Joy to the World - preaching the Christmas story

A book I often use to plan my Christmas sermons is Joy to the world: Preaching the Christmas Story by Paul Beasley-Murray.

The book is full of Beasley-Murray’s summary exegesis of familiar passages from the gospels, the Old Testament prophecies and some of the reflections of the Good News in the New Testament letters.  This year I’ve spoken at four Christingle services, four Carol Services, seven assemblies, and four youth services – whilst there is some opportunity for repetition it is helpful to have other peoples suggestions and angles on how to share some of the Christmas story in different ways.

Certainly a helpful resource to keep on your study bookcase.
