Why do Christians hold so strongly to Christ’s virgin birth as a significant doctrine? Can it be discarded from its key position in our faith? Crowe looks at seven objections to the virgin birth and investigates the relevant biblical texts.

Written to equip and strengthen laypeople in their defense of the faith, Christian Answers to Hard Questions challenges contemporary opposition to Christianity with concise, practical answers.


“This booklet makes a valuable contribution to this series.  It is difficult to imagine a similarly brief treatment of this topic that would be more helpful.”

—Richard B. Gaffin, Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

“Here is an excellent exposition of Jesus’ miraculous conception, what is commonly called the virgin birth.  Brandon Crowe explains the New Testament teaching, patiently deals with modern objections, and shows why the faith in the Virgin Birth not only remains tenable but is vital for Christians today.  Readers will find his treatment both illuminating and edifying.”

—Charles E. Hill, Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando
