:

One of bestselling New York pastor Tim Keller's most popular Christmas sermons, expanded and published in a beautiful gift edition.

The New Testament begins not with a dramatic narrative or lofty poetry but with a genealogy. Provocatively, Matthew's gospel includes women in Jesus' family line - something that wasn't customary in an ancient culture, where women were largely powerless and uninfluential.

In this surprising take on the Christmas story, Tim Keller reveals how, by focusing on the women in Jesus' birth narratives, a colourful, scandalous, and refreshing tale of grace emerges.

Enjoyable Read
4 stars By Craig, Apr 07 2018
The opening chapter or two was slow and obvious to me so I stopped reading. However, I came back to book after a while and the later chapters were very insightful. It shows how God lavishes his grace on his people and is very encouraging. It is a fairly short book so it can be read in a short time.
