The Christmas Gospel

A special edition Luke's Gospel designed with Christmas in mind

Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

Luke 2:10-11 (NIV)

Lighthearted yet thought provoking

With an introduction featuring children describing Christmas as they see it, the honest and often unintentionally witty comments give the perfect backdrop to encourage readers to look more closely at the life of Jesus Christ, the Christmas child.

A creative design and an innovative format

A festive cover designed to look like wrapping paper is on the outside. Inside, Luke's Gospel uses an innovative NIV format that is presented without chapters or verses, allowing it to be read as a flowing narrative.
