Born For Our Salvation: The Nativity and Childhood of Jesus Christ
In his clear and easy-to-read style, Rev. Martyn McGeown demonstrates that Jesus’ birth is the first step in Christ’s humiliation, the first step that would lead to the cross, and therefore the first step to our salvation.
This biblical account of Jesus’ nativity and childhood explains the significances behind the angel Gabriel’s announcement to Mary, humble shepherds worshiping newborn Christ, the boy Jesus being about his father’s business, and more. In all of these events Rev. McGeown demonstrates one great truth especially: Jesus, the Son of God, was born for our salvation.
“If you only have time to read one book this Christmas season, I recommend Born For Our Salvation. McGeown’s writing style is clear; his exegesis is sober; his applications are convicting and edifying. People of all ages, from young adults to elderly saints, will find the book understandable and encouraging.”—Rev. Stephen Regnerus, Lynden, WA
“What an amazing gift God has given us in the miracle of his Son in our flesh, our Immanuel! If you are looking for a book to guide you safely to the side of the manger, and from the manger to the foot of the cross, you cannot do much better than Born For Our Salvation by Pastor McGeown. From beginning to end the exposition is faithful to the word of God which will move you to proclaim the same words which form the book’s conclusion: “Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift” (2 Cor. 9:15).”—Rev. Joe Holstege, Jenison, MI
