The birth of a king is normally marked by lavish national celebrations, a gathering of dignitaries and great joy. But what if he is born in a cave, is surrounded by animals and his first visitors are unknown shepherds?
And what if his birth day presents are obscure and seemingly useless? You may think that perhaps you have the wrong baby! The king of the universe did have an unusual arrival; the precise time, place and circumstances were pinpointed over 300 years before it happened so you can be sure that you are in the right place, after all. In this heart-warming study of the events which culminated in the birth of Jesus, Jim Boice shows us the extraordinary God who loves you and me. You will marvel again as familiar stories are explored in a way that brings fresh insight and relevance to your life today.
--S R Cunnah, Evangelical Movement of Wales
"Dr Boice is an American pastor with over thirty books to his credit. This present work is a reprint of Christmas sermons which the author sometimes styles studies, all centred on the Incarnation. Although couched in simple terms, the work enshrines good orthodox doctrine, particularly on the Person of Christ himself (though the term the eternal God-man (p.56) is surely misconceived). The lordship of Christ is particularly well presented - and applied. Other good elements are: the evident pastoral concern; the rebuttal of doctrinal error; the quotations from such old worthies as Spurgeon and Ryle; and the warm, evangelistic thrust. Historical references add to the appeal, though, mistakenly, Cassius appears as Cacius (p.113) and Origen as Origin (p. 162). This work will almost certainly have most appeal for those favouring a devotional approach."
