Overview

When thinking about Christ's birth, we often focus our attention on Luke's detailed gospel account. But to appreciate the main point of the story-that the eternal Son of God assumed our flesh-and-blood human nature-we need to learn from the rest of the Bible why Christ came to earth. Why did Christ come? In this book, thirty-one thoughtful meditations answer this vital question, and the answers encourage us to celebrate Christ's birth more deeply, see more clearly how it is connected with the rest of His ministry, and recognize its importance for our lives.

Editorial Reviews

professor of theology at Westminster Seminary California and cohost of the White Horse Inn - Michael Horton
Can anything new be said about Christ’s incarnation? Actually, a lot of old things that we may have forgotten! Like a multifaceted diamond, the question ‘Why did the eternal Son become man?’ admits a variety of answers. Probing some of those with wisdom bathed in the Scriptures is what makes this devotional guide so rich. It will be part of our family’s Advent devotions and, I hope, a source of blessing for many others.
