The question of the Virgin Birth of Jesus has been one of the most widely discussed, as well as one of the most disputed, subjects in the whole range of Christian doctrine. This encyclopaedic study achieved a wide reputation when it was first published, and it is well known on both sides of the Atlantic, but in recent years has been virtually unobtainable in Great Britain. It remains the most thorough and scholarly treatment of the subject published this century. The book is not only invaluable as apologetic but also as a compendium of information.
