A wonderful, wonderful book which helped me better understand the birth narratives of Jesus in the Bible. This book is filled with information as each verse in those narratives and related prior texts in the Bible are looked at in considerable detail. And for me, as a mainline Protestant minister. Raymond Brown, now deceased, showed clearly that Roman Catholics and Protestants can do intensive biblical scholarship together, with considerable profit to both, even though there are some points were they, in line with their respective religious traditions, do differ markedly in their interpretations of specific texts. A large book, but well worth thoughtful and close study. ( )

1505 The Birth of the Messiah: A Commentary on the Infancy Narratives in Matthew and Luke, by Raymond E. Brown, S.S. (read 20 Feb 1979) The author is a Catholic priest. The book is a little more technical than I am prepared for. He analyzes very thoroughly the infancy narratives in Matthew and Luke. Thought-proving. This is the most technical Scripture study I've ever read. Worthwhile. ( )

The truth behind the Gospel accounts of the Nativity,a classic by a renowned scholar, hailed as "masterly" and "definitive" in its original edition.

An excellent quality resource that should be on every pastor's shelf. A thorough synthesis of academic work on the birth narratives of Christ blended with Brown's solid and matured insight into the scriptures. ( )
