Good review of why we do what we do to give worship to God. Also helpful for people who question the customs of the ma y ways we pay homage to or request favors from the Saints.

Even people who are not professing Christians think they are familiar with the story of the Nativity. Every Christmas, displays of Jesus resting in a manger populate lawns and churchyards, and songs about shepherds and angels fill the air. Yet despite the abundance of these Christian references in popular culture, how many of us have examined the hard edges of this biblical story? Timothy Keller takes listeners on an illuminating journey into the surprising background of the Nativity.

Enjoyed the narrator's delivery. Contents was informative and reassuring. Logic and history prevail. I had no issues with his facts and had to finish it all in one sitting.

It may be listed as a children's book but it was very pleasant to listen to. The narrator's voice was easy to listen to. The storyline could be compared to a Harry Pott e r story. Thoroughly enjoyed the three books.
