Simone  Paganini, Claudia  Paganini - The Holy Night! Well actually...


Christmas was way different

Probably no other event has influenced the world as strongly as the birth of Jesus. But what happened really on that fateful day? The Bible tells of contradictory events. And it is not really obvious when and where Jesus was born with further details remaining entirely in the shadows: Why was Jesus perceived as the Messiah? Was his mother really a virgin? And her husband an old geezer? What about the angels, shepherds and the three wise men? Where did the ox and the donkey come from and did it actually snow?

Biblical scholars have researched a lot to illuminate the darkness of the Holy Night. This book presents their findings. They are as sobering as they are freeing. Christmas was completely different and yet can stay what it is: A fascinating feast letting the eyes of children shine brightly and captivating the minds of adults with its message.

• The Holy Night illuminated at last!

• The whole truth on the most peculiar birth in world history

• For all who want to newly discover the secrets of Christmas
