The First Christmas

Neon Genesis

Recommended Posts

A really good book for some PC reading in the holiday season that I would highly recommend is the book The First Christmas by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. I really appreciate this book because I often hear it said that the virgin birth myth is allegory but they take it farther than that and go into a very detailed explanination of what they think the symbolism means. I don't know for certain how the authors intended it to be read, but now I feel like I now have a deeper and more richer understanding of the virgin birth myths and I would highly recommend it for a good Christmas read.

I will have to look into that book. I'm becoming a big fan of Marcus Borg. I'm currently reading on of his books called "Meeting Jesus Again for the First time". I really like the way he writes. I feel even more connected.
