'Trevor Dennis peels away centuries of presumption . . . mediated more through carols and nativity plays than the words of scripture themselves to reveal the amazing, mysterious truth behind the stories Matthew and Luke told so long ago.' --thegoodbookstall
'For the pastor or preacher, Trevor Dennis is always an interesting and fruitful guide to the scriptures. His strength is in his deep involvement with the text as story, combined with an understated scholarship which means that his readings are never careless or indefensibly idiosyncratic. He ranges across the Old and New Testaments to make unexpected connections and shed new light on old tales.' --Baptist Times
