Good Tidings of Great Joy

Good Tidings of Great Joy
By Eric D. Hunstman
Deseret Book, 2011. 166 pgs. Nonfiction

Huntsman takes a look at the biblical Christmas story as well as offering ideas for making Christmas meaningful. He compares the accounts in Matthew and Luke, looking at the Hebrew and Greek roots of the words to add insights into their accounts. He also looks at Book of Mormon prophecies of Christ and includes sidebars about Christmas carols.

This book is loaded with illustrations and information. I will say that having quite so many sidebars got distracting for me, but overall, I think most readers will find something they enjoy in this book.
