Sofa Spotlight - The Case for Christmas, Lee Strobel
As I mentioned in a previous post this is a book that is taken from Strobel's earlier book The Case for Christ. And it is shorter. The aim of the book is to find out who was in the manger at the first Christmas.
And it works as a book in its own right. It might be the middle of summer but somehow it didn't feel wrong to be reading a book about Christmas. This version only has four chapters and less than a hundred pages. It took me about an hour and a half to get through it, which isn't bad for an entire book, short though it was.
If you are looking for a book that looks into the evidence for the reliability of the Christmas accounts in the Bible, that isn't too heavy, this could be the book for you. The one thing I would say is that the cover sort makes you want to choose the right season for this book, if you know what I mean.
