A touching and essential telling of the familiar Christmas story.
Focusing on the personal lives of John the Baptist, Joseph, Mary, the prophet Nephi in America, and the Baby Jesus, it reminds us of the extraordinary faith and sacrifices of these key characters in the Nativity narrative.
Readers will be amazed at the faith and charity of Joseph toward Mary before he knew anything at all about the divine source of her conception.
They will be touched by the faith and obedience of the very young virgin Mary despite the threat of rejection and death.
They will be inspired by the faith of Nephi as he prayed from the coming of the Messiah to save the lives of his people in the Americas.
They will gain a new appreciation of the condescension of the Mighty God, the Prince of Peace, in allowing Himself to be born in such a mean and lowly and filthy place.
Dr. Randal S. Chase, a veteran CES and Institute instructor, provides insights into these events that cannot be found anywhere else, and he does so in a relaxed and understandable style. Readers will find themselves gaining insights and understanding about this story of the Birth of Jesus that have eluded them before.
The cover features the beautiful painting of the “Journey to Bethlehem” by Joseph Brickey.

An unusually large volume, it covers most of the Book of Acts, the New Testament epistles, and the Book of Revelation. We read of Saul’s conversion and then follow him as the Apostle Paul as he takes his five major journeys throughout the Mediterranean area. This volume is the third of three study guides on the New Testament.
It discusses the final year of the Savior’s ministry, His prophecies of the Last Days and the 2nd Coming, the Last Supper, His atonement in Gethsemane, His torture, crucifixion and death on Calvary, followed by His mission to the spirit world, His resurrection, His 40-day ministry among the Apostles, and His ascension into heaven.
It covers the life of Christ from his premortal selection as the Lamb of God through His birth and childhood. Then we follow the Master during the first year of His ministry as He is tempted, baptized, performs miracles, selects Twelve Apostles, and then teaches with parables and in the Sermon on the Mount. During the second year of His ministry, He teaches the Bread of Life sermon, is transfigured, and bestows priesthood keys to the Twelve. He finishes the second year of His ministry at Jerusalem, where He declares Himself to be the Light of the World, the Son of God, and the Messiah.
