Many people assume that the story of the baby in the manger at Bethlehem is just another made-up fantasy for kids. In this concise book, respected apologist Rebecca McLaughlin outlines the evidence that Jesus was a real person, explaining the reliability of the Bible’s accounts of his life and why believing in a virgin birth is not as ridiculous as it might sound.

This book shows that there is a rational basis for the belief that the world’s most famous story is fact, not fantasy—and how those events in history can infuse our lives today with meaning and joy.

Rebecca McLaughlin gained a PhD from Cambridge University and a theology degree from Oak Hill Seminary in London before working at The Veritas Forum. She is the author of the award-winning Confronting Christianity: 12 Hard Questions for the World’s Largest Religion and a regular contributor for The Gospel Coalition.

This is the ideal book if you are a sceptic. Rebecca McLaughlin is very much in tune with the big questions many of us ask. She cuts her way through the common misconceptions surrounding the Christian message and demonstrates convincingly why the idea that God visited our planet is far from a Star Wars or Harry Potter fantasy.

Rebecca graciously addresses our hesitations about the incredible claims of Christianity, and specifically Christmas. Her friendly and sincere tone complements her call for us to seriously consider and believe the greatest story ever told—a story that extends beyond Christmas.
