Product Description

For centuries, December has marked a time of expectation, excitement, hope, joy, activity and family. It marks the season of Christmas, or, as some say, the season of Advent, of the Nativity story. In our secular society, everyone gets swept up in the Christmas spirit and even people who are not professing Christians claim familiarity with the story of the Nativity. Christmas displays of Jesus resting in a manger populate lawns and churchyards, and songs about shepherds and angels fill the air. Yet despite the abundance of these Christian references in popular culture, how many of us have examined the hard edges of this biblical story? Is there a deeper meaning to that first Christmas besides just being an incredible story?

In his new book, Hidden Christmas: The Surprising Truth Behind the Birth of Christ, pastor and New York Times bestselling author, Tim Keller guides readers through an illuminating journey into the surprising background of the Nativity story—a story that celebrates the advent of Jesus Christ, who came to save mankind and restore our humanity to how it was meant to be. This profoundly moving and intellectually provocative book unpacks the message of hope, redemption, and salvation hidden in the biblical account of Jesus' birth so that readers may experience the redeeming power of God's grace in a meaningful and deeper way.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Timothy Keller and his books

"Superb . . . we should be grateful to Keller for his wisdom, scholarship, and humility." 
—The Gospel Coalition

"Tim Keller’s ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him." 
—Billy Graham

"Unlike most suburban megachurches, much of Redeemer is remarkably traditional. What is not traditional is Dr. Keller’s skill in speaking the language of his urbane audience. . . . Observing Dr. Keller’s professorial pose on stage, it is easy to understand his appeal." 
The New York Times

"Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians."

    A very good book--just the kind to read in preparation for a true celebration of Christmas (but it would be good to read at any time).

    The author takes the old familiar story and demonstrates deeper truths about God and his love for humanity. How God's motives are always for good makes the story even more compelling

    A good book to give to people whom you are discipling who are in the early part of their journey with God.

    This book is so needed! We have secularized Christmas and Easter to the point that Christ Jesus has dropped out of the picture. The birth and death of that man named Jesus is overwhelmingly impactful to our lives as individuals and citizens of this planet. We have left our first Love - if you ever learned to return the love He has for you - go back to knowing Him more than you celebrate his life's beginning and end. Your future hangs in the balance of that short 33 year life.
