Book Review: Hidden Christmas by Timothy Keller

20 December 2016

Hidden Christmas: The Surprising Truth behind the Birth of Christ, by Timothy Keller, examines the meaning of Christmas and our response to it by taking a look at the women in the narrative. The New Testament begins not with a dramatic narrative or lofty poetry but with a genealogy.

Interestingly, Matthew’s gospel includes women in Jesus’ family line – something that wasn’t customary in an ancient culture, where women were largely powerless and uninfluential. In this surprising take on the Christmas story, Keller reveals how, by focusing on the women in Jesus’ birth narratives, a colourful, scandalous and refreshing tale of grace emerges.

Hidden Christmas can be purchased for $13.75 at amazon.com.
