“The Nativity Story” led the Hollywood box office derby for all new releases over the weekend and came in fourth place overall with a gross of $8 million, showing once again, why it’s the greatest story ever told.
Just in time for Christmas is a memento for all those touched by the story of Jesus’ birth – and it answers the question “Why?”
It’s called “Why the Nativity? 25 Compelling Reasons We Celebrate the Nativity,” by David Jeremiah.
Every year, millions of people around the world celebrate Christmas. But what does it all mean? Why did God choose a young virgin named Mary and a simple carpenter named Joseph to bring his only Son into the world? Why was the Son of God born in a lowly manger in a small town called Bethlehem? Who was this infant named Jesus that the prophecies foretold would save the world from sin and suffering? And what does the Nativity story mean for us today?
Drawing from both the Old and New Testaments, noted pastor and theologian Jeremiah provides answers to 25 of the most thought-provoking questions surrounding the most pivotal moment in human history – the birth of Jesus Christ.
Why do Christians make such an issue about an obscure baby born in a small town, Bethlehem? Why Bethlehem? Why Jesus? Why does it make a difference to me? In this book, David Jeremiah explains in his hallmark style for both believers and skeptics alike why it’s important to examine again the birth of that baby, Jesus.
With the publicity surrounding New Line Cinema’s “The Nativity Story” movie, you’ll want “Why the Nativity” – and it’s at the perfect price to give away to people who are searching for the real meaning of Christmas.
