Irene (Worthington) Baron ’60 won the first place Gold Medal in the Illumination Book Awards for the 2013 Exemplary Christian Education Book for her nonfiction book, “Unraveling the Christmas Star Mystery.” The Jenkins Group awards celebrate and recognize exemplary Christian education books produced by the Christian branch of publishing and bookselling that bring inspiration and answers to millions of readers exploring the Christian faith. The book, written for middle school and older readers, presents historical information about the night skies of 2,000-years ago discovered by using NASA astronomy computer programs. The scientific data, correlated with ancient observations and beliefs, form a precise explanation of the birth of Jesus Christ and the associated phenomenon of the Christmas star that occurred directly over Bethlehem of Judea.
