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 bestelling author, Tim Keller guides readers through an illuminating journey into the surprising background of the Nativity story, a story that is a celebration of 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.

Praise for Timothy Keller and his other books:
"Superb . . . we should be grateful to Keller for his wisdom, scholarship, and humility."
The Gospel Coalition
"Tim Kellers ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him."
"Unlike most suburban megachurches, much of Redeemer is remarkably traditional. What is not traditional is Dr. Kellers skill in speaking the language of his urbane audience. . . . Observing Dr. Kellers 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."
