This ebook is pleasantly simple, and does not seek to do anything more than what it sets out to do. As the description states, it presents various scripture verses in succession to tell the story of the birth of Christ. It begins with verses from Old Testament prophets Isaiah and Micah, leading up to the well-known verses from Luke 2 and Matthew 2. I appreciated Mr. Davis placing the verses from Luke 2 prior to those found in Matthew 2; this correctly shows the proper sequence of events that can be lost when reading them in the opposite order.
This collection of verses, and their sequence, gives additional clarity to how the prophecies of Christ's birth in the Old Testament highlight the coming fulfillment later completed in the New Testament. Some of these verses could be easily overlooked so having them all together is helpful.
There are a couple of minor errors with the book, but they are so inconsequential that I would still give the book 5 stars. Thanks for putting it together!
