A fascinating book and very helpful!
I’m a Christian and have read the Christmas story in the Bible many times. This book gave me a closer look at the historical and cultural places and people in the Bible accounts, which enriched the reading of the Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of Luke passages a lot. I kept thinking, “Oh, that makes sense now.” It is written in a very easy to understand style with some bits of humor so listening to it was a pleasure. It is in no way disrespectful.
The speculation (what the author called it) about what happened to the wise men after they gave gifts to Jesus and worshipped Him, was the only part I took exception with. And of course it isn’t in the Bible record. But I would still recommend this book for reading or listening to.
