Year after year, millions of people pitch into a growing whirlwind of activity in preparation for just one day: December twenty-fifth. Many of those who join in the excitement have at least some idea that this particular day is called Christmas day because it celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. Yet, they have no idea why for millions of people around the world it has become the greatest highlight of the year. It’s time to ask some questions. Who was this Jesus? Do we actually know when he was born? Was there a special purpose in his birth? Is there anything special that makes him stand out over the other 60 billion people that have lived on earth? How can a few years he spent here have any possible relevance for people living in the twenty-first century? Why should we bother to find out? In this lively volume Blanchard strips away the myths and tells like it is. Here is the real story. The dynamic truth that over the centuries has revolutionized countless lives. Read it carefully. If you get the message, no Christmas Day will ever be the same for you again—nor will any other day!
