The Christmas story is both familiar and utterly extraordinary. The cast of characters includes shepherds, magicians, an emperor and a despot, angels, and a baby who is Almighty God. In his new book subtitled How Christ’s Coming Changed Everything (and Still Does), Hahn examines the characters and the story in light of the biblical and historical context.

He brings evidence to light, dispelling some of the mystery of the story. Yet Christmas is made familiar all over again by showing it to be a family story — the story of a father, a mother, and a child.
