This engrossing volume, which incorporates some of the author's own beautifully written stories and poems on the Christmas theme, begins by examining the two biblical accounts in turn: Matthew's, which is a dark tale, or at least a tale of light shining in darkness, and Luke's, which is full of light and joy. The author explores the concept of the virgin birth, while acknowledging that the narratives retain a certain ambiguity, and looks at the strangely neglected question: given the world and the God that we know, what story must we tell now? His response is that the Church itself desperately needs the vision of the God in a manger, and must allow this vision (together with that of God on a cross) to shape its theology and practice.
