Hidden Christmas: The Surprising Truth Behind the Birth of Christ


From pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller comes the perfect gift for the holidays—a profoundly moving and intellectually provocative examination of the Nativity story

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?

In his new book Timothy Keller takes readers on an illuminating journey into the surprising background of the Nativity. By understanding the message of hope and salvation within the Bible’s account of Jesus’s birth, readers will experience the redeeming power of God’s grace in a meaningful and deeper way.

    This was a great book, one that every Christian should read before Christmas (each year). There were many great insights into the Christmas story, that could be missed. Highly recommended....

    First sentence from the introduction: Christmas is the only Christian holy day that is also a major secular holiday--arguably our culture's biggest. First sentence from chapter one: One of the first i...
