Even people who are not practicing Christians think they are familiar with the story of the nativity. Every Christmas displays of baby Jesus resting in a manger decorate lawns and churchyards, and songs about shepherds and angels fill the air. Yet despite the abundance of these Christian references in popular culture, how many of us have examined the hard edges of this biblical story?

In his new book, Timothy Keller takes readers on an illuminating journey into the surprising background of the nativity. By understanding the message of hope and salvation within the Bible’s account of Jesus’ birth, readers will experience the redeeming power of God’s grace in a deeper and more meaningful way.

Keller shares, "If you’re my age and you’ve been preaching for 40 years, you’ve talked about Christmas a lot. Every time I get to the Christmas season I realize this is such an important message, and people don’t hear it, they just tune out what the Christian idea of Christmas claims to be… this is a bit of a wake-up call, and a non-sentimental book on Christmas."

  • Presents a moving and provocative examination of the nativity story
  • Delves into the background of the Christmas season and the themes behind it
  • Looks at Christmas and its Christian meaning and relevance in modern culture
  • A Light Has Dawned
  • The Mothers of Jesus
  • The Fathers of Jesus
  • Where Is the King?
  • Mary’s Faith
  • The Shepherds’ Faith
  • A Sword in the Soul
  • The Doctrine of Christmas
[A] great gift book . . . Keller achieves his pastoral goal of teaching Christmas’ most important message—‘God alone has the life, truth, and joy that we lack and cannot generate ourselves’—and in doing so, provides solace for those who seek it.

Publishers Weekly

Keller beautifully displays multiple facets of the gospel within the Christmas story... [He] has established his place as one our most helpful theological and cultural commentators. With Hidden Christmas, he applies his gifts to a subject that’s at once overly familiar and often neglected.

—Scott James, The Gospel Coalition
