There are stories we’ve simply heard and then there are stories that change us.
There are stories we casually enjoy and then there are stories that compel us to act. This book has 13 chapters about the nativity. Each one looks at the nativity through different eyes—different stages of life, different responsibilities and roles.
It’s easy to fall in the trap of telling the Christmas narrative with the enthusiasm of someone reciting, Hickory Dickory Dock. But, if we pay attention, the nativity will propel us to follow Christ confidently— the nativity changes us and propels us to follow Jesus confidently—not as though he were far away, but because we know him as Immanuel: God with us.
