Evangelistic book introducing the awesome God at the heart of the familiar Christmas story who offers joy, hope, purpose, and belonging.
Most of us are familiar with the events of the first Christmas—the manger scene, shepherds watching sheep, angels singing their songs, and wise men arriving—but what if there’s more to the story? What if the birth of Jesus is actually the most significant event in all of history and can transform our lives?
This evangelistic book goes beyond the birth of Jesus to look at what he did when he grew up and how he fulfilled the names given to him centuries beforehand by the prophet Isaiah.
In a compelling, insightful, winsome and personal way, J.D. Greear shows that if we get to know the God who lies behind the Christmas story and at the heart of the Christmas story, we'll discover the joy, hope, purpose, and belonging we're all searching for.
Readers will see that Jesus is the Wonderful Counsellor, who can guide them in all truth; the Mighty God, who made and owns everything; the Eternal Father, who they can trust to love them for ever; and the Prince of Peace, who died in their place so that they can be forgiven and accepted eternally.

We have given this book away at our Christmas services and events this year (2021). There are two reasons it was well suited. First, the author writes off the gospel with clarity and faithfulness. Secondly, he sets it in the context of real, sometimes difficult or messy lives. I think that connects the gospel, particularly the coming of Christ at Christmas, really well with people I meet daily and with me!
