About the Book

Christmas, for many people, can be summed up as the traditional nativity scene; Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, the shepherds, the magi and a few farm animals. Yet is that scene an accurate and adequate depiction of the Christmas story. Drawing on the biblical records, views of commentators and other historical information, Professor Kingwell takes the reader on a deeper examination of the people and events most of us know as the Christmas narrative. His exploration reveals much that will be new and interesting for many readers; and their appreciation for what we know to be the Christmas story will be enriched.

About the Author

Ross Kingwell is a professor of agricultural economics at the University of Western Australia. He is a distinguished fellow of the Australasian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society and chief economist in the Australian Export Grains Innovation Centre. However, as he readily admits, when it comes to theology or scripture, he heralds no formal qualification or academic prowess. Yet in spite of his amateur status, his study of the scripture, as revealed in this book, is nonetheless thorough, serious and insightful.
