In December 2005, BBC Radio 4's programme Sunday ran a 'Reduced Nativity Competition' in which listeners were invited to see who could best tell the Christmas story in thirty seconds. But the Bible answers the question in less than three seconds: 'Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners'. To grasp the true meaning of Christmas we need to see beyond the tinsel and the trimmings, the parties and the presents, the food and the fun. We need to fix our minds on the fact that Jesus did not come into the world as a diplomat, a politician, an economist, a psychologist or a scientist, but as a Saviour.
One innovative approach is that Blanchard hypothesizes about what a person who is also God must be like and then proves that Jesus meets all of these characteristics. The books title may be somewhat misleading since it is primarily devoted to who Jesus was rather than why he came to Earth. In the last pages it is clear that Jesus came to save the lost and, based on the previous material, that he was uniquely qualified to do so.
This brief book would be appropriate for individuals unfamiliar with Christianity or for believers who want to better defend their faith. Its low price also makes it a worthwhile purchase for both school and church libraries. Andrea Walker, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
