Most Christians have heard the Christmas story a thousand times. But its truly awesome power tends to get lost in our modern - day celebrations of the event. And its humanness can be overshadowed by its familiarity. The genuine sentiments of a Christmas card manger scene do not capture the dirt, the smells, the loneliness of this birth. Bestselling author Janette Oke sees in the story of Christmas all the ingredients of classic fiction. There is drama, suspense, love, conflict, tragedy, and even a bit of humour or satire. The plot is both simple and complex, with subplots and interweaving events. But she turns the hearts of the readers toward the One to whom the entire story is directed. For it is truly Christ's story, and the themes of love and redemption are unmistakable. Bringing to life this human drama, Janette Oke shows how every twist and turn was guided by the hand of the Divine. The result: The powerful proof of God's overwhelming love, and the most cataclysmic event in history.
