The New Testament begins not with a dramatic narrative or lofty poetry, but with a genealogy. Provocatively, Matthew's gospel includes women in Jesus' family line - something that wasn't customary in an ancient culture, where women were largely powerless and uninfluential.
In this surprising take on the Christmas story, Tim Keller reveals how - by focusing on the women in Jesus' birth narratives - a colourful, scandalous and refreshing tale of grace emerges.
"The reading of this book led me to a deeper appreciation of the grace given to me. For the non-Christian reader this book may well be transformational... Keller displays a great gift in being able to take complex theological subject and explain them with clarity and simplicity, making the message accessible to everyone." - Presbyterian Herald
