The Christmas story evokes many touching images. Halos, fresh hay, shepherds carrying newborn lambs and young motherhood in blue homespun. It s enough to bring tears to the eyes of Christmastime churchgoers. But the Christmas story is more than sentimental - it is powerful.

Honestly, my intention for reading this book at Christmastime was wrapped up in the idea that I desired to celebrate more thoughtfully the true meaning of Christmas and that desire was certainly encouraged in the quiet reading times stolen away from the crazy busyness of the season.

Culled from sermons preached around Christmas during the first twenty years of his ministry, this reprint from Boice provides useful insight into the way Scripture presents the birth of Christ. Boice looks at some lesser-known figures of the Christmas story and also adeptly fits the birth of Christ into context with His later death and resurrection. While not very in-depth, it remains a solid look at one of the single most important events in human history.

Great book that gives more detailed information of the virgin birth and the people involved in the Christmas story. This is a compilation of some of his Christmas sermons, but they flow wonderfully together without repetition. I highly recommend this book any time of the year!

I am glad i read this during the Christmas season. I helped me further understand the reason for Christ to come to Earth. I just put me in the right frame of mind for Christmas. I am glad it came to me when it did. Another great selection by AGO.

I liked this book very much. It gives enough detail without losing my interest. The explanation of the genealogies (Royal vs Legal) was the best I've seen so far.
