Raymond Brown was a man full of insight and wisdom and applied that in particular to the gospel of John and then to the infancy narratives. His main theme is that they are more than history and attempt to demonstrate that Jesus is the fulfilment of the old testament and the personification of the people of God. Its challenging, interesting and importantly readable. Not for the closed mind fundamentalist but mainstream Christians will enjoy and value this work.
