Most Helpful Customer Reviews

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Bret Hern on December 4, 2001
Format: Paperback
In a patient, engaging style, Dr. Lawrence takes the reader on a journey through the story of the birth of Jesus, exploring the background of the principals, the historical context, and the ultimate impact. He has a marvelous gift for illustrating his points with cogent examples drawn from our mutual experience. Like the best of Christian apologists, Dr. Lawrence keeps his focus on teaching and exposition; while his own point of view is clear and unequivocal, the reader's conclusion is never assumed but earned.
Yes, it's about the Christmas story, but if you're not careful, about a hundred or so pages in you may discover it's so much more. Here's hoping Dr. Lawrence favors us with a similar treatment of the Easter story!
