Lennart Nilsson's unique photographic story -- a universal introduction to the miracle of life. In 1965 Lennart Nilsson published images from inside the human uterus, the first photographs of prenatal life. The book that was to follow, A Child is Born, stunned the world -- offering an unprecedented glimpse at the unseen world within our bodies, and our own beginnings. Using high-definition ultrasound technique, scanning electron and light microscopes, and advanced fibre optics Lennart Nilsson documents the miracle of human reproduction: the egg travelling down the fallopian tube; the sperm racing to meet it; the moment of fertilization; the very first cell division; the tiny embryo attaching to the uterine wall; the growth of eyes, ears, fingers and toes; and finally the moment of delivery itself -- providing an astonishing glimpse of the first moments of life. In this, the fully revised fifth edition, A Child is Born is redefined for a new age. With a completely new accompanying text, the images are rendered in astonishing detail utilising revolutionary new photographic technology, with the photographs themselves the dominant driving force of the narrative.

Two thousand years ago, something happened that would change the world forever: a child was born. Two thousand years ago, in the tiny city of Bethlehem, the event that would forever change the world unfolded quietly in the most humble of circumstances. In all of history, Christ's birth was unique. Similarly, of all the holidays we celebrate, nothing can compare to the holiday that celebrates His birth. Holly and pine boughs, candles and ornaments, peace, love, and tradition all remind us of the ties that bind us to each other and to our Savior. Because of Christ's divine birth, family ties can literally become eternal. This Christmas, curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and let the chapters in this book guide you through the symbols of the season and the real story of Christmas. Interwoven with insights from the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible, the words of the prophets, and insights from the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, this age-old Christmas story will take on new meaning and new life like never before.
