This is a great book for people who think they know the Christmas story, and for those who know that they don't. It's both creative and historical, simple and insightful, fresh and faithful. It's a great book, and I hope it is widely read and used.

A great book for introducing people to the real and wonderful Jesus of history_ lots of myth busting, truth and humour ... That's my Christmas shopping sorted for this year

This book blows the dust off the first Christmas story! It's fast paced, witty and will help anyone discover what really happened when Jesus was born. Get lots of copies and pass them on to as many people as you can.

A humorous, piercing and above all truthful book that challenges our preconceptions of Christmas. Carl writes with wit and a real grasp of modern minds to show us that Jesus can't stay in the manger.
