From the Back Cover

John MacArthur's The Miracle of Christmas goes to the heart of what Christmas is really about: "The birth of Jesus -- Immanuel, God with us, the promised Messiah -- who came to save His people from their sins." "It may be the biggest and most popular of all our holidays, but Christmas is in jeopardy just the same. A subtle but sure erosion is eating away the season's true significance." MacArthur offers this book "as an antidote to two prevailing philosophies that are stealing Christmas" -an effort to mythologize the Christmas story - and a tendency to secularize it -- With reverence and a contagious sense of wonder, John MacArthur details every biblical fact known about the birth of Jesus, stressing that "Christmas should be a time of real joy and gladness, as opposed to the manufactured sentiment and wild revelry that characterize the way the world observes Christmas." The simple fact is: "That baby in the manger is God. That's the heart and soul of the Christmas message."

A must read for all believers and non-believers alike. Get both the historical and theological truths of the Christmas season from the one who can do it best, MacArthur. Discover that Christmas is not a holiday created by myth and tales but is historical documented as fact! The Christmas season marks the center of time and our calendar as the most spectacular event in history and was predicated hundreds of years before. Let MacArthur explain the true meaning of such icons as the Christmas tree, the wise men, the star, and the reason for the stable. Share this with friends and family alike as a true and fascinating look at this great holiday.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Joshua M. Clark on December 13, 2002
Format: Hardcover
In _The Miracle of Christmas_, John MacArthur analyzes every aspect of Christ's birth and the glorious meaning this has for Christians. He travels from the prophecies of Christ's coming in the Old Testament, through the lives of Joseph and Mary, and all the way to the wise men. Amongst this story of the first Christmas, MacArthur weaves short explanations of how such Christmas rituals as trees, cards, and Santa Clause came about. All is well-written, and a fascinating tribute to the importance of Christ's birth to Christians.

John MacArthur provides the reader with both the biblical and historical review of events surrounding the REAL Christmas story. This short book would be a great annual review for anyone who believes in the truth of the Christmas story.

A friend recommended this book on the basis it was the best book she had found on the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ. I have read it the past two Christmases and purchased a copy to pass on to someone else each year because it gives good insight into the time when "in the fullness of time God sent forth His Son to be born of a virgin, born under the Law, in order that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons."
