Too often the virgin birth of Christ serves merely as an evangelical shibboleth
instead of a doctrine that affects our lives. The theological meaning of the
virgin birth is rich in and of itself. The author argues that the doctrine has
been too long ignored by the church. Collecting from disparate sources
into one brief accessible volume, Richard Shenk encourages the church
towards boldness, to understand the rich theological treasure that the virgin
birth of Christ is for us, and to live out its significance in joy and practice.
