This is a book about the real Christmas; the one that has been lost by being turned into a children’s nativity play. The one that’s been buried under made-up details about donkeys and innkeepers and kings.
And this is a book about why what really happened at Christmas really matters today—about how these amazing events can transform people’s lives and futures.
Short, funny, friendly and easy-to-read, Christmas Uncut retells the Christmas story, and explains the gospel message as it does so. Perfect for giving away to unbelieving family and friends, whether they think they know the Christmas story, or know that they don’t; and ideal for giving away at the end of Christmas church events.

Praise for Christmas Uncut:
An accessible, faithful guide to the actual Christmas story. Let this book help you get to grips with the reality and purpose of Christmas, and introduce you to the person who is at the center of it all.
-Trevin Wax, author of Counterfeit Gospels and Holy Subversion, Gospel Coalition blogger and Managing Editor of The Gospel Project.
This is a great book for people who think they know the Christmas story, and for those who know that they don’t. It’s both creative and historical, simple and insightful, fresh and faithful. It’s a great book, and I hope it is widely read and used.
-Kevin DeYoung, Pastor, University Reformed Church, East Lansing MI
“A humorous, piercing and above all truthful book that challenges our preconceptions of Christmas. Carl writes with wit and a real grasp of modern minds to show us that Jesus can’t stay in the manger.
