setting Christ's birth in context, 1 Feb. 2010
This is an eminently readable account of the birth of Jesus Christ, set in its historical context. Borg and Crossan are well known for their interpretation and explanation of biblical history that really brings home the truth of what happened 2000 years ago. If anyone is interested in clear and straighforward account of Christ's birth and why it was seen to be so important historically and in the Jewish cuture of the time, then this is THE book to read.
