Manger King: Meditations on Christmas and the Gospel of Hope

From the Back Cover
"At Christmas, God put on skin to obey the law He knew His people could not. And then, on Good Friday, He paid the price for sin He knew they could not pay."

Christmas is the time of year when we celebrate our Savior's birth. But have you thought about how Jesus being born affects you being born again?

When we look at the baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger, we should also see our Savior, who laid down His life to set us free. John Greco delivers a fresh look at the familiar story of Christmas and all the characters who play parts in this redemption drama. The manger scene sits in the shadow of the cross, pointing directly to God's plan of salvation—a plan full of justice and grace that gently unfolds on every page of the Bible. 

The 25 short readings in Manger King lead us from Bethlehem to Calvary because the Jesus of Christmas is the Christ of Easter.
