This is just one more book by Bodie and Brock Thoene that is wonderful. Their books bring life to the Bible and clarifies many of those "huh" moments I have from time to time. The stories come straight from the Bible!
The reason I only gave it 4 stars, even though it is an excellent book, is because it doesn't follow chronologically from the first three, which was a little confusing at first. In the earlier books Jesus was alive and now in the 4th one He is just being born.
Great story telling. I really enjoyed having the Christmas story come alive. I also like the historical settings and although the characters are fictional the book stays within the theological themes of the Bible.
