It's easy to get wrapped up in a flurry of Christmas activities this time of year.... forgetting Jesus, who is at the center of it all. But author Daniel Darling talks with Ed Stetzer about the real life people in the Christmas story, from the angels and shepherds to Herod and Jesus himself. He says digging into the Christmas story with fresh eyes during this time of year, can help reveal truths from their lives that impact us today.
