John MacArthur's goes to the heart of what Christmas is really about: The birth of Jesus—Immanuel, God with us, the promised Messiah—who came to save His people from their sins. It may be the biggest and most popular of all our holidays, but Christmas is in jeopardy just the same. A subtle but sure erosion is eating away the season's true significance. MacArthur offers this book as an antidote to two prevailing philosophies that are stealing Christmas—an effort to mythologize the Christmas story—and a tendency to secularize it.
With reverence and a contagious sense of wonder, John MacArthur details every biblical fact known about the birth of Jesus, stressing that Christmas should be a time of real joy and gladness, as opposed to the manufactured sentiment and wild revelry that characterize the way the world observes Christmas. The simple fact is: That baby in the manger is God. That's the heart and soul of the Christmas message.
