Great job! Thanks. Rance Darity. Graduate University of Kentucky, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Mennonite Seminary. An Anabaptist follower of Jesus.

Revd Dr Simon Woodman Co-minister: Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, London- formerly tutor at Cardiff Baptist College, Wales. John Henson and Ray Vincent present us with the humanity of the Christmas story, and show us why it matters. I cannot thank them enough for making Christmas real to me again, and restoring true meaning to one of the most powerful, scandalous, and beautiful narratives of our shared faith. Kevin M. Rodriquez, Founder and Administrator Progressives for America.. In this thought provoking book, John and Ray, grounded in a faith that touches real people in the real world, invite the reader to expand their knowledge and imagination and to reflect on the message at the heart of the Christmas narratives.
