The Miracle Of Christmas, by John MacArthur
This little book 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, he 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".
