Excerpt


The Christmas story evokes many touching images. Halos, fresh hay, shepherds carrying new 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. It deals with real people, it involves pain and it is one of the most strikingly unusual stories in all of history. Above all, its main emphasis is not on the infancy of Jesus but on the deity of Jesus - and why that deity took the form of an infant. It's a story that still has deep meaning today. Paperback.
