J. F. David brings the Nativity to the 21st Century in his book Midnight Mysteries. He skillfully captures the very human reality of birth and the emotions that must have been swirling around Mary and Joseph. Using poetic prose, David examines uncertainty, trepidation, courage, anticipation, and disillusionment. David shines light on our apathy and anxiety. Through his reflections, we find hope and a sense of God’s presence in our lives.
