What is Christmas? For many it is a time for holidays, parties, family gatherings, gifts, meals together, music, and special events. For others it can mean unwanted pressure, an increased sense of loneliness, family squabbles, and crowded shops. It is the best of times for some, but the worst of times for others to borrow a phrase from Charles Dickens.
But what is Christmas really all about? Does it actually have any 'meaning'? Dr. Sinclair Ferguson's Child in the Manger: The True Meaning of Christmas sets out to explore that question, illuminating an answer that rings true for more than just the Christmas season—the birth of Jesus Christ. At the very centre of history stands the person of Jesus Christ. And he does so because he is at the centre of God's story. With thoughtful and revitalizing exposition, solid theology, and a winsome presentation of the Gospel story, Ferguson invites newcomers to the faith and seasoned believers alike to explore what is the true meaning of Christmas.
