You may have noticed the advertisement on the left of the page for the book “Unborn Jesus, Our Hope.” I just received a review copy from the author today.
The book begins from the very correct premise that the Incarnation of Christ began not at the Nativity, but at the Annunciation. (I’ve suggested in the past that we should rename March 25 the Feast of the Incarnation.) And thus for the first 9 months of His existence as fully God, fully Man, the Son of God was an unborn child. What does that mean for us? To find an answer Peate embarks on a nine-month meditation on the pregnancy of Mary and the gestation of Christ. Peate spent about 15 years researching and writing this book in his spare time.
