Description: With the original publication of "The Birth of the Messiah" in 1977, Raymond E. Brown accomplished what few could. Sizing up this magnificent book, Newsweek called it "a line-by-line exegesis...that not only synthesizes a generation of modern scholarship but also provides a coherent and compelling explanation of what the stories of Christ's birth were meant to convey...Brown manages to rescue the Christmas story from both the contempt of experts and the sentimentality of naive laymen....Ordinary Christians can thank this priestly scholar for helping them to put the adult Christ back into Christmas."

But as time passed, biblical scholarship changed, prompting Father Brown to issue a completely revised and updated edition in 1993. Again, scholars and laypeople praised the book as "a work of the highest critical historical scholarship in a form that is accessible to the average well-educated reader...Brown's treatment of the infancy narratives is definitive. It will undoubtedly be the standard work on the subject for years to come" (Best Sellers).
