Christmas is a great time to give a non-Christian friend or church visitor a short book getting to the heart of what it's truly all about. This is perfect for giving out at church events, or with a present. Music is everywhere at Christmas chart-toppers, carols, children's tunes... Alistair Begg takes us to four songs that were sung by people at the very first Christmas (and his favourite carol).

Starting with the events surrounding Jesus' birth, this book takes us through centuries of commemoration, celebration and over-consumption.

At the centre of heaven is Christ, lovingly adored as the forever Lord of all. At the centre of Christmas is Christ, frail and cradled in the tender arms of a young mother.

It is an invitation to ponder the Incarnation, and a God who was please to dwell with us.
