Overview

There are two miracles confessed in every form of the Creed—the miracle of the Conception and Birth, by which the Incarnation was effected; and the miracle of the Resurrection. These are fundamental miracles, and are the battleground upon which the defenders and assailants of Christianity usually meet. Berkeley William Randolph divides his treatise on the virgin-birth into four areas. First, he gives the evidence for the belief in this article of the Creed during the second century. Next, he considers the evidence of St. Matthew and St. Luke. Thirdly, he considers the argument e silentio on the other side. And lastly, he reflects on the theological aspect of the question.

Praise for the Print Edition

An excellent tractate on an important and timely subject.

Churchman

This little book is a defense of the historical character of the miraculous birth of Christ and of its importance as a matter of Christian faith. It is shown that faith in the virgin-birth of Jesus Christ was in the early Church universally held to be an integral part of Christian belief.

Sewanee Review

A concise treatment of the subject, the result of conscientious study, and deserving of careful perusal.
