‘The First Christmas’ Book Discussion

For three sessions during Advent, we will have a discussion around the book The First Christmas by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. The discussion dates will be:

  • December 5th at 6:45pm after the Advent Gathering potluck
  • December 12th, 7-8pm
  • December 19th, 7-8pm

In The First Christmas, the authors help us see the real Christmas story buried in the familiar Bible accounts. Basing their interpretations on the two nativity narratives in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, Borg and Crossan focus on the literal story – the inner truth rather than the historical facts – to offer a clear and uplifting message of hope and peace.
