eggleton studied art and design at Portsmouth, and is now a well-known sculptor. He has worked as an artist and as a teacher while restoring the Tudor farmhouse he lives in, but he has become best known for his relief sculpture, which is strongly influenced by his love of medieval carving (his sculptures and carved signs can be seen across East Anglia). Steve has published numerous articles on sculpture and wood-carving, and contributed to a number of books on the subject.
