Reviews - What do customers think about The Day Christ Was Born: The True Account of the First 24 Hours of Jesus's Life?

Reality of the Incarnation of God becoming a man  Feb 28, 2008
I got this book because I heard it reccommended on the radio by Swindoll. It is a very short simple easy to read book which, though I was expecting it to be deeper and more insightful, the simple clear presentation of what that day may have been like for these mere mortals involved in it presented in such a simple mundane matter of fact way moved me to tears repeatedly. This book helps you to put God's coming as a human being in the flesh and all the awe and grandeur of it into a perspective that is more easy to see in grasp for us humans.
Terrific  Jan 18, 2007
For such a small book, it was jam packed with great information. This account of Christ's birth made Mary & Joseph's saga "real" to me. As I read the accounting of the time, I could see the occurances in my mind clearly and could truely imagine what they must have been feeling during that period of time. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the story of Christ.
An New Appreciation for Mary and Joseph as People  Dec 23, 2005
When it was first written in 1959, this book was subtitled "A Reverential Recreation," and it is a very good one, an outstanding piece of work that gives the reader a new appreciation for the human dimensions of the Christmas story. Bishop's detailed research and captivating writing style make this book an engaging read, giving the reader a greater feel and appreciation for Mary (she was only 14 or 15 at the time)and Joseph (He, too, was much younger than you might think, about 18 or 19), of what their life was like, of the family ties between Jesus and John the Baptist, of what countryside was like on the 90-mile trip from Nazareth to Bethlehem, of Bethlehem's proxmity to Jerusalem and its impact on the story...Reads like the the old "You Are There" TV series, and it is good, very good. Well done and highly recommended. Perhaps the next best thing to being there...
An interesting read  Oct 18, 2004
The Day Christ was Born is an excellent work of fiction describing the life of Christ. The book actually covers more than just the day of Jesus' birth, giving attention to the circumstances surrounding that important event, such as Mary's pregnancy, the trip to Bethlehem, the visit of the shepherds and the Magi, and the trip to Egypt.

Bishop takes a few liberties in his interpretation of the biblical story, but maintains the crucial elements in his narrative. He explains some of the customs of the day, including those of marriage and the process of giving birth.

With only two of the four gospels giving any details about the birth of Jesus, Bishop has attempted to supply the missing details, weaving in material from various ancient historical and archeological sources. He doesn't tamper with the facts, but merely enhances them with a creative dialogue and description that makes the book an enjoyable read.
