Every year, TV schedules are filled with programmes that are ostensibly 'Christmas specials'.
We're invited to watch everything from Christmas versions of soaps, to seasonal editions of reality shows and comedies.
This year, why not take a few minutes to watch a real Christmas story: the story of the world's most amazing book?
It's the book that tells us about Christ and his work on behalf of all humanity.
Murder, sex, mystery, intrigue... It's got it all. This book has shaped languages & cultures and despite many attempts to descredit it through the centuries, it is today's worldwide #1 bestseller... and it has an interesting back-story.

Hi Mal, you recently preached at our Sunday service at Rhema Bible Church in Joburg, South Africa. You preached God's word with such simplicity and I left church feeling really inspired. It's been a blessing going through the articles on this site. Elaine, South Africa
Passion: I think it flew out the window the moment political correctnes reared its ugly head! So much in the world today is bland and lacking in intensity but I don't want to calm down! Ann, Australia
