    more from this reviewer


    James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was a Reformed theologian and pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia from 1968 until his death, and was heard on The Bible Study Hour radio broadcast.

    Here are some quotations from this 1983 book:

    "If the (Christmas) story were ... an event that merely had happened 2,000 years ago (or even 100 years ago) and then ended, it would have no hold on us. What does it really matter that somebody died long ago in a far-off land? I have my problems. You have your problems. So what? But if the One who came then still comes, if He comes to the individual through His Spirit to bring the results of the salvation He accomplished 2,000 years ago to where you and I stand and act now, then this story lives and enables us to live also." (Pg. 17)
    "One tragedy of the first Christmas is that so many came close to Christmas yet missed it all... There were the political leaders of the time: Caesar Augustus and Quirinius, the governor of Syria... The innkeeper also missed Christmas...(Pg. 75)
    "The means of celebrating Christmas (Lk 2:17-20) suggests are: (1) to tell others about it; (2) to wonder at the event itself; (3) to ponder its meaning; and (4) to glorify and praise God for what was done there." (Pg. 112)
