Product Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

In our post-Christian culture, people no longer look to the Bible for the Christmas story—rather, we make Christmas into a sentimental holiday that centers around our personal stories. For those who wish to celebrate the birth of Christ in a thoughtful and festive way, James Boice has written an excellent guide in The Christ of Christmas. We have a clear and captivating Story of our Savior to celebrate and the book you hold in your hands is the perfect way to reflect on the true meaning behind the historic birth of Jesus Christ!
"As if proclaiming the good news for the very first time, James Montgomery Boice’s exposition of Christmas will dazzle the reader with Christ, and his keen theological insight will renew the mind and strengthen the heart to fall at Jesus feet, like the shepherds of old, and call him Lord and God. A must read for families who long to restore Christ to the center of Christmas."
“The death of James M. Boice left a large void in the realm of Christ-centered exposition. These Christmas studies provide a master class for preachers and a terrific resource for all who wish to learn or present the greatest story ever told.”
