Description

"A line-by-line exegesis . . . that not only synthesizes a generation of modern scholarship but also provides a coherent and compelling explanation of what the stories of Christ's birth were meant to convey. . . . Brown manages to rescue the Christmas story from both the contempt of experts and the sentimentality of naive laymen. . . . Ordinary Christians can thank this priestly scholar for helping them to put the adult Christ back into Christmas."--Newsweek
"A work of the highest critical historical scholarship in a form that is accessible to the average well-educated reader. . . . Brown's treatment of the infancy narratives is definitive. It will undoubtedly be the standard work on the subject for years to come."--Best Sellers
"Recommended to readers at all levels and without reservation."--America
"A masterly work. Every conclusion is argued with the utmost thoroughness."--The Catholic Bible Quarterly
"A magnificent tome, which puts previous studies in the shade and which promises to remain standard for a very long time. A superb study, rich in content, profound in insight."--The Living Church
"One of the premier events in biblical publishing. . . . One thing is sure: This book will become a classic study of the nature and message of the infancy narratives."--The Bible Today
