Scott Hahn's Joy to the World: How Christ's Coming Changed Everything (and Still Does) turns his deep spirituality and biblical exposition to the event nearly everyone knows: The Nativity.
And we all know The Nativity, right? The shepherds. The stable. The three magi.
But what is this Nativity? Almighty God, Creator of Heaven and Earth becoming a small baby born in adverse circumstances. In theological language, Incarnation.
God became human in order that we humans might enter into that very divine life.
That's the biggest part of Joy to the World. It explores the stunning and amazing claim at the very heart of the Christian faith. And Hahn is just the person for that survey.
But this book is hardly meant just for Christmas. It is full of spiritual wisdom to nurture Christians throughout the year.
