A remarkable gift can arrive in an unremarkable package. One did in Bethlehem more than 2,000 years ago. No one expected God to come the way He did. Yet the way He came was every bit as important as the coming itself. The manger is the message.
In the book and companion four-session video Bible study, Max Lucado will help you explore how the One who made everything chose to make himself nothing for us. He experienced hunger and thirst. He went through the stages of human development. He was taught to walk, stand, and wash his face. He was completely and genuinely human.
Because of Bethlehem, we no longer have marks on our record... just grace. We have the promise that God is always near us, always for us, always within us—and that we have a friend and Savior in heaven. Long after the guests have left, the carolers have gone home, and the lights have come down, these promises endure.

Wonderful study! Our young adult class is enjoying this study. The book is an easy read, full of thought-provoking insights. Great way to prepare for the birth of our Savior.
Get in the true spirit of CHRISTmas! The story of Christ's Birth told only as Max Lucado can! He is a true Wordsmith and says far more in less words than any author.
Greatest book ever! This book is such a blessing, especially at Christmas, but really anytime. It all began with a baby in a manger. Love it!
I try to read this book every year during December... I read it and did the study with Max Lucado. It always gets me ready for celebrating Jesus' Birth!
