Why the Nativity?

by David Jeremiah

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Why the Nativity? by David Jeremiah is a twenty-five chapter quest into the Nativity story. We have all read it many times over the years, but have we really stopped to ask why God orchestrated it as He did? Pastor Jeremiah does just that.

Why the Prophecies? Why Mary? Why Joseph? Why did Jesus come when He did? Why Bethlehem? Why the stable? Why call Him Jesus? Why the shepherds? Why was King Herod so angry? Why do Anna and Simeon challenge us? Why did Jesus come? Why must Jesus come again? Why do I need to believe in Jesus?

Pastor Jeremiah writes in a straightforward manner that is easy to read and keeps your attention. At the end of each chapter he asks a couple of questions for discussion and gives additional scriptures for review.

This is a terrific little book to use as devotions for the month of December or for group study leading up to Christmas. It would also make a great gift for someone searching for answers about Jesus and God. – Linda Demorest, Christian Book

25 Reasons Why We Celebrate the Nativity

Every year, millions of people around the world celebrate Christmas. But what does it all mean? Why did God choose a young virgin named Mary and a simple carpenter named Joseph to bring his only Son into the world? Why was the Son of God born in a lowly manger in a small town called Bethlehem? Who was this infant named Jesus that the prophesies foretold would save the world from sin and suffering? And what does the nativity story mean for us today?

Drawing from both the Old and New Testaments, noted pastor and theologian David Jeremiah provides answers to 25 of the most thought-provoking questions surrounding the most pivotal moment in human history—the birth of Jesus Christ.
