Gabriel of Urantia wears many hats – musician, counselor, church leader and a spiritual author ready to release his new children’s book The Real Santa Claus.
In the book, Gabriel has put a new spin on a classic tale, bringing expanded spiritual values to an exciting new Christmas story. Gabriel tells, through the mind of Jesus, how Santa Claus came to be an example of Jesus, who is the Giver of all things good.
The Real Santa Claus – printed in English with adjacent Spanish translations – shares a unique perspective on who really is the beloved Santa/St. Nicholas Christmas figure woven throughout the stories of history.
Author and spiritual teacher Gabriel has published many texts and this book – his first children’s story – is a wonderful addition to compliment his distinctive publishing accomplishments. Santa and his team of reindeer take on new cosmic dimensions in this entertaining and educational children’s story.
The Real Santa Claus also includes a coloring section of all the story sketches (illustrated by 16-year-old Savijaveh Wonson), accompanied by wonderful photographs of children taken by an awarding winning 13-year-old photographer DesManae DellErba.
“The Real Santa Claus isn’t just a rehashing of a classic story everyone knows. Through this book, I hope to help young children to understand that Jesus Christ is the real Santa, and I try to make this easily understood to young minds,” Gabriel said.
After the loss of his seven-year-old daughter in 1977 to open heart surgery, Gabriel found himself increasingly drawn towards spirituality. In the 1980s, Gabriel explored the New Age movement and studied Eastern philosophy and religion, expanding his repertoire of truth while always maintaining his Christian roots. During this time of exploration, he says he was providentially given The Urantia Book, which he began to study extensively and which eventually led to circumstances that convinced him to spread this message.
Shortly after, Gabriel met his spiritual partner, Niánn Emerson Chase. In 1989, Gabriel and Niánn founded several nonprofit organizations that continue to grow and thrive today, including Global Community Communications Alliance (GCCA) and Avalon Organic Gardens & Eco Village.
Gabriel says his writings are a call to the people of the planet to make positive inner changes in their personal lives to bring about positive outer changes needed in the world. He has written the Be Aware Proclamation to this effect. He hopes to create a true spiritual revolution that Gabriel calls a Spiritualution.
GCCA today has grown to become a popular new thought, alternative church that believes in the Fatherhood of God and the brother/sisterhood of all humankind. The Spiritualution has also led to the birth of a number of spiritually-empowered social, civil and environmental programs and movements.
