"The Light of the World" is a quick but powerful look at events surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ. It provides insights based upon the bible and historical research, rather than simply tradition and wishful thinking. I only wish it had continued so that it would include information about the wise men. I would definitely recommend and I plan to reread it during the Christmas season.
Interesting information that delves into the story found in Luke 2, where was Nazareth, what were the customs of espousal, how common was Mary's name during the time. What kind of man must Joseph have been to be chosen to be the earthly father of the Messiah? Good book to read this time of year
Lund wrote about the story of the birth of Christ from the book of Luke. He wrote the scriptures, and then explained the customs and the Jewish laws of the times, and the meaning of various words. It was interesting and informative. It's a short book, and a fast read.
This should probably rate higher with me because it explores sacred doctrine. But, it has some stiff competition with the other books I bring out each December. Better people than I probably read it more frequently than they do the Nutcracker Seek and Find. Oh well.
