Publisher's Summary

What could be more familiar than the Christmas story - and yet what could be more extraordinary? The cast of characters is strange and exotic: shepherds and magicians, an emperor and a despot, angels, and a baby who is Almighty God. The strangeness calls for an explanation, and this book provides it by examining the characters and the story in light of the biblical and historical context. Best-selling author Scott Hahn who has written extensively on Scripture and the early Church, brings evidence to light, dispelling some of the mystery of the story. Yet Christmas is made familiar all over again by showing it to be a family story. Christmas, as it appears in the New Testament, is the story of a father, a mother, and a child - their relationships, their interactions, their principles, their individual lives, and their common life. To see the life of this "earthly trinity" is to gaze into heaven.

    "A great book for family reading hour."

    I am a big fan of listening to audio books with family at nap time or on tv time. This one is at the top of my list! Just when you think you know it all.

    "Fantastic Christmas Book"

    This is a great christmas book. It summarizes in a very concise and entertaining way the amazing mysteries of the coming of our lord.
    Once I started the audiobook, I couldn't stop. I particularly enjoy the references to the old testament and how christmas brings joy to out lives.
    I have read almost all books from S. Hahn and this is among the very best.
