Through the eyes of fourteen biblical characters, David focusses us powerfully and precisely on the real Character at the heart of Christmas, Jesus Christ. Whether you’re a Christian who struggles to get excited about Christmas, or a seeker wondering what all the fuss is really about, this is a beautifully written invitation to come and behold the One at the heart of Christmas, Immanuel, God with Us.
Andy Bannister, Director of Solas (Centre for Public Christianity)
Does Christmas feel consumer–driven, or overly–sentimental, or even over–familiar? I heartily recommend this book as a refreshing and inspiring antidote! We see the story through the eyes of many different witnesses across scripture, providing us with a fresh perspective which is Christ–centred, faith–building and heart–warming – the best Christmas book I have read for many years!
Jonathan Lamb, Minister–at–large for Keswick Ministries, IFES Vice President, and former Director, Langham Preaching
No part of Scripture is better known than the Christmas story – and none is more widely misunderstood. David Randall … reveals the story’s dynamic, life–changing truth as seen through the eyes of its prophets and participants. Easy to read, enhanced by excellent illustrations and thoroughly grounded in God’s Word, Come and Behold Him will open your eyes, stimulate your mind and warm your heart. I strongly recommend it.
