Dr. Darrell Bock on “The Nativity Story”

Dr. Darrell Bock is Research Professor of New Testament Studies and Professor of Spiritual Development and Culture at Dallas Theological Seminary {his books and bio can be found here}. Here’s his mini-review of the upcoming Christmas movie “The Nativity Story“…

“Its production level was not what I expected. It looked more like a TV movie. The story is more of a character development of Mary and Joseph in terms of the actual story. In that way it felt more like a European film or a Hallmark effort. That element is done nicely. The film does give a terrific feel for what first century life was like. It is an average film, not great, not poor. It does keep to the story line of the gospels with additional scenes added to give a feel for what Mary and Joseph faced given the Virgin Birth backdrop.”
