Hidden christmas (Noël caché)
Timothy Keller offers us a deeply moving and intellectually challenging examination of the Nativity.
Everyone thinks they know the story of the Nativity. At Christmas, nativity scenes are displayed in churches and homes, to traditional music. Despite the abundance of such Christian references in popular culture, who understands the difficulties of this story?
From the faith of Mary to that of the shepherds, from the courage of Joseph to the disturbing prophecy of Simeon, from the king's manger to the cross of the Savior, Timothy Keller accompanies us on a journey that surprisingly illuminates the Nativity . By understanding this message of hope, the reader will deeply grasp the infinite richness of the meaning of Christmas.
"Every Christmas I realize the critical importance of this message. But people don't listen to him and ignore the Christian perspective of Christmas… This book is a non-sentimental presentation of Christmas that calls us to a spiritual awakening ”. - Timothy Keller
