Barker's Christmas book

Margaret Barker's new book, Christmas, the Original Story (SPCK Publishing, 2008, ISBN 0281060509), examines nativity traditions with an eye to temple theology. It has been available in England for over a month. However, I have not been able to find it available on any of the standard internet book dealers in the US.

For those of you who just can't wait 'til Christmas, it can be purchased from England via ABE Books

Then UK book distributor "TheBookCom" sells new copies for $11.81, with $10.33 for international shipping, which is about what you'd pay buying a new copy in the US given the exchange rate.

If anyone knows if the book is available in the US, let us know.

I have the book! :) But someone sent it to me, so I don't know where it came from. I'll ask them and get back to you.

My book came from England. Sorry! :)

I found a copy online at that ships from IL for $18.67 plus shipping. I don't know if that would be cheaper than getting it from England or not.

With shipping that's about what you can get it from the UK. But you'd get it faster from IL. Thanks for the update.
