I judged Hidden Christmas: The Surprising Truth Behind the Birth of Christ by Timothy Keller by its cover. I thought it would be an investigation into the Biblical nativity, an exploration of the Bethlehem miracle in the manger. Instead of providing more information about the birth of Christ than what is provided in the Bible, Keller extrapolated on what Christ’s birth means for humanity as the path to salvation. While not a bad message to impart upon any reader, that the acceptance of Christ and God’s grace will lead to peace and eternal life, nonetheless I found the book and its blurb on the back to be misleading. It was not an in-depth analysis of the Christmas story itself.
